Tongtai and You Ji Machines Win 2017 Taiwan Excellence Awards



The Tongtai iTD 2000 YBC CNC turning center and the You Ji VHL-1200ATC series of vertical turning lathes (VTLs) have received 2017 Taiwan Excellence Awards. Absolute Machine Tools is the sole North American importer and distributor of Tongtai and You Ji machine tools.

The Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs and Taiwan External Trade Development Council established the Excellence Awards program to encourage Taiwan industries to upgrade their products and incorporate innovation and value. An international panel of judges chooses winners based on consistently high scores in four criteria: R&D, design, quality and marketing.

Tongtai iTD 2000

The judges recognized Tongtai's iTD 2000 YBC CNC turning center, debuted by Absolute Machine Tools at IMTS 2016, for its combination of new technologies and efficient machining processes.

The iTD 2000 YBC features a 75° slant bed design that allows chips to flow directly into the chip conveyor and also provides easy access to the spindles and turret. The machine's 45 mm roller-type ways permit high rapid traverse rates, and high-torque 20 HP main spindle and 10 HP sub-spindle motors offer high productivity. With a full C-axis featuring live tools and X-axis cross travel of 9.05" (226.3 mm), Z-axis longitudinal travel of 23.6" (590 mm) and B-axis sub-spindle travel of 24.8" (620 mm), the iTD 2000 YBC is designed to efficiently process a wide range of workpiece sizes.

The base of the ergonomically designed iTD 2000 YBC is a tough Meehanite iron casting. "The machine is engineered for production of high quality parts to exact specifications and therefore is an ideal choice for use in the aerospace, automotive, biomedical and other critical industries," said a company spokesperson.

You Ji VHL-1200ATC VTL

You Ji developed the VHL series to facilitate machining of workpieces with challenging shapes, such as those common in the aerospace industry. In addition to a vertical ram, each VHL machine also has a horizontal ram, simplifying access to difficult-to-reach machining areas and enabling use of shorter cutting tools that maximize rigidity and accuracy.

"In many cases, the horizontal RAM eliminates the need to move large parts from machine to machine, saving time and money by reducing steps in the machining process," said the spokesperson. "Further, machines in the VHL series feature rigid vertical columns and bases cast from Meehanite that are heavily ribbed for vibration dampening and reduced thermal distortion. Overall, the machines are designed to handle large parts and heavy table loads."

The two-axis side head permits heavy side cutting on tall parts, and it can perform simultaneous turning with the vertical ram. C-axis and live tools are optional for both rams.

Machines that were recognized included the VHL-1200ATC+C, VHL-1600ATC+C and VHL-2000ATC+C, each model addressing progressively larger parts. Maximum turning diameters range from 63" (1,575 mm) to 98.4" (2,460 mm), with 60-100 main spindle horsepower (44.7 - 75 kW) and torque from 9,220 ft/lbs. (12,500 Nm) to 41,143 ft/lbs. (55,780 Nm).

"You Ji was the first Taiwanese machine tool manufacturer to obtain CE and EMC certification for overseas sales," said the spokesperson. "Absolute Machine Tools has sold, installed and serviced more than 2,000 You Ji vertical lathes in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Romania, China, India and other countries."
