Multi-Spindle Machines – VSC DUO

The DUO multi-spindle machine offers a cost effective solution for machining in two operations. Featuring two separate machining areas allows the two overhead slides to be programmed independently. Each machining area has an EMAG disc-type turret mounted in the end wall, which can also be programmed independently.

All DUO multi-spindle machines have a MINERALIT® polymer concrete machine base, the damping properties of which are 8 times those of cast iron. Simple, flexible workpiece handling on all VSC series machines, including the multi-spindle machines, includes loading and unloading from either the right or the left.

VSC DUO Multi-Spindle Machine for Medium and Large Batch Production

VSC DUO multi-spindle machines have the smallest footprint for the machining of components in first and second operation. The multi-spindle lathes can be used for identical or different machining cycles, as they feature two separate machining areas with independently programmable overhead slides and turrets to streamline sequential operations (OP 10 + OP 20).

    Both turrets on these multi-spindle machines accommodate not only stationary tools but also driven drilling and milling tools. This allows for either identical or different operations to be carried out on the two work spindles.

    Advantages VSC DUO

    • Safe, no-wear, maintenance-free machining area envelope
    • All machine assemblies with a bearing on accuracy are fluid-cooled
    • The hydro-static bearings of the work spindle in Z-axis guarantee outstanding component quality and an extended tool life for soft and hard machining
    • The workpiece travels as the tooling systems remain stationary, offering ideal chip flow conditions with the tools are located below the workpiece (also ideal for dry machining)
    • Multi-functional production center: turning, drilling, milling, grinding, gear cutting, laser application and other processes
    • Extremely short loading and unloading times
    • Every machine is a manufacturing cell that utilizes the pick-up spindle to load itself
