Victor A26-YCM at MACH 2022

Making its debut appearance at MACH 2022, the Oldham based GM Group will be introducing an extremely robust and flexible range of Victor machine tools. Victor machine tools have an uncompromising reputation for build quality and stability and since becoming the sole UK and Republic of Ireland agent for the Victor range in 2020, the GM Group has witnessed phenomenal growth with the brand.

Now, attendees at the MACH exhibition from the 4th to the 8th of April can visit Stand 619 in Hall 19 to see exactly why the Victor machines are proving so popular with manufacturers in all industry sectors. The Victor range is remarkably diverse, catering for all industry sectors with everything from small to large machine tools with simple or complex machining solutions that can be tailored to the exact needs of the user. The GM Group will be giving show visitors a sample of this product diversity at MACH with the extremely compact and automated Vturn NP20 turning centre with the Easy Way articulated robot loading/unloading system, the high-performance Vcenter AX380 5-axis machining centre and also the Vturn A26-85YCM twin spindle turning centre with Y-axis milling on the tooling turret.

When it comes to turning, the Vturn range from Victor has it all – precision, flexibility and productivity with uncompromising levels of rigidity and stability. The Vturn A26-85YCM twin spindle turning centre will emphasise this at MACH with its Y-axis milling capability and powerful twin spindle configuration for one-hit machining. The Vturn A26-85YCM has a 10 inch chuck with a maximum turning diameter of 351mm whilst a 75mm diameter bar can be pass through the headstock for barfed applications.

The machine provides X-axis travel of 142.5+117.5mm with 850mm in the Z-axis whilst the Y-axis driven tooling unit can traverse +/-55mm. Within this spacious work envelope sits a main spindle that generates 15/22kW power with a spindle speed of 3500rpm – this extremely high level of power for heavy duty cutting is almost equalled by the 11/18.5kW sub-spindle motor. Complementing the power of the main and sub-spindle is an extremely robust and powerful 4 (5.5)kW motor on the driven tooling turret. This high-torque motor drives the 12-station VDI-40/BMT-65 tooling turret at spindle speeds up to 3,000rpm. With class leading power output from the turning spindles and driven tooling unit that are all manufactured in-house by Victor, the Vturn A26-85YCM is extremely well equipped to conduct both heavy duty machining as well as cutting the most challenging materials in the industry with remarkable ease. This power is complemented by a machine base that is considered the most heavy duty in the industry. The combined stability and rigidity of this 7600kg machine not only improves machining performance, but it also enhances tool life, productivity, surface finishes and machine longevity.

Like all machines available in the Victor range from the GM Group, the Vturn A26-85YCM is a completely flexible concept with end users having the facility to select from a range of options. This includes a 12 inch chuck, larger maximum turning diameter, length and through bore, different spindle motor configurations, CNC control units and much more. If you want to see why more manufacturers are opting for the Victor brand from the GM Group, visit Stand 619 in Hall 19 at MACH 2022 from the 4th to the 8th of April to investigate the available solutions from this world-leading brand.
