GM CNC introduces latest addition to turning line-up

As part of its growing portfolio of machine tools, GM CNC has now introduced the Victor Vturn-A20Y turning centre.

The Victor Vturn A-Series of turning centres has now been upgraded with increased structural rigidity on the headstock, box slideways, turret and carriages. With the latest technology such as Direct Drive Spindle (DDS) built-in as standard, the A-series lathes offer excellent surface finish quality and accuracy through Victor’s in-house designed and built turret.

From a capacity perspective, the Victor Vturn-A20Y offers a swing over the bed of 700mm with a 550mm swing over the carriage. The compact footprint machine provides a turning capacity of 630mm between centres with a maximum turning diameter of 390mm, and a bar capacity of 52mm with 66 or 75mm being an optional choice for manufacturers bar feeding larger components. The YSCM option machine has an X-axis of 150+35mm and a Z-axis of 600mm. The spacious work envelope provides flexibility and capacity to suit every machine shop.

The rigid machine base has an equally robust Victor servo driven VDI or BMT tooling turret option with 12 tool positions that can accommodate tool shanks up to 20mm. The power of the Victor spindle motor is said to be class leading for a turning centre of this size, demonstrating an 11/18.5kW continuous spindle motor with a maximum spindle speed of 5,000rpm that has high torque levels throughout the speed range. The combination of the spindle, robust machine structure and stable tooling turret permits high material removal rates and surface finishes regardless of the materials being processed.

The Vturn-A20Y turning centre is available with a multitude of optional extras to meet the diverse demands of the marketplace. At present, GM CNC has stock models available with the AICC-2 for Fanuc 0i-T (10.4") CNC, an upgraded Kitagawa chuck, the Grundfos SPK4-8 or MTH4-40/4 high pressure coolant system, the Renishaw manual tool presetter, a bar feed interface, a swing type parts catcher, four addition 'M' codes and also an oil skimmer.

For customers needing to customise the turning centre to their specific production needs, the machine can be supplied with either manual or automatic Renishaw tool pre-setter, part catcher, auto door opening, bar feed interface, air blast system, high-pressure coolant, oil skimmer, larger spindle bore (66 or 75mm), gantry loading robot, independent tailstock, bolt mounted turret, gear hobbing interface and of course the option of a sub-spindle.

The accessory list that comes with the machine as standard is equally impressive. These include a hydraulic chuck with soft jaws, programmable tailstock, chip conveyor with cart, air conditioner for the electrical cabinet, fully enclosed splash guarding, handwheel with remote MPG, toolholders, coolant flush on Z-axis cover, 3-step warning light and Fanuc CNC control e-books.
