New VMC Series for Heavy-Duty Applications



Milltronics USA, Inc. has added another new series to its VMC lineup. Last year, Milltronics released the VM Series of affordable machines and the VM-IL Series of performance machines. Now, Milltronics has announced its new XP Series (XP for eXtra Power) of #50 taper machines for heavy-duty applications.

The new XP Series includes three models - the VR4325XP, the VM5025XP and the VM6030XP - all feature the new Milltronics Series 9000 control.

The VR4325XP, a medium-travel box way machine that features a 6,000 RPM two-speed geared head with 35 HP and almost 1,200 ft-lbs. of torque, has XYZ travels of 43" x 25.5" x 23.6". It has a 24 station swing-arm ATC. The machine comes standard with a coolant ring, washdown system and chip auger.

The VM5025XP is larger and has XYZ travels of 50" x 25" x 24". The VM6030XP is the biggest XP with XYZ travels of 60" x 30" x 24". Both the VM5025XP and VM6030XP feature massive castings and oversized 45 mm linear motion guide cross roller ways. Standard is an 8,000 RPM heavy-duty belt driven 24 HP dual wound spindle that generates 255 ft-lbs. of torque. There is an option for a 35 HP version that generates 365 ft-lbs. of torque. Both models feature a 30 station swing arm ATC. A coolant ring, washdown system and lift-up chip conveyor are included as standard equipment.

According to Louie Pavlakos, Milltronics USA General Manager, "The XP Series machines are the newest additions to our reinvented Milltronics VMC product line. We have designed these machines to be tough and powerful but also affordable and easy to use. They all feature the new Series 9000 control, which has all the user-friendly features Milltronics is known for, but with upgraded hardware and a new Windows operating system."

The Series 9000 control runs on an Intel Dual Core i5-3610ME 64 bit processor and offers 4 GB memory, 120 GB disk storage, two USB ports and an enlarged 15" LCD color touchscreen. An optional feature for the Series 9000 is Milltronics Shop View (MSV), which allows users to access machine status and collect usage and diagnostic info per Industry 4.0. MSV is hosted in the cloud and can be accessed with a PC, tablet or smartphone. "The new XP Series lets customers tackle tough jobs with traditional power but also offers today's high tech benefits of an advanced yet easy-to-use control that does not require a highly-trained operator," said Pavlakos.
