Short travel distances, combined with high rapid traverse speeds, substantially reduce time.
Vertical Turning Machines
Vertical lathes have long been recognised for their advantages in the machining of heavy or short workpieces. The latest vertical turret lathes also offer additional benefits in terms of reduced cycle times, due to the rapid workpiece transfer and short traverses that can be achieved by working in this plane. Our top-of-the-range vertical lathes have counter-spindles, allowing for even greater productivity. As with all lathes from our leading manufacturer, Index, the vertical lathes we offer are available with a wide range of configuration options that allow them to adapt precisely to your requirements, ensuring that your cost-per-part is minimised.
