GM Group shows Victor turning machines

Exhibiting for the first time at the MACH 2022 exhibition last month, the GM Group took the opportunity to introduce the Victor Vturn-A20YCM and Vturn-S26/60CM single-spindle turning centres.

The Vturn A20-YCM offers Y-axis milling capability and an 8” chuck with a swing-over-bed of 700 mm, while a 52 mm diameter bar can pass through the headstock for bar-feeding applications. The machine provides X-axis travel of 150+35 mm with 600 mm in the Z axis and a Y-axis driven tooling unit that can traverse ±45 mm.

Within this spacious work envelope sits a main spindle that generates 11/18.5 kW of power with a spindle speed of 5000 rpm. Complementing the power of the spindle is a 4.5 kW motor on the driven tooling turret. This high-torque motor drives the 12-station BMT-55 tooling turret at spindle speeds up to 4000 rpm. Options include a FANUC 0i-TF CNC control, 10.4” colour display, high-pressure coolant system, part catcher, oil skimmer, programmable tailstock and more.

Also on the stand at MACH was the Victor Vturn-S26/60CM. With a 600 mm swing-over-bed and 640 mm between centres, the 6230 kg machine has a spacious work area and a compact footprint. Furthermore, with a 12-position live tooling station that can drive the 25 mm maximum tool diameter at 6000 rpm with its high torque 4.5 kW motor, the milling flexibility of the Vturn-S26/60CM facilitates productive one-hit machining.

With a bar capacity of 75 mm through the drawbar, 640 mm between centres and a maximum turning diameter of 420 mm, the Vturn-S26/60CM is suitable for both one-off components and production runs of small to medium sized parts. Like the Vturn A20-YCM, the Victor Vturn-S26/60CM is available with an extensive list of optional extras.
