Tool changing system

  • Fixed location coded tool management enables better monitoring for the operator
  • Support of various tool holding systems such as SK, BT, HSK
  • Tool magazine is protected outside of working area
  • Placement of the magazine during machining possible
  • Tool change takes place behind working area cladding: no disturbing contours in the working area during tool change by the gripper or parts
 

  • Cross slides, travelling columns and spindle head stock are made from high-quality cast iron
  • Extremely rigid, static and dynamically well balanced ground frame construction
  • Casing according to current machinery directives, totally closed working area with no interfering contours
  • Total access to working area when doors are fully open
  • Excellent accessibility for maintenance and service tasks
  • Machine transport in one piece
 

    In addition, the VCC can be flexibly extended, for example:

  • Through spindle coolant with filter system
  • Chip conveyor in slat-band belt, scraper belt or magnetic belt versions
  • Controllers either from Heidenhain or Siemens
  • Rotary tables horizontally or vertically integrated, in 1 or 2 axes, combined with tailstocks, counterbearings or a further rotary table in gantry mode for clamping bridges.
  • Automatic doors
  • Clamping systems - hydraulic, pneumatic, magnetic or manual
  • Touch probes and tool touch probe systems
  • Active power monitoring, collision monitoring and complete process monitoring
  • Tool identification systems
  • Laser breakage control with tool measurement
  • Remote maintenance


  • We can develop and manufacture special solutions for you upon request.
 

  • Hardened precision steel slideways mounted on manually scraped or grinded surfaces
  • Optimal guiding by extremely large guidance ratio and Turcite coatings
  • High rigidity, outstanding long-term precision performance and excellent vibration absorbing capabilities of the guideways
  • Excellent resetting and adjustability of the guideways
  • Drives and guideways are protected set outside of working area
  • Ball screws in all linear axes
