Two separate machining areas ensure maximum flexibility in production
Be it as a “single-machine solution” for OP 10 and OP 20 or as a TWIN-process turning center for OP 10 and OP 10—the most varied production scenarios can be modeled with the VL 5 DUO dual-spindle machine.
The mirrored machining areas each have their own working spindle. With an output of up to 34.1 kW and a torque of up to 593 Nm (at 40% duty cycle), these spindles have adequate power for fast and precise machining. Moreover, each machining area is equipped with a tool turret including twelve tool posts (with either VDI 40 or BMT 55 interface), which can be loaded with driven tools and a Y-axis in addition to the turning tools.
VL 5 TWIN turning center: Built-in quality
The machine base of the VL 5 DUO dual-spindle turning center is cast from MINERALIT®—a polymer concrete with optimal vibration-damping properties. All production units, such as spindle and tool turret, are fastened to this machine base with maximum stability. Furthermore, there are size 45 recirculating roller guide rails as well as a direct distance measuring system in all linear axes. This guarantees the VL 5 DUO’s highest positioning, repeat and long-term accuracy. If required, a measuring probe can also be integrated in the machine, which enables quick component measurement between the time that components are loaded and unloaded.
