Carousel lathes

The vertical format is ideal for round and disc-shaped workpieces, as is allows for easier clamping, better swarf removal and takes up less space. The one-piece cast Meehanite machine beds are excellent at absorbing vibrations and provide thermal management which reduces thermal expansion to a minimum. This means that, even during continuous operation, a consistently high level of precision and surface quality is maintained when machining demanding workpieces. The VT-450 and VT-650 turning centres can be ordered with their spindles fitted either on the left-hand or the right-hand side, so that they can be seamlessly connected and automated. The VT-950+ and VT-1150+ are designed for the cutting of particularly high volumes and/or tough materials.

For workpiece diameters of 2 m and above, a portal-based version of the VT machines is available.

Extremely robust vertical lathes for continuous use

The lathes with horizontal spindles are designed for continuous operation. Heavy monolithic cast iron beds with box guideway based travelling columns guarantee a stable cutting process. Mirror-image models are available, allowing two machines to be joined together. For workpiece diameters of 2 m and above, a portal-based design is available (carousel lathe).
