Modular Machining Technology

The VL 2 vertical turning center offers flexible, cost-effective production for chucked components.

Machining area of the VL 2: 12 turning or driven drilling and milling tools can be employed to perform a large number of operations in a single set-up. The machine can also be equipped with an optional Y-axis.

The VL series for highly productive manufacturing: Idle times on these machines have been reduced to an absolute minimum. For example, the chip-to-chip time on the VL 2 is just 5 seconds.

At WESTEC 2017, EMAG will feature manufacturing systems for precision metal components with the modular VL 2 vertical pick-up turning machine for the efficient machining of components up to 100 mm in diameter.

The VL series will be on display for visitors to experience the EMAG modular inverted vertical lathe design. With the aim to develop a system of modular machines ideal for use in the manufacturing of medium and large batch runs, one common feature of all four machine sizes is the shared basic, compact design. Their small footprint means reduced floor space costs and flexibility in machine layout (for example, Chaku Chaku or closed loop arrangement). Every VL machine features an integrated O-automation system for transporting workpieces. When combined with the self-loading pick-up spindles, this automation concept ensures short cycle times and high productivity. To accommodate machine operators, all the service units are within reach, with the various units (electrics, hydraulics, cooling system, cooling lubricant and central lubrication system) accessible at any time so that the machines can be maintained with ease.

The technologies in the EMAG Group cover the entire spectrum of metalworking, including non-traditional processes. Electro chemical machining (ECM) is used in the aerospace sector for the manufacture of blisks, while laser welding is essential in lightweighting automotive components. The latest addition to this diverse technology portfolio features simultaneous dual frequency (SDF) technology; eldec hardening systems complement the workpieces machined by EMAG lathes to create efficient, complete production lines. The flexible machine concepts and complete systems from EMAG offer modular and customized solutions for the production of workpieces in nearly every industry.
