• 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
    • Direct measuring systems for X/Y/Z axes
    • Casing according to current machinery directives, totally closed working area with no interfering contours - also in pendulum operation mode
    • 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 VHC 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
    • Drives and guideways are protected set outside of working area
    • Ball screws in all linear axes with patented support units for ball screws in the X-axis for large travel lengths
  • Tool changing system

    Tool changing system

    • Fixed location coded tool management enables better monitoring for the operator
    • Tool pre-selection by double gripper arm during machining
    • Support of various tool holding systems such as SK, BT, HSK, CAPTO
    • Tool magazine is protected outside of working area
    • Placement of the XTS 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
    • Transport unit from XTS magazine has its own drive and moves at up to 120 m/min to the spindle position for the tool change
    • Any number of tool pockets are provided by several compact XTS towers
    • Tool pockets within a tower can also be expanded at any point in time in the future
  • Tilting spindle head

    Tilting spindle head

    • Vertical and horizontal machining
    • In combination with a rotary table, 5 face machining or 5 axes simultaneous machining can be achieved.
    • Tilting spindle head 0,001° indexing increments or fully interpolating.
    • Tilting range up to ± 100°
