Manual VTL with Servo Ram

KNUTH Machine Tools USA offers its VDM S Series Vertical Lathe, an expansive range of conventional vertical lathes in seven different sizes from 31.5" to 102" swing. They are designed for use in many industries that may need to replace aging vertical lathes that are expensive to rebuild and difficult to repair.

The VDM S vertical lathes offer modern, conventional solutions for machining large workpiece diameters and heavy workpiece weights up to 11 tons. These lathes feature heavy-duty construction with massive headstock, heavy machine bed, wide box ways and servo motor technology.

Each machine is equipped for O.D./I.D. turning and features a vertical ram with a choice of either a 4-station square tool post or 5-position turret, plus a horizontal side ram with four-position tool holder. The S model is equipped with a servo drive for the vertical ram, allowing powerful infinitely variable feed of the vertical ram.

An inverter-controlled turntable, with high torque and up to 50 HP motor, provides infinitely variable speeds in four gear ranges from 1.2 RPM to 315 RPM. A new stainless steel control panel with a 3-axis digital readout includes spindle speed display.

Optionally, the VDM S is now available with extended columns, full enclosures, turntable enclosures and chip conveyors.
