CNC Lathe for High-Productivity Vertical Turning of Flange-Type Workpieces

What are the advantages for the user when the main spindle of a vertical CNC lathe acts like a movable pick-up arm that collects the raw-part and unloads it again once it has been machined, carrying out all required travels, even those that have to be made during the machining process? The answer is obvious: an enormous amount of time is saved with practically every application as a number of processes are combined in one compact sequence. Of great importance for this is the heart of the CNC lathe: the multifunctional overhead slide with the pick-up spindle. This slide contains the quill that incorporates the integral workspindle and carries out all movements.

Extreme rigidity, high rapid traverse speeds and short strokes, together with the integral coolant system, guarantee precision, high productivity levels and short idle times for the VSC 250 production machine.

VSC 250 CNC Lathe: Vertical Turning + Automation + Measuring

The VSC 250 CNC lathe is configured to suit individual manufacturing requirements incorporating vertical turning technology, integrated automation and measurement. The vertical design of the VSC 250 provides the shortest possible travel distances between the pick-up station and machining area. This reduces idle times to a minimum. The machine base of MINERALIT® and the double-wall construction ensure the best possible damping and outstanding heat stabilization. An extensive selection of technology modules allows the machine to be configured to suit individual, customer-specific production requirements.

The availability of diverse automation components also allows for integration into manufacturing systems. 

Advantages VSC 250

  • Every machine is a production cell that utilizes its pick-up spindle to load itself
  • Short travel times and equally short machining times
  • Multifunctional production tool: turning, drilling, milling, grinding and other processes
  • The workpiece travels while the tooling systems remain stationary
  • Ideal chip flow conditions due to the tools being located below the workpiece
  • The work spindle with a hydro-static guideway in Z-axis (optional) ensures outstanding component quality and a high tool life for soft and hard machining operations
  • All accuracy defining machine assemblies are fluid-cooled
  • Safe, wear resistant, maintenance-free machining area envelope
  • Dry machining is easy with the VSC because the work spindle and tools are ideally positioned for this purpose
