The VTC-805E (Vertical Traveling Column) Machining Center is designed with increased Y-axis stroke, a long bed/table size, high spindle speed and torque, and SmoothG CNC control for efficient, powerful machining. The VTC-805E provides an extended Y-axis travel of 32-in as an alternative to a bridge-style machine. With an optional center partition, it is possible to transform the VTC-805E's table into two separate work areas. The machine can be used to process parts on one side while operators load/unload parts on the other. A turret-style magazine accommodates 40 tools, and the spindle is designed to easily tackle a wide variety of materials including titanium, aluminum, steel and cast iron. The SmoothG CNC makes it easy to generate programs for off-centerline machining as well as angled drilling, milling, and tapping operations. Additional features included a tilting CNC panel, multi-touch control screen, and a SD card for program data storage.
