  • Main design

    Main design

    • Extremely rigid, static and dynamically well balanced ground frame construction
    • Spacious and easily accessible machine tables
    • Direct measuring systems for X/Y/Z axes
    • Cover according to current machinery directives
    • Ideal for crane loading by the open covering over the work area
    • Machine transport in one single piece
    • Optimal accessibility for all maintenance and service requirements


    In addition, the VPC 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
  • Guideways and drives

    Guideways and drives

    • Combination of sliding and roller guideways for high dynamics, stiffness and absorption
    • Guiding built upon manually scraped or grinded surface
    • Optimal guiding by extremely large guidance ratio
    • Real gantry drive in the Y-axis with corresponding individual drive, guideway and direct measuring system for both portal sides
    • Drives and guideways are protected
    • Ball screws in all linear axes
  • Tool changing system

    Tool changing system

    • Simple and very robust stationary placed tool changer
    • Magazine protected in rear part of machine
    • Stationary tool changer layout allows for long tool chains without any negative effect on machine dynamics and precision
    • Fixed location coded tool management for better operator monitoring
    • Simultaneous tool pre-selection by double gripping system
    • Support of various tool holding systems such as SK, BT, HSK, CAPTO
    • Magazine placement possible during machining
