You Ji is one of the world’s leading builders of large custom CNC vertical lathes. Exceptional engineering capabilities and accuracy make You Ji VTL lathes ideal for a wide range of CNC machining applications, especially projects that involve:
- Large and heavy work pieces that require a crane or automation
- Unbalanced or odd shaped work pieces requiring complex fixturing
- Fragile work pieces that necessitate low clamping pressures
- Complex work pieces
- Work pieces requiring interrupted cuts
Vertical Lathe Features
A CNC vertical lathe is a turning machine in which the worktable is parallel to the ground. This design provides many advantages for machining precision parts. For one thing, VTL lathes use the force of gravity to help secure and stabilize the work piece. The weight of the workpiece is directed straight down into the machine foundation and produces no off-axis loads on the spindle.
This arrangement minimizes the effect of interrupted cuts compared to horizontal lathes while facilitating part handling and increasing the amount of weight the machine can handle, making VTL lathes an excellent choice for large work pieces.
In addition, this vertical alignment also makes fixturing easier and reduces the amount of clamping pressure needed – great for thin and fragile pieces.
CNC vertical lathe features include:
- Chuck capacities extending from 8″ to 315″
- Timken cross-roller high quality bearings to ensure rigidity and accuracy
- Single or dual RAM
- 3 – 5 axis mill/turn
- Inverted spindles
- Fixed or moveable-rail style machines with side heads
- Integrated pallet changers
Available options include a variety of tool changers and Y-axes, along with specialized machines for the production of wheels, bearings and aerospace parts.
