The VL 2 vertical turning machine is a universal production tool that has a
small footprint and an advantageous price-performance ratio. It also includes automatic loading and unloading of the workpieces. The workpieces are transported using O-automation, with the pick-up principle being used to load and unload the VL 2. Workpieces are loaded directly into the carrier prisms or, where necessary, into workpiece holders inserted into the prisms. A measuring probe located outside the machining area adds an automatic, in-process quality assurance operation to the cycle, with the measurements taken between finish-machining point and workpiece removal.
