The VLC 100 – Flexible CNC Turning Machine Available With a Range of Technologies

The VLC 100 – Flexible CNC Turning Machine Available With a Range of Technologies

The VLC 100 is a CNC turning machine with a modular structure that allows it to be configured for a wide variety of applications. Whether turning, grinding, milling, gear hobbing, or induction hardening — the CNC lathe can be flexibly equipped with virtually all the technologies of the EMAG Group.

The VLC 100 is the ideal CNC turning center for producing chucked parts up to 100 mm in diameter. The modular VL 2 machine already offers a wide range of configuration options, but with the VLC 100 there are essentially no limits to what the user can do. Technologies from the full portfolio of the EMAG Group can be installed on the VLC 100, making it one of the most versatile vertical CNC turning machines in the EMAG machine catalog. The VLC 100 is useful in any application where very high requirements are placed on the manufacture of parts. 

Integrated pick-up automation system

The CNC turning machines in the VLC series are equipped with a pick-up spindle that loads parts from the integrated conveyor belt and feeds them into the machining area—the short distance makes for shorter chip-to-chip times. The machining area can be configured flexibly and the tool turret, with its twelve tool positions, can be equipped with driven tools and stationary tools for the turning process.

A few of the available technology modules 

  • 12-position tool turret
  • Out-of-round turning unit
  • Horizontal drilling/milling units
  • Swiveling axes for milling and drilling
  • Hard turning (block tool holder)
  • Combined hard turning + OD grinding
  • Combined hard turning + ID + OD grinding
