Momentum Installs Enhanced-Specification "Texas Edition" VTL



Momentum Machine Tool Company and Technical Equipment recently completed an installation of Momentum's MVL-16M "Texas Edition" model at Paducah Gear and Machinery in Calvert City, KY.

The MVL-16M is a 63" table vertical turning lathe (VTL) with 78" swing, live milling capability and a 22,000 lb. workpiece capacity. The standard model offers a 75 HP main spindle, 63" turning height and 81,000 lbs. of machine mass. For this Texas Edition version, those specifications increase to 100 HP, 72" turning height and 87,000 lbs. of mass.

"Other machine brands did not offer comparable specifications to the MVL-16M Texas Edition, and service is very important to us also, so we were enthusiastic to find this machine offered by Technical Equipment. They have many support resources nearby," said Jason Strader, Paducah's General Manager.

Technical Equipment is a distributor of advanced machine tools and related technology in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. The company provides engineering and support services for manufacturers of precision machined parts in all industry sectors, including aerospace, automotive, defense, electronics, energy, medical and firearms.

Paducah Gear & Machine Co. is an industrial repair and manufacturing facility specializing in gear reducers and backstops. The company's full service offerings include in-house mechanical service, machining and fabrication, as well as customer-site machining and repair work.

"Momentum Machine Tool Company is an American-owned machine tool builder dedicated to producing heavy-duty VTLs and flat bed lathes. The company's executive offices and technical center are in Houston, and it owns a production plant in Taichung, Taiwan. It builds the MVL series in table 49", 63", 78" and 98" table sizes. Even Momentum's basic MVL models have advantages in horsepower, machine mass and maximum table load when compared with similar-sized vertical turning lathes," said a company spokesperson.

Other standard MVL features include:

  • Oversize rams and other major components
  • Full wrap, arc-shaped columns
  • Full length cross rails
  • Hydraulic rail elevation and locking
  • Floor mounted tool changers
  • Single-piece, extended length saddles
  • Oversize spiral-gear table drives
  • Gear reduction on linear axis motors
  • Thrust and radial table bearing pairs
  • FANUC controls.
