Generation Of CNC Lathes
To meet the expanding
needs of customers throughout the world, VICTOR has developed the new V Turn Generation of
CNC controlled slant bed lathes.
This new generation incorporates many advances in technology, allowing new developments to
increase productivity, enhance maintance, and quality in performance.
This new generation offers wider choice of machine with increased capacities, and
introduces as an optional item, machine with indexing and full three axes (C zxis
Radical changes have been possible to the headstock and spindle drive, allowing a
simplified structure design with less heat generation at high speed, and in consequence
reduced thermal displacement.
Dependent upon the nodel machines in thier standard form are provided with Victor
conventional 12 or 10 stations turret. Indexing time station to station is 0.8 second.
This reduces idle time and increased productivity. Idle time on each axis has been reduced
by increasing the rapid traverse rates, X=12 meters per minute, Z=15 meters per minute.
Maximum reliability is obtained by utilizing Fanuc CNC Controls, Feed and Spindle Drives
throughout the V Turn Series. A choice of Fanuc O-TC, O-TF, and 15 TEC systems is
availabe. These control systems are mounted in multi-function panel situated at the right
hand side of the machine. Colour coding is used on the panel, switches and buttons to
facilitate ease of operation. Machine malfunctions are detected automatically, and
displayed on the CRT Screen. This aids troubleshooting and fault-finding.
