VPC 2800 U/D with additional turning equipment

Milling, drilling and turning in a single clamping by the optional additional turning equipment
Excellent accessibility and optional possibility of crane loading by complete covering with automatic doors and automatically opening bellows in the roof area

Upgrading with a fast turning rotary table expands the possibilities of the machining centre VPC 2800 U/D: Simple turning work is possible alongside milling and drilling.

The machine has been adapted in every detail to turning according to the stiff requirements: A further firmly fixed, hydraulic turning tool holder with automatic pull-in next to the working spindle serves to assimilate the corresponding required turning tools. The separate clamping unit in CAPTO C6 version for turning tools caters for utmost stability, clear turning tools orientation and avoids further stress on the main spindle bearing during turning operation.

The enhancement of the turning functionality brings about one of the outstanding features of this machine – namely changing between two tool holder systems. Alongside the standard SK 50 magazine for drilling and milling tools, a further separate tool magazine is fitted for turning tools with CAPTO C6 tool holder. This is in a protected area underneath the gantry support. A double gripping system for each magazine here enables short tool changing times. The stationary set magazine chains provide for the possibility of loading the magazine during machining.
