Victor Vturn-NP16 turning center is robust but compact

The robust Vturn-NP16 turning centre boasts a compact footprint of just 1 488mm in length by 1 956mm wide, and has a height of 1 775mm, so even the most compact machine shop can now benefit from the productivity, rigidity, precision and longevity of a Victor CNC machine tool. Heavy stock removal and highly productive machining of difficult-to-process materials are the machine’s forte.

Of one-piece slantbed design, it has a chip disposal system at the rear of the machine to minimise the footprint. The compact turning center has Z axis travel of 250mm, a 570mm diameter swing-over-bed and a 260mm maximum turning diameter. Spindle power is 11kW, speed 6 000rpm, and there’s a 12-live-position station servo-driven tool turret, plus an option of a 12-position, C-axis BMT-45 milling turret for single-hit machining of complex components. Driven tool power is 2.2kW.

As standard, the new Vturn-NP16 is supplied with a three-step warning light, coolant flush on the Z-axis cover, toolholders, fully enclosed guarding and a hydraulic 6-in chuck with soft jaws and a Fanuc 0i-TF CNC control system having Manual Guide I System that offers ease of programming.

The Vturn-NP16 turning center is a machine said to be easily mastered by subcontractors that are entry-level CNC users, whilst more experienced machinists can take full advantage of the capability and rigidity characteristics of the machine.

The machine has the following options: manual tailstock with power quill, manual or auto tool pre-setter, part catcher, oil skimmer, chip conveyor, air conditioned cabinets, high pressure coolant, bar feed interface, air blast, oil mist collector, auto-doors, C-axis and complete robotic automation.

For flexible automated production, Victor CNC can integrate the EWR-03 articulated robot system that can tackle parts weighing 3 kilograms of dimensions up to 120mm diameter. Part loading/unloading time of just seven seconds.

For parts beyond 3 kilogram that require automation, Victor CNC can integrate a gantry-type robot system that can efficiently feed two turning centres to improve productivity rates whilst minimising floor space requirements. Part changeover time is less than 15 seconds, which includes door open/close cycle.
