Index time for the 12-station universal VDI-40 turret top plate is 0.78 seconds to an adjacent station, the company says. The non-rising turret index is achieved using a brushless servomotor, and the top plate locks into position using a three-piece curvy coupling. The live tooling/C-axis option is said to eliminate many secondary milling machine operations and reduces additional part handling and setup cost, according to the company. Through-tool coolant and headwall coolant capability is standard and can accommodate either water- or oil-based coolant.

Linear guideways and ballscrews are used for X- and Z-axis motions, which is said to provide added stiffness, dampening and a surface contact area to ensure a stiff and durable machine, the company says. Rapid traverse rates for the X and Z axes are 1,181 ipm (30 mpm). Maximum X-axis travel is 10.7" (272 mm) and maximum Z-axis travel is 23.6" (600 mm).

The 30-degree slant-bed machine base is said to provide rigidity and durability. The 4,850-lb (2020-kg) machine base is constructed from cast iron that is said to contribute to overall stability, rigidity and machining capabilities.
