At Westec 2015, EMAG will feature manufacturing systems for precision metal components with the North American premier of its new VM spindle down machine platform for the low-cost production of small batches and complex geometries.
Part of the large family of EMAG modular machines, the VM 9 vertical turning center combines a reliable platform with an extensive range of equipment. Designed to machine chucked components with a maximum diameter up to 450 mm, it features a tool turret which can be fitted with up to twelve tool positions and can be equipped with driven tools to carry out drilling or milling operations.
An integrated probe delivers absolute process reliability by ensuring continuous quality control of the workpieces, making the VM 9 extremely well equipped for a wide variety of production tasks, enabling it to produce a wide range of workpiece formats.
The VL series will also be on display for visitors to experience the successful EMAG modular inverted vertical lathe design. With the aim to develop a system of modular machines ideal for use in the manufacturing of medium and large batch runs, one common feature of all four machine sizes is the shared basic, compact design. Their small footprint means reduced floor space costs and flexibility in machine layout.
Every VL machine features an integrated O-automation system for transporting workpieces. When combined with the self-loading pick-up spindles, this automation concept ensures short cycle times and high productivity. To accommodate machine operators, all the service units are easily within reach, with the various units (electrics, hydraulics, cooling system, cooling lubricant and central lubrication system) accessible at any time so that the machines can be maintained with ease.
