New Vertical Turning Center to be Exhibited



The new Giddings & Lewis V 1000 vertical turning center will be on display in the Ross Machinery Sales booth 1235 at EASTEC. The new turning center line, with six table sizes from 800 to 2,500 mm, is designed specifically for shops seeking a dependable, multi-purpose lathe for pumps, valves, gears, bearings, compressors, wheel hubs, jet engine housings and more. The V Series lathes offer high metal removal rates and high precision.

All V series machines incorporate a hydrostatic ram to maximize rigidity for heavy, chatter-free cutting and improved part finish. The hydrostatic wear-free guides require less maintenance. "The V Series is engineered to be flexible, reliable and affordable in response to feedback from our job shop customers," said Pete Beyer, Fives Giddings & Lewis Sales and Applications Director. "All models have a compact footprint, and there is no requirement for special foundations, so the machine can be easily relocated, if necessary. We encourage customers to compare the capabilities and value of the V Series, and we are confident these new machines will impress."

The Giddings & Lewis VLock tooling system provides a stiff interface for modular tooling adaptors, long cutting tools and the optional heavy-duty right angle milling attachment. Modular turning tools more than double the taper stiffness at loads up to 1,800 Nm," added Beyer. "Standard modular tools offer significant savings over proprietary vertical lathe tooling offered on most vertical lathes. Modular tools are also lighter, easier and safer to handle, requiring less time to maintain."

The V Series is designed and built at the Fives Giddings & Lewis plant in Fond du Lac, WI and stays true to Giddings & Lewis design traditions, with solid cast iron base construction and versatility offered by optional live spindle attachments and a C-axis table. "By adding the V Series, starting with 800 mm tables, to our existing VTC Series of vertical turning centers, with swings up to 9 meters, we are positioned to offer manufacturers the broadest and best range of turning solutions," said Kevin Lichtenberg, Fives Giddings & Lewis President.

Ross Machinery Sales represents Fives Giddings & Lewis in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
