At the EMO 2013 EMAG will be presenting the VL 2 single-spindle vertical pick-up lathe for the machining of small chucked components. “Shrinking” components and new smaller components present a particularly complex task for the mechanical engineering companies that manufacture them. One kind of machine used to master the task is shown by the turning specialists at EMAG – with the VL 2. This vertical turning machine represents a new platform for automated, high-precision production processes and low component costs in the manufacture of small chucked components.
The EMAG VL2 machine opens up new opportunities for the machining of a wide range of small chucked components. Small gearwheels, planetary gears, sliding sleeves, pump components, synchronizer rings, chain gears or flange components – with a maximum diameter of 100 mm and a length of up to 150 mm – are machined on a vertical pick-up lathe with great efficiency. The machine design focuses on providing a variety of manufacturing technologies for soft and hard machining plus a complete automation system at a very favorable price-performance ratio. When developing the VL 2, EMAG had – right from the start – its eyes fixed firmly on the investment costs for the user and the fact that those costs should be kept as low as possible.
