High Rigidity

Powerful, high torque spindle for higher productivity

Spindle output :18.5 kW / 11 kW (10% ED /cont.rating)

BT No.40, 12000 min-1(rpm) spindle

The 12000 min-1 (rpm) spindle can perform heavy duty machining of steel as well as high speed machining of aluminum with small diameter tools for reduced cutting time.

High accuracy machining can be performed with minimum heat generation by the spindle with ceramic ball spindle bearings.

Higher Accuracy

Ai Thermal Shield

New algorithms automatically determine the amount of compensation to be automatically applied according to changes in the temperature to ensure even higher machining accuracy. Ai Thermal Shield is available with the MAZATROL SmoothG CNC control.

Tool length measurement

Tool length measurement

Tool length measurement & tool breakage detection (Option)

Tool length is automatically measured and registered in CNC system. Tool breakage can be detected during automatic operation. 

Small diameter tools which could not be measured by conventional measurement system can now be done to perform high speed, high accuracy tool measurement.

Chip Disposal

Chip bucket pulled out separately on the left and right side

The standard specification comes with chip buckets on the left and right at the bottom front of the machine.

Chip bucket

Chip conveyor (discharging chips outside of the machine) (Option)

The type of optional chip conveyor to be selected is based on the type of machined chips to be produced. Spiral conveyors on both sides of the machine table smoothly remove machined chips. ConSep with a drum filter is recommended to remove small chips.

Chip conveyor

Magnetic separator (Option)

Magnetic separator which is inside the coolant tank separates ferrous chips from the coolant.

Carbon package (Option)

Designed to prevents dust generated during carbon processing.


Environmentally Friendly

High efficiency chiller unit with inverter control

The VCN series is equipped with a chiller unit that has a high energy saving rate due to inverter control.

Energy consumption: Up to 30% reduction

Chiller unit

Auto power off for lower energy consumption

Reduce energy consumption by automatically turning off the CNC screen, LED lighting, chip conveyor and cover coolant as well as chiller unit.

CO₂ emissions: 0.2 ton reduction per year
