VT 260 new with Fanuc 31i and chip ejection at the rear side.The new EMCO VERTICAL VT 260: Vertical Turning machine with Fanuc 31i and chip ejection at the rear side, integrated automation in European quality. At the AMB in Stuttgart EMCO is going to present the maximum version of the EMCO Vertical VT 260 with driven tools, Y axis and hollow spindle drive.

Thus EMCO - in cooperation with EMCO Magdeburg - enlarges its product range with additional versions of the VT 260: VT 260 (ISM) with hollow spindle and without driven tools, VT 260 M (ISM) with driven tools and hollow spindle drive and the VT 260 MY (ISM) with a Y axis on top. Equipped with a hollow spindle drive instead of a belt drive all the versions perform with a drive power of 29 kW. The VT 260 MY with Y axis offers a travel of 180(+/-90) mm and can stand any competition - not only in regard to the price.

Designed for heavy-duty machining the VT 260 is equipped with an integrated self-loading system and even though, it gets along with a small foot print. High productivity, high repeat accuracy and good operability are the convincing product features that characterize this machine. 
The turning machine has an integrated pick-up system and self loads chuck parts with a diameter of up to 260 mm, thus saving the user the additional costs and programming time involved with the use of an automated unit. It is no longer necessary to align the automated unit with the machine causing downtime.


 The VT 260 is also supplied as standard with a conveyor belt system in which customers can store up to 24 workpieces. The conveyor belt moves the workpieces into the pick-up position. The vertical, high-power spindle makes turning, drilling and threading operations easy. The rigid machine structure creates the requirements for substantial cutting performance in serial production and is ideally suited for fine- and hard machining.
Equipped with specially large roller guides the new machine is predominantly suited for work on short and heavy workpieces with a large diameter. The large guide rails and guide shoe guarantee excellent stability even at  high loads.


On the tool turret 12 tools with the VDI40 shank can be mounted. The basic machine also includes a coolant device and a chip conveyor, which ensures optimal chip removal.


The new VT 260 is also ideally equipped from a control perspective: The new Fanuc 31i with chip ejection at the rear side as well as the Sinumerik 828D from Siemens with chip conveyor on the right or left side, depending on which side the automation is situated, are available. Optionally an upgrade to Siemens 840D sl is available.

•    Simple parts programming through fixed cycles and customer macros
•    MANUAL GUIDE i provides workshop oriented programming
•    Easy operation through a user-friendly graphics display for visual parts program checks
•    Extensive help functions
