GM CNC Packs a Punch With Heavy Duty VMC

For manufacturers looking for a heavy duty machining centre that offers a stable platform for high material removal rates that is capable of cutting particularly challenging materials, GM CNC has now introduced the Victor Vcenter G135 vertical machining centre.

Like all machine tools manufactured by Victor, build quality and rigidity is assured. Confirming its credentials beyond that of its competitors in the mid sized VMC market segment is the meehanite casting with a wide base A Frame design, a wide span column, four boxways and screw removers with a boxway width of 145mm and an overall machine weight of 11,500kg. Upon this foundation of unparalleled stability is a 1400 by 700mm table that can accommodate parts up to 2200kg. With unfathomable rigidity and performance, the compact design provides a machine that is built to perform and built to last.

The 3 axis workhorse offers axes travel of 1350 by 700 by 700mm in the X, Y and Z axis with a BT50 spindle taper for maximum material removal rates. The powerful gearhead spindle design generates a power output of 18.5kW with an impressive torque level of 498Nm. Developed, manufactured and built in-house by Victor, the 6000rpm spindle has a gearhead design that retains maximum torque levels throughout the speed range. This makes the Vcenter G135 the perfect choice for machining hard materials and exotic alloys with material removal rates that far exceed that of any other machine in its class. Furthermore, this power and stability enhance precision levels with a platform that also generates surface finishes and component quality that is industry leading.

The Victor Vcenter G135 vertical machining centre has an automatic tool change unit with 24 tool capacity that can accommodate tools with a maximum tool weight of up to 15kg. The axis feed motor on the Vcenter G135 generates 3kW of power on all axes with a rapid feed rate of 20m/min and axis acceleration of 0.28G, which is driven through extremely large 50mm diameter ballscrews to further enhance stability.

As standard, the Victor Vcenter G135 is supplied with the latest FANUC CNC control unit, fully enclosed splash guarding, spindle oil cooler, screw type chip removal, bottom guarding for coolant flushing, rigid tapping, 3 step warning lights, auto power off and levelling pads.

Like every Victor machine that is available from GM CNC, the Vcenter G135 is available with a host of options to meet the exact requirements of the end user. Options on the Vcenter G135 include a 4th and 5th axis interface for increased flexibility, 32 or 40 tool ATC, the industry leading BIG PLUS spindle interface, probing for automatic tool and component measuring. Additional options include through spindle coolant, chip conveyor with cart, air conditioning for the electrical cabinets and linear scales for enhanced precision levels. Customers can also select a table shower, oil skimmer, automatic doors, air and coolant guns and much more.

Quality is built into the DNA of the Victor brand of machine tools; with customers the world over being filled with the confidence that this brand is built to last. The build quality, longevity and performance of Victor machines is unparalleled. The combination of Victor quality and GM CNC’s unwavering commitment to customer service and support gives manufacturers confidence that your spindles will always achieve maximum uptime.
