Now available from Oldham-based GM CNC Ltd
is the new Victor Vturn-A20Y turning centre which, compared with earlier Vturn A-series machines, offers increased structural rigidity of the headstock, box slideways, turret and carriages — and a direct-drive spindle as standard, as well as Victor’s in-house designed and built turret.
The machine features a swing over the bed of 700mm, a swing over the carriage of 550mm, 630mm between centres, a maximum turning diameter of 390mm and a bar capacity of 52mm (with 66 or 75mm being options). The YSCM option offers ‘an X axis of 150+35mm on and a Z axis of 600mm’.
The Victor servo-driven tooling turret (VDI or BMT) has 12 tool positions and can accommodate tool shanks up to 20mm in diameter, while the 11/18.5kW spindle has a maximum speed of 5,000rev/min and offers ‘high torque levels throughout the speed range’.
The Vturn-A20Y is available with a variety of optional extras, and GM CNC has stock models available with the AICC-2 look-ahead algorithms for Fanuc 0i-T CNC, an upgraded Kitagawa chuck, Grundfos SPK4-8 or MTH4-40/4 high-pressure coolant systems, Renishaw manual tool pre-setter, a bar feed interface, a swing type parts catcher, and an oil skimmer.
That said, among the many options for the Vturn-A20Y turning centre are either manual or automatic Renishaw tool pre-setter, part catcher, automatic door opening, bar-feeder interface, air-blast system, high-pressure coolant, oil skimmer, gantry loading robot, gear hobbing interface and a sub-spindle.
