Emag’s VM 9 modular, spindle-down vertical turning center promotes short setup times and flexibility in production. The machining area and all maintenance components are designed for easy access, offering an advantage for users who machine many different workpieces or various part families. The VTC is capable of machining chucked components with a maximum diameter of 450 mm, including parts for trucks, construction and agricultural machines, and mechanical and plant engineering, as one-off or small production runs.

The high damping properties of the turning center’s Mineralit body, combined with a compound slide on the X- and Z-axes ensure good machining quality, high-speed processes and short idle times, the company says. The main spindle provides the necessary power with an 83-kW rating with 990 Nm of torque. An integrated probe promotes process reliability by ensuring continuous quality control of the workpieces. The turning machine features a tool turret which can be fitted with as many as 12 tool positions, depending on the tool interface. The turret can also be equipped with driven tools to carry out drilling or milling operations.
