The TVL10DC is a 50-hp vertical turret lathe that offers a 40" table, a swing of 48" and a 12-tool ATC. The machine has box ways on both the X and Z axes, with forced lubrication on all the ways. An 8" RAM structure on the Z axis is said to allow heavy duty cutting at maximum stroke. A two-speed gearbox provides low-end power; full 50-hp is available at 10 rpm. The machine features a Fanuc-0iT control.

  • Multitasking's "Big" Advantage

    As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.

    One of the largest vertical turning and milling centers in the country will be installed in this Cincinnati-area job shop. Although installing the foundation for this huge machine was a massive undertaking, the company is building on other “foundations” as well.
