Low-Cost Small Batch Production



The VM 9 was specially designed for the machining of chucked components with a diameter of up to 450 mm.

The bottom spindle can hold workpieces with a diameter of up to 450 mm. These are machined by the 12-station disk-type turret, which can be fitted with both turning and driven tools.

The VM 9 offers easy accessibility.

With the VM 9 modular turning machine, EMAG has introduced a platform that covers a broad spectrum of applications including turning, milling and drilling technologies. The easily accessible machining area and workpiece spindle, fitted at the bottom of the machine, offers decreased tooling times and increased flexibility to accommodate small batch production.

The VM 9 vertical turning center (VTC) is designed for the manufacture of individual and small production runs for a wide variety of parts. The heavy-duty base of the machine is made of MINERALIT polymer concrete. The damping properties of MINERALIT, combined with the compound slide on the X- and Z-axis, are designed to provide enhanced machining quality, high speed processes and short idle times. The main spindle provides an 83 kW rating and torque of 990 Nm.

Manufactured to machine chucked components with a maximum diameter of 450 mm (17.7"), the machine features a tool turret that can be fitted with up to 12 tool positions, depending on the tool interface (BMT or VDI). The turret can also be equipped with driven tools to perform drilling or milling operations. The integrated probe allows for complete process reliability by performing continuous quality control tests on the workpieces. These features equip the VM 9 to perform a wide variety of production tasks and to produce a wide range of workpieces.

Both the machining area and all maintenance components are easy to access. "This is a major advantage for customers who have to machine many different workpieces or various part families," explained Georg Händel, Manager of Technical Sales at EMAG Leipzig Maschinenfabrik GmbH.
