Victor machine tools are renowned for their build quality and stability, and at stand 619 in Hall 19 from April 4-8, 2022, visitors to the Mach exhibition will be able to see the benefits of these tools firsthand. The Victor range is diverse and covers all industry segments with everything from small to large machine tools with simple or complex machining solutions that can be tailored to the needs of the user.

At the Birmingham NEC, the GM Group will give show visitors a taste of this diversity with the Vcenter AX380 high-performance 5-axis machining center appearing alongside the compact, automated Vturn NP20 turning center with the loading system/ Easy Way articulated robot unloading as well as the Vturn A26-85YCM twin-spindle turning center with Y-axis milling on the tool turret.

For manufacturers looking for a new high-performance machining center designed for productivity and precision on a rigid platform that delivers long-lasting performance, GM invites engineers to take a closer look at the 5-Axis Machining Center Vcenter AX380. The Vcenter AX380 offers great flexibility, incorporating a 380 mm diameter A+C axis trunnion-type rotary table and being able to facilitate 5-axis machining of large parts up to 200 kg thanks to its 700 by 500 by 540 mm X , Y and Z axis travel. For manufacturers looking for a solution to machine larger components, the Vcenter series is also available with the larger AX630 and AX800 variants.

The Vcenter AX380 has rigidity and precision built into every aspect of the machine, something that is characterized by the A+C trunnion-type tilt table that features an integrated zero-backlash roller cam mechanism that sits on the machine base to maximize rigidity. The A axis can rotate up to 33 rpm with a torque of 2452 Nm while the C axis rotation is capable of 40 rpm at 2158 Nm.

The compact powerhouse comes standard with the powerful Fanuc 0i-MF CNC control unit which steers tools around the work envelope with high precision and speed. Designed to gallop around this work area, a high-speed 12,000 rpm spindle (15,000 rpm optional) with the famous BIG Plus BBT-40 interface which increases the clamping rigidity of the tool. The high-speed spindle is powered by an 11/15/18.5 kW continuous spindle motor that generates exceptional levels of torque for intensive cutting of difficult materials with impressive material removal rates.

The stable machine platform provides high surface finishing qualities. Pins are manufactured in-house by Victor and each pin has a unique ID code to facilitate future service needs and records. Supplied with up to 30 tools via a two arm type quick change barrel, customers can also select the machine with the option of 40, 48 or 60 tool positions.

As standard the AX380 incorporates a spindle oil cooler, fully enclosed splash guard, rigid tapping facility, remote MPG handwheel, hand tools and tool box, integrated work light , an automatic stop system, leveling pads and a screw chip removal. system.

From a flexibility standpoint, Mach visitors can specify the Vcenter AX380 to meet bespoke requirements. This includes the option of a chip conveyor with trolley, spindle coolant from 20 to 70 bar, linear scales/angle encoders for accuracy levels of 0.005 mm over the entire stroke of the machine, automatic measurement of the length of tool, automatic part measurement, HSK-A63 interface as well as a selection of control units including Fanuc 0i, 32i and 31i control units or Heidenhain 640 control units.
