IMTS PRODUCTS :: 71 Vertical Turning Machine Built for Making Gear Wheels Emag LLC | South Building, Level 3, Booth 339436 Emag's VL 3 Duo is a twin-spindle, vertical pick-up turning ma- chine used for large-scale production of gear wheels and other gearbox components. The machine is designed for compactness and productivity, and has a footprint of 13 m 2 (140 ft 2 ). It accom- modates parts ranging to 150 mm (2") in diameter. The VL 3 Duo can be fitted with the company's TrackMotion automation system, which consists of a track, the company's TransLift NC gripper that runs on the track, and a raw parts storage unit. The system installs directly behind the ma- chining areas of the turning machine. The machine has a parts buffer and a pick-up spindle in each machining area. The automation system loads the individ- ual part pallets on the parts buffer as they shuttle between the loading position near the machining area and the rear section of the machine. From there, the work- ing spindle takes the raw part, transports it into the relevant machining area and places the part back onto the appropriate pallet after it has been machined. Imme- diately next to it, the subsequent part is waiting to be picked up by the spindle, so that only a few seconds pass until the next part is being machined. Each machining area has its own work- ing spindle with a power rating of up to 18.1 kW and torque of up to 142 Nm. In addition, each machining area has a tool turret with twelve tool positions that can be fitted with turning tools or driven tools and fitted with an additional Y axis. // OD Grooving // OD Grooving on rotary transfer machines // ID Grooving // ID Turning // Form Drilling // Shave tools // Skiving // Polygon Turning // Broaching of Serration // OD Whirling // ID Whirling // Selector system Available SCHWANOG Tooling Systems: PRECISE, QUICK = EFFICIENT!
