GM CNC unveils heavy-duty machining centre

According to GM CNC,unparalleled stability and rigidity are the foundation blocks of the new VictorVcenter G-series range, which offers high material removal rates for applications where manufacturers are processing particularly challenging materials.

The three-axis G series is available in a trio of sizes to meet diverse demands. Unlike its competitors in the mid-sized VMC market segment, the G-series incorporates a meehanite casting with a wide base A-frame design, a wide span column, four boxways and screw removers with a wide boxway.

Victor’s smaller G105 provides X, Y and Z-axis travel of 1050 x 600 x 600mm,stretching to a spacious 1650 x 850 x 900mm on the largest G165. This freedom of movement is matched by accommodating bed sizes of 1100 x 600mm (G105), 1400 x 700mm (G135) and 1700 x 800mm (G165). Furthermore, the robust nature of the range permits the loading of components up to 1200, 2200 and 2500kg respectively.

Common features on all three machines include a powerful gearhead spindle design that generates a power output of 18.5 kW with a torque level of 498Nm. Developed, manufactured and built in-house by Victor, the 6000rpm gearhead design spindle retains maximum torque levels throughout the speed range. Thisfactor makes the Vcenter series a good choice for machining hard materials and exotic alloys with high material removal rates. In addition, the G-series incorporates a Big-Plus BBT-50 spindle taper that guarantees dual face and taper spindle contact.

The Victor Vcenter has an automatic tool change unit with 24-tool capacity and the option for 32 or 40 tool positions; all positions can accommodate tools up to 15kg.
