Heavy-Duty Ram Type VTL with Available CAT-60 Spindle

Momentum MVL-10HD heavy-duty VTL

Momentum Machine Tool Company offers the MVL-10HD heavy-duty, ram-type vertical turning lathe (VTL) featuring 49" in swing and a 1,005 mm (39") diameter table.

The MVL-10HD is engineered for heavy metal removal rates with features that include Momentum's signature full-wrap, arc-shaped column, full-length cross rail and single piece saddle, all of which are designed to enhance rigidity and cutting performance. The MVL can be configured so that the ram and tool changer natively (i.e., without intermediate tooling blocks) accept CAPTO, KM, CAT or other standards in capacities up to 60 tools.

The MVL's cross rail extends fully to both sides of the spindle: 645 mm (25") of travel in the negative X direction and 900 mm (35.4") of Z-axis travel. This allows for easy access to probing part diameters and use of left and right inserts on each turning toolholder, effectively doubling tooling capacity.

The standard table on the MVL-10HD is 1,005 mm (39") in diameter and will swing and turn up to 1,250 mm (49"). Maximum turning height is 900 mm (35") and capacity on the table is 4,000 kg (8,800 lbs.).

Weighing in at over 18,000 kg (39,000 lbs.), all structural components on the MVL-10HD, including its base, column and cross rail, are made from the high quality cast iron that is stress relieved for deformation-free performance. All axis ways are of box-type construction, high frequency induction-hardened and Turcite-B coated for wear resistance.

Like the rest of Momentum's range of VTLs, the MVL features a full-wrap, arc-shaped column that fully curves around the table to maximize mass, rigidity and dampening. The full-wrap column also minimizes the distance between the column's box ways and the cutting insert suspended from them. A single piece, extra-long cast iron saddle supports the ram during cutting, providing additional rigidity.

A 55/45 kW (73.7 HP) spindle motor is standard on the MVL-10HD, with a 45/38 kW available as optional. Axes are driven by 7 kW (9.4 HP) servo motors providing 393.7 IPM rapids.

The MVL can be configured so that the ram and tool changer natively accept CAPTO, KM, CAT or other standards. These designs may also replace the horizontal-umbrella rotation style ATC with a vertical chain ATC and a side-arm tool changer instead, reducing floor space and tool change time.
