The vertical lathe

THE VERTICAL LATHE (V-SERIES) – SIMPLY INGENIOUS!

Due to the integrated and fast handling gripper, the Schuster VD20 reduces the loading and unloading times with high precision in comparison with standard pick-up solutions. Furthermore, additional operations such as deburring, workpiece turning, measuring, and testing can be carried out during downtime through the handling system.

V-Series – The compact concept

VD20 – options are selectable!

Currently, there is a new line of thought occurring in cutting manufacturing, in particular regarding materials that are difficult to cut. With increased coolant pressure, materials such as: titanium, Inconel, or duplex steels are machined. With our high-pressure package (the package includes specially sealed turret and cooling unit with belt filter), we give you the ability to do this as efficiently as possible.

Here are a few assembly examples:

VD20 DOUBLE SPINDLE MACHINE

VD20 Trio triplex machine

VD20 DOUBLE SPINDLE MACHINE

As a double spindle cell, our VD20 twin is used in standard twin machining. The VD20 is used for the 2-sided machining.

  • Components with a diameter of up to 200 mm can be fed and discharged centrally between the two cells.
  • The loading and unloading as well as the workpiece turning and transfer function is completed using a handling gripper.
  • The identical processing on the VD20 twin is processed asynchronously on both spindles.

VD20 Trio triplex machine

Our V20 trio is used for 2-sided complete machining, with very different cycle times between the first and second sides, or complex additional options.

Due to the very fast and simple handling of components, time-consuming operations can be decomposed and distributed to the third module, resulting in a homogeneous total throughput time. Even downstream operations, which cannot be accommodated in classic 2-sided machining and would result in a complex further machining process, are economically processed in the third module and in a single flow.

The entire unit is controlled via a control unit with up to two operating panels.
