Pick-up turning center VLC 300 for advanced machining of chucked parts

The VLC 300 is a pick-up turning machine that can be configured for a wide variety of applications. Especially ideal for machining large workpieces, it allows large chucked parts to be produced with high productivity and high precision.

VLC 300 – The Pick-Up Turning Machine With More Than Just Turning

The VLC 300 is designed for large workpieces up to 300 mm in diameter. The pick-up turning lathe makes it possible to utilize a range of machining technologies flexibly. This vertical turning machine is extremely compact and features powerful drives in its spindle and axes, ensuring adequate power at all times. Its highly flexible tooling options and powerful working spindle are supplemented by the integrated automation system with a pick-up spindle which makes the VLC 300 into a high-productivity production lathe.

Low-vibration machining is made possible by the Mineralit® polymer concrete body. This ensures long tool life and very high machining quality. The main spindle is fastened to the front of the machine base by means of a compound slide rest, allowing dynamic motion along the X-axis and Z-axis. A Y-axis in the tool turret is available as an option.

The VLC 300 is ideal for assembly-line use with a wide range of automation components for perfect interlinking.

Advantages VLC 300

  • Machining of chucked parts with a standardized machine concept
  • Small footprint (chaku-chaku or close linear arrangement) for reduced floor space costs with multiple options for machine positioning
  • Option of simple interlinking via central infeeding and outfeeding conveyors and pick-and-place/turnover units with flexibility for the future, lower automation costs, and shorter tooling times
  • Integrated automation with no additional costs (interfaces, etc.)
  • Short distances for part transport optimally minimize non-productive time
  • Common parts strategy and spare parts management for low life cycle costs
  • User-friendliness (easily accessible machining area) offers faster tool setup, safe operation and the option of compact alternative layouts
  • High energy efficiency for lower energy costs
