As part of its growing portfolio of machine tools, Victor Taichung has now introduced the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM CNC horizontal turn-mill with Y-axis and a sub-spindle. An upgrade of Victor Vturn-A20Y, which was only launched in 2021, the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM turn-mill has a belt driven spindle speed of 4 200rpm as standard instead of a built-in speed of 5 000rpm (optional) on the previous model. The sub-spindle speed has been reduced so as to lower the cost of the machine.
Another notable new feature as compared to the Vturn-A20Y is that the Vturn-A200YSCM now has two motors for the milling turret, one for indexing and one for milling, and the swing capacities have also been increased.
Victor Taichung Machinery, one of Taiwan’s leading manufacturers of CNC machine tools and plastic injection moulding machines for the engineering, motor manufacturing and plastics manufacturing industries, recently opened its new US$120 million smart factory, which is also referred to as the Victor Intellectual Factory
The Victor Vturn A-Series of turning centers that are available have now been upgraded with increased structural rigidity on the headstock, box slideways, turret and carriages, making the next generation Vturn A-Series more formidable than ever before.
With the latest technology such as Direct Drive Spindle (DDS) built-in as standard, the A-Series lathes demonstrate the utmost in component surface finish quality and the highest angular accuracy through Victor’s in-house designed and built turret.
From a capacity perspective, the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM offers a swing over the bed of 830mm (previously 720mm) with a 720mm (previously 550mm) swing over the carriage. The compact footprint machine offers a turning capacity of 604mm between centres with a maximum turning diameter of 390mm and a bar capacity of 52mm with 66mm or 75mm being an optional choice for manufacturers bar feeding larger components.
The A200YSCM machine has an X-axis travel of 155+60mm and a Z-axis of 600mm and a Y-axis of 45mm. The spacious work envelope provides flexibility and capacity to suit every machine shop.

The remarkably 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 class leading for a turning center of this size, demonstrating a 7.5/9kW continuous spindle motor with a maximum spindle speed of 4 200rpm that has exceptional torque levels throughout the speed range.
The sub-spindle (E-axis) has a maximum speed of 7 000rpm, 7.5/11kW spindle motor, milling speed of 4 000rpm (6 000rpm optional), milling motor 3.7/5.5kW and a bar capacity of 30mm.
The combination of the powerful high-torque spindles, robust machine structure and stable tooling turret permits unfathomable material removal rates and surface finishes regardless of the materials being processed.
The exciting Victor-A200YSCM turning center is available with a multitude of optional extras to meet the diverse demands of the marketplace. At present models are available with the Fanuc 0i-TF (10.4”) CNC, an upgraded Kitagawa chuck, the Grundfos SPK4-8 or MTH4-40/4 high-pressure coolant system with a larger 330 litre coolant tank, the Renishaw manual tool pre-setter, a barfeed interface, a swing type parts catcher, four addition ‘M’ codes and also an oil skimmer.

For customers that wish to tailor the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM turning center to their specific production needs, the machine can be supplied with either a 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 (66mm or 75mm), gantry loading robot, independent tailstock, bolt mounted turret and a gear hobbing interface.
Whilst all these options can be accommodated to create the perfect long-term solution for your machine shop, it should not be overlooked that the base model of the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM turning center from Victor Taichung is supplied with an impressive list of standard accessories.
These include a hydraulic chuck with soft jaws, programmable tailstock, chip conveyor with cart, air conditioner for the electrical cabinet, fully enclosed splash guarding, hand wheel with remote MPG, tool holders, coolant flush on Z-axis cover, 3-step warning light and the Fanuc CNC control e-books.
Victor VMT-X200 milling and turning center
Victor Taichung have also introduced the multitasking Victor VMT-X200 milling and turning center. Turn/mill technology enables users to complete a workpiece in a single handling. In the area of multi-tasking machining, in the beginning many machine shops initially took a wait-and-see approach to the technology. The combination of milling and turning functions required programmers and operators that were familiar with each type of machining. This has all changed now – the more operations that can be done in a single handling the better.
Victor Taichung launched their multi-tasking milling and turning center VMT-X200 with Y-axis travel 260mm to complete a complex part in one set. The latest Fanuc 0i-TF Plus (type 0) control with 15” screen is mounted on this new model
From a geometry perspective, you will likely turn then mill. A milling machine can hold onto a round part easier than a rotating chuck or lathe can grasp a complex part. However, there are “soft jaws” for turning chucks that can hold complex shapes, so it’s not impossible to mill first and turn second. Typically these kinds of process choices are driven by the part requirements, like which features need the most accuracy. Moving a part from one machine to another means losing some accuracy from feature to feature, so it’s important to consider locating and final part requirements.

Victor Taichung’s new VMT-X200 with twin turning spindles and a swivel milling spindle is designed to complete one part without re-clamping the part to reach for highest machining accuracy with minimum cycle time.

With an 8” chuck and 4 200rpm twin turning spindle, and a 12 000rpm HSK-T63 milling spindle (4+1 axis machining in one setup), the VMT-X200 has a 40 tool magazine to meet increasing demands on small batch or production with high variety.
The maximum turning dimensions are 500mm by 1075mm and the Y-axis travel is 260mm. The turning spindle power is 15kW and the milling spindle power is 22kW. X and Z travels of the upper tool spindle are 635mm and 1 170mm and the roller geared B-axis swivel head for high-rotating speed with high-rigidity has a 240 degree swivel.
Victor Taichung can also offer optional accessories that include a manual or auto tool pre-setter, part catcher, power chuck, high-pressure coolant, barfeed interface, auto-door, tailstock centre and more.
