Vertical Lathe with Pick-Up Automation for Efficient Machining

Vertical Lathe with Pick-Up Automation for Efficient Machining

With the goal to develop a system of modular machines ideal for use in the manufacturing of medium and large batch runs, one common feature of all the new EMAG modular machines is the basic, compact design. Their small footprint means reduced floor space costs and flexibility in machine layout (for example, Chaku Chaku or closed loop arrangement). Every VL vertical lathe features an integrated O-automation system for transporting workpieces on its left-hand side. When combined with the self-loading pick-up spindles, this automation concept ensures short cycle times and high productivity. 

To accommodate machine operators, all the service units are easily within reach, with various units (electrics, hydraulics, cooling system, cooling lubricant and central lubrication system) accessible at any time so that the vertical lathes can be maintained with ease. With low maintenance costs due to the use of standardized components, excellent accessibility, reduced floor space costs, integrated automation and short cycle/idle times bringing the cost per unit to a minimum, the goal of EMAG vertical lathes is clear: cost saving without compromising quality.
