Victor Taichung presents the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM horizontal CNC turner with Y-axis and counter spindle and the VMT-X200 multitasking milling and turning center

As part of its growing portfolio of machine tools, Victor Taichung has now introduced the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM CNC horizontal milling machine with Y axis and a sub spindle. An upgrade of the Victor Vturn-A20Y, which was only launched in 2021, the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM turner-mill has a belt-driven spindle speed of 4,200 rpm as standard instead of a built-in speed of 5,000 rpm (optional) on the previous one. model. The counter spindle speed has been reduced in order to reduce the cost of the machine.

Another notable change from 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 slewing capabilities have also been increased.

Victor Taichung Machinery, one of Taiwan’s leading manufacturers of CNC machine tools and plastic injection molding machines for the engineering, engine manufacturing and plastics manufacturing industries, recently opened its new US$120 million intelligent factory, also called Victor Intellectual Factory.

The available Victor Vturn A-Series turning centers have now been improved with increased structural rigidity on the headstock, bed slides, turret and carriages, making the next generation Vturn A-Series more formidable than ever.

With the latest technologies such as the Direct Drive Spindle (DDS) integrated as standard, the A-Series lathes demonstrate the highest quality component surface finish and highest angular accuracy thanks to the turret designed and built in-house by Viktor.

From a capacity standpoint, the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM offers 830mm (previously 720mm) above bed swing with 720mm (previously 550mm) above carriage swing. The compact footprint machine offers a turning capacity of 604mm between centers with a maximum turning diameter of 390mm and a bar capacity of 52mm, 66mm or 75mm being an optional choice for manufacturers supplying larger components big.

The A200YSCM machine has a travel on the X axis of 155 + 60 mm and a Z axis of 600 mm and a Y axis of 45 mm. The spacious work envelope provides flexibility and capacity to fit every machine shop.

The speed of the counter spindle has been reduced in order to reduce the cost of the machine

The remarkably rigid machine base features an equally robust Victor servo-controlled VDI or BMT tooling turret option with 12 tool positions that can accommodate tool shanks up to 20mm. Victor spindle motor power is best in class for a turning center of this size, demonstrating a 7.5/9 kW continuous spindle motor with a maximum spindle speed of 4,200 rpm that has exceptional torque levels across the entire speed range.

The counter spindle (E-axis) has a maximum speed of 7000 rpm, a spindle motor of 7.5/11 kW, a milling speed of 4000 rpm (6000 rpm optional) , a 3.7/5.5 kW milling motor and a 30 mm bar capacity.

The combination of powerful, high-torque spindles, a robust machine structure, and a stable tooling turret results in unfathomable material removal rates and surface finishes, regardless of the materials being processed.

The exciting Victor-A200YSCM turning center is available with a host of additional options to meet diverse market demands. Currently, models are available with Fanuc 0i-TF (10.4″) CNC, upgraded Kitagawa chuck, Grundfos SPK4-8 or MTH4-40/4 high-pressure coolant system with water tank. larger 330 liter sprinkler, Renishaw hand tool pre-setter, bar feed interface, oscillating type parts catcher, four additional ‘M’ codes and also an oil skimmer.

Another notable change from 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 slewing capabilities have also been increased.

For customers who wish to adapt the Victor Vturn-A200YSCM turning center to their specific production needs, the machine can be supplied with manual or automatic Renishaw tool presetter, part catcher, automatic door opener, interface bar feed, an air blast system, high pressure coolant, oil skimmer, larger spindle bore (66mm or 75mm), gantry loading robot, independent tailstock, mounted turret on bolt and gear cutting interface.

While all of these options can be tailored to create the perfect long-term solution for your machine shop, keep in mind that the base model Victor Taichung Vturn-A200YSCM Turning Center comes with an impressive list of standard accessories.

These include a hydraulic soft jaw chuck, programmable tailstock, chip conveyor with carriage, air conditioner for the electrical cabinet, fully enclosed splash guard, a handwheel with remote MPG, tool holders, coolant on the Z axis cover, 3-step warning light and Fanuc CNC control e-books.

Victor VMT-X200 Milling and Turning Center
Victor Taichung also presented the Victor VMT-X200 multitasking milling and turning center. Turn/mill technology allows users to complete a part in one operation. In the field of multi-tasking machining, many machine shops initially took a wait-and-see approach to technology. Combining milling and turning functions required programmers and operators familiar with each type of machining. Everything has changed now – the more operations that can be performed in one manipulation, the better.

Victor Taichung launched his VMT-X200 multi-task milling and turning center with 260mm Y-axis travel to make a complex part in one set. The latest Fanuc 0i-TF Plus (type 0) control with display 15″ is mounted on this new model

Geometrically, you’ll probably turn and then mill. A milling machine can hold a round part more easily than a rotary chuck or lathe can grip 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 later. Typically, these types of process choices are driven by part requirements, such as which features require the most precision. Moving a part from one machine to another means a loss of precision from one function to another. It is therefore important to consider the location and the final requirements of the room.

Victor Taichung’s new VMT-X200 with two turning spindles and one swivel milling spindle is designed to finish a part without constricting the part to achieve the highest machining accuracy with minimum cycle time.

With an 8″ chuck and 4,200 rpm twin turning spindle, and a 12,000 rpm HSK-T63 milling spindle (4+1 axis machining in one setup), the VMT-X200 has a magazine of 40 tools to meet increasing demands on small batches or production with a large variety.

The maximum turning dimensions are 500mm by 1075mm and the Y axis stroke is 260mm. The turning spindle power is 15kW and the milling spindle power is 22kW. The tool’s upper spindle X and Z travels are 635mm and 1170mm and the roller gear B-axis swivel head for high rotational speed with high rigidity has 240 degree swivel .

Victor Taichung can also offer optional accessories which include manual or automatic tool presetter, piece catcher, electric chuck, high pressure coolant, bar feed interface, automatic door, tailstock center and more.
