Victor Vturn-45CV horizontal turning centre with VDI-50 live turret

A horizontal turning centre with live turret designed for fast tool indexing.

Victor Taichung Machinery Works now offers the Vturn-45CV horizontal turning centre with VDI-50 live turret. According to the company, a one piece 2 185mm centre slant bed lathe with homogenous Meehanite casting is designed to distribute stress throughout the structure. “To ensure perfect alignment in the machine structure, the bed is machined in a single set-up on a large five-face machining centre,” said a company spokesperson.


According to the company, the machine’s built-in 44kW spindle (DDS – Direct Drive Spindle) with dual winding spindle motor offers 27% more torque output at low spindle speed than a conventional belt-driven spindle. A 2-step gearbox is included as standard with 15-inch Kitagawa chuck.

Spindle oil cooler is included as standard to prolong bearing service life. “High volume coolant flush onto the Z-axis cover helps to reduce the chip built up inside the machine,” said the spokesperson.

The machine’s VDI-50 Servo driving turret is engineered and manufactured by Victor Taichung. “This face mounted 12-station turret allows for fast tool indexing of 0.3 seconds (tool to tool),” said the spokesperson. “A carriage supports the heavy turret steadily for reliable and continuous turning.”
