The Victor Vturn-26HD has long been a favoured option among manufacturers looking for a mid-sized turning centre that delivers power, precision and uncompromising levels of reliability. Now, Victor CNC has added to this line with the arrival of the new Vturn-S26 (CM).
Complementing the existing Vturn-26 HD & VT-A26CM, the new arrival has been re-engineered to provide a host of new features that include the option of a servo-powered C-axis to offer driven tooling stations. This new facility gives end users the option of the cost-effective 2-axis Vturn-26HD workhorse or the equally cost-effective, more flexible 3-axis Vturn-S26.
The foundation for the new Vturn-S26 is a large sturdy single-piece slant-bed. The single-piece construction eliminates the possibility of coolant leakage whilst the 30° design lowers the centre of gravity to enhance rigidity and performance. In addition, this innovative new configuration provides a large swing diameter that enables end-users to load larger billets. The performance of the new Vturn-S26 is encapsulated in its 18/24m/minute rapid feed rates and high thrust force of 1441kgf that reduces chip-to-chip times and ensures that productivity levels are optimised.
Further contributing to the productivity level of the Vturn-S26 is the 12 station live tooling turret. The BMT-65 turret has an indexing time of just 0.8 seconds whilst the powerful 4.5kW motor delivers live tooling speeds of 4,000rpm with high levels of torque, rigidity and repeatability generated from Victor Taichung’s own turret configuration.
Despite its nimble and productive performance, the Vturn offers a high spindle output of 22kW with 574Nm which permits heavy-duty cutting under the most challenging conditions and materials. Surface finishes and tool life are optimised with the high rigidity and machine stability that are the hallmark of the Victor CNC brand. The machine has a weight of 6,130kg, thanks to the Meehanite casting and heavy-duty boxways that are 64 and 80mm in X and Z respectively.
The latest addition to the Victor CNC stable has an increased swing over the bed of 600mm compared to the 520mm on previous Vturn-26HD models and this increases the maximum turning diameter from 410 to 430mm. The new machine also incorporates the latest Fanuc 0iTF CNC control with a large 10.4 inch colour screen display and intuitive manual guide, hydraulic chuck, programmable tailstock, chip conveyor, handwheel, tool-holders, coolant flush on Z-axis cover and a three-step warning light.

We sincerely invite you to visit our stall for more information about our Vertical Machining Centers and vertical lathes.
Victor CNC’s Vcenter-AX800, AX800II and the AX800 Aero 320 are for 5-axis machining of large parts up to 1.2 metres diameter.
The Vcenter AX800 5 Axis Machining Center has a swivelling head B-axis and a 25rpm C-axis table located within the fixed table, which can be clamped to resist 3 433 Nm for heavy duty machining. The B-axis has a Hirth coupling that will rotate at increments of 1° and offers precision and repeatability. Both rotary axes have a roller-cam drive to deliver “unparalleled rigidity and stiffness”, while shortening cycle times, when compared to conventional worm gear mechanisms.
The rotary table has a diameter of 800mm, a capacity of 1 200 kilograms and axis travels are 1 600 by 700 by 600mm in the XYZ axes.
The AX800II boasts a larger capacity and is able to machine parts up to 1 200mm as opposed to 1 000mm. This is achieved by moving the C-axis rotary table forward by 100mm. The machining height is 300mm and the machine footprint remains the same.
For complex components, especially thin-walled ones, there is the AX800 Aero 320. The C-axis that is on the standard AX800 and AX800II models has been replaced by twin-rotary tables (A and C-axis). Incorporating synchronous control technology, precision machining of extremely delicate and thin walled parts, such as aerospace engine and turbine components, as well as structural aerospace parts, is possible.
This addition to the AX800 range incorporates an HSK-A63 spindle configuration with a table diameter of 320mm, plus an adjustable span between the tables.
The machine uses a 31i-B5 CNC control unit, but Heidenhain TNC-640 is an alternative across all machines.
Other equipment takes in through-spindle coolant of from 20 to 70 bar, a variety of swarf conveyor systems, hydraulic or pneumatic ports on the rotary table, linear scales and angular encoders, automatic tool length measurement, automatic part measuring, along with additional options that can be specified that include oil hole coolant supply, table shower system, spindle configuration and automatic doors.
Victor Taichung Machinery’s Vcenter-A series of Vertical Machining Centers accommodate both heavy cutting at low rpm and high speed machining.
The VMCs have high-damping, rigid guideways. Ballscrew holders are directly casted to increase rigidity and strength, ensuring constant support for the ballscrews over the machine’s life. Large-diameter ballscrews measuring 1.77" as well as 1.77"-wide linear guides ensure stiffness during machining. Direct-coupling servo motors eliminate motor backlash and noise caused by misalignment.
Directly coupled spindles with two types of high-torque spindle motors can mill steel and aluminum. The machines use oil-air lubrication with a filtration system for spindle bearings, and an air dryer further ensures air quality and service life, the company says.
Aiming at hot issue “Industry 4.0”, Victor Taichung Machinery will present 6 unmanned cells including 6 robots with 10 off CNC machines and 2 off PIM machines at coming TMTS show (held in Taichung) for her integrating capability.
We hereby sincerely invite you to visit our booth 3A312 at Greater Taichung International Expo Center from 23 - 27 November, 2016.
Victor Taichung Machinery Works Co expects its new "smart factory" to generate annual revenue of NT$6 billion (US$189 million) after 2018, company chairman Bert Huang told reporters at a forum held by the Ministry of Economic Affairs yesterday.
"In the long term, we expect the smart factory to generate sales of more than NT$10 billion," Huang said.
The 62-year-old machine tool manufacturer said it would invest NT$3.5 billion on its smart factory in Taichung, with construction due to be completed in 2018.
The facility with four production lines, which will also serve as the company’s headquarters, spans nearly 3.1 hectares at the Taichung Gateway Park.
By deploying sensors and other equipment, Victor Taichung hopes to optimize manufacturing efficiency through "big data" analysis.
Construction of the factory began in June, Huang said, adding that the company had set up a smart production line at its existing plant to prepare for the transition.
Instead of relying on imports, Victor Taichung plans to purchase most of its equipment for the new plant from local suppliers, including automated storage systems and robotic arms, hoping to stimulate local business opportunities in the smart machinery sector.
As the home to many machine manufacturers, Taichung is now embracing the development of smart factories, an industry-wide shift, Taichung City Government data showed.
More than 300,000 people are employed by machine makers in Taichung, forming an industry cluster with an annual production value of NT$900 billion, the data showed.
The government plans to transform the region into a smart machinery capital as part of President Tsai Ing-wen’s initiative to focus on five innovative industries to stimulate economic growth.
In July, the Executive Yuan approved a plan for a series of hardware upgrades at factories in Taichung, aiming to create a friendly environment that turns Taichung into the hub of smart machinery.
The Taichung City Government is planning to acquire land to build a smart machinery innovation center at the Taichung Gateway Park, an official said yesterday.
The local government hopes to introduce global industrial groups to the center, such as Siemens AG, Asea Brown Boveri Ltd and Mitsubishi Group.
