The right-hand and left-hand versions of the Emco Maier VT 160 and VT 250, when linked with one of three basic conveyor options—oval, meander and crossover-meander designs—provide a complete machining solution for workpieces with diameters of as much as 250 mm, a workpiece weight of 8 kg, and a workpiece height of 150 mm with 30 workpieces (oval) or 50 workpieces (meander). The integration of a cross-over allows the use of different pallets or different workpieces. Each option footprint is only 21 m2.

The VT 160 and VT 250 "Duo" solutions can each perform complete machining of a workpiece (two‑face machining with the op 10 and op 20). The production of two different workpieces is possible (Part A on Machine 1, Part B on Machine 2).

With the VT 250 and 160, the user can opt for different versions. Beyond the basic version without a Y axis, the version with the moving turret axis and driven tools leverages the benefits of complete machining. A multi-function platen is available. It can accommodate additional fixed or driven tools. This also applies to long drills and piercing tools. Also, operators can add a linear measuring system, process monitoring and electronic evaluation to their VT 250/160.
