Process: 5-Axis, Vertical


Made in Kentucky, the simple but innovative VC-500A/5X Vertical Machining Center has a trunnion-style rotary/tilt table that allows for the accurate, cost-effective processing of small complex parts via full 5-axis machining.

The machine comes standard equipped with a robust, high-performance spindle that delivers exceptional metal removal capabilities in all common materials, including steel, aluminum and cast iron. Optional spindle speeds are available to address a variety of part production requirements.

An easy-to-use CNC allows for simple programming and faster part cycle times, in either EIA or MAZATROL conversational programming language that makes it easy to generate programs for highly complex parts production. Efficiency is further maximized with a 60-tool capacity magazine, which helps reduce set up time, allows for redundant tooling and provides more unmanned, uninterrupted operations.
