March 2010

In cooperation with EMCO enlarges its product range with a vertical turning machine – the EMCO VERTICAL VT 250 with integrated automation for chuck parts with a diameter of up to 200 mm.

HALLEIN – Designed for heavy-duty machining the VT 250 is equipped with an integrated self-loading system and even though, it gets along with a small foot print. High productivity, high repeat accuracy and good operability are the convincing product features that characterize this machine. The turning machine has an integrated pick-up system and self loads chuck parts with a diameter of up to 200 mm, thus saving the user the additional costs and programming time involved with the use of an automated unit. It is no longer necessary to align the automated unit and the machine, making downtime caused by synchronization issues a thing of the past.The VT 250 is also supplied as standard with a carrier frame system in which customers can store up to 24 tools. The carrier frame moves the tools into the pick-up position.The vertical, high-power spindle makes turning, drilling and threading operations easy. Even hard machining is possible thanks to the strong performance data.Equipped with oversized roller guides the new machine is predominantly suited for work on short and heavy workpieces with a large diameter. The large guide rails and guide shoe guarantee excellent stability despite high loads.The tool turret can hold 12 tools and is equipped with the VDI40 tool system.The basic machine also includes a coolant device and a chip conveyor, which ensures optimal chip removal.The new VT 250 is also ideally equipped from a control perspective: The new Sinumerik 828D from Siemens is impressively simple to operate and program. The ShopTurn interface particularly facilitates job shops with programming.EMCO VERTICAL VT 250 – this compact, high-performance machine, developed and produced in line with the “Design to Cost” principle, is your entrance ticket to vertical turning for a very attractive price!
