The small powerhouse

No matter if the small VCC or the "big" VCC 50 - each of our machine types provides a variety of solutions on a compact basis. The small space requirement makes the VCC particularly interesting for small and medium-sized companies.


  • Main design

    Main design

    • 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
  • Guideways and drives

    Guideways and drives

    • 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
    • Alternatively with roller guides
    • Drives and guideways are protected set outside of working area
    • Ball screws in all linear axes
  • Tool changing system

    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
  • Tilting spindle

    Tilting spindle

    The VCC 50 has the option to extend the three main axes with a swivel head with SK 50 tool holding system and / or a vertically or horizontally integrated rotary table.
