On display will be Emag’s VL 3 Duo, a multi-spindle machine for the high-production manufacturing of chucked parts up to 6 inches in diameter. It is equipped with two separate machining areas, which shortens cycle and setup times. 

The machine integrates all of the most recent of Emag’s machine developments, including self-loading spindle, the TrackMotion automation system and modular machine design. The TransLift system is responsible for the complete transport of parts, taking care of loading and unloading as well as part change between operations. With these features, the VL 3 Duo is said to be ideal for high production while maintaining a minimum footprint.
