Designed for heavy cutting applications, Toyoda Americas Corporation ’s Stealth VB215 machining center uses the company’s cast iron headstock and vibration damping technology. The bridge machine features a compact Z-axis ram construction to support the center’s 6,000-rpm, geared-head spindle, contributing to stability during milling and drilling operations.

Other machines from the company include a five-axis VMC for titanium machining, universal grinding machines with adjustable wheelheads, a multipurpose turning center with twin turret and twin spindle, and a production gear manufacturing machine. The five-axis VMC has a 2-axis tilting head, high-torque A and B axes with gear-driven design, and hybrid box and linear guideway construction. The grinding machines have adjustable wheelheads for straight and angular applications, 45-degree swivel increments to grind smaller diameter journals, and reinforced bed designs. The multipurpose center is designed for process integration. It has twin upper T15 turrets, built-in twin spindles, a 2" bar capacity and 8" chucks.
