Designed for reliability and ease of use, Toyoda's Inverted vertical turning center features a traveling inverted spindle that allows direct part pickup to aid in chip management. According to the company, the machine is flexible enough to be used as a stand-alone machine or as part of a production line.
In addition to standard inverted-spindle turning with built-in automation, fixed-spindle and live turret tooling is available. The spindles are thermo-stabilized and equipped with a hydraulic breaking system for sturdiness and an encoder for positioning. For vibration damping and rigidity, the machine is built with a mono-block polymerized concrete-filled, steel fabrication base. It is available in several models and speeds to accommodate various part sizes and materials.
