GM Group to make MACH debut

22 February 2022

OLDHAM-BASED GM Group will make its MACH debut appearance, introducing the Victor Vturn-A20YCM and the Vturn-S26/60CM single spindle turning centres as well as the compact Vcenter-P76 machining centre.

The diverse Victor range has powerful solutions to cater for a wide range of industry sectors, with everything from small to large machine tools with simple or complex machining solutions that can be tailored to the exact needs of the user. The machines on show at MACH will provide just a snapshot of what is possible with this industry leading brand.

To demonstrate the uncompromising levels of rigidity and stability that deliver class leading precision, flexibility and productivity, the GM Group will highlight the benefits of the compact Vturn A20-YCM single spindle turning centre with its Y-axis milling capability and an 8-inch chuck with a swing over bed of 700mm whilst a 52mm diameter bar can pass through the headstock for barfeeding applications. The machine provides X-axis travel of 150+35mm with 600mm in the Z-axis whilst the Y-axis driven tooling unit can traverse +/-45mm. Within this spacious work envelope sits a main spindle that generates 11/18.5kW power with a spindle speed of 5000rpm.

Complementing the power of the spindle is a robust and powerful 4.5kW motor on the driven tooling turret. This high-torque motor drives the 12-station BMT-55 tooling turret at spindle speeds up to 4,000rpm. With class leading power output from the turning spindles and a driven tooling unit that is all manufactured in-house by Victor, the Vturn is extremely well equipped with a list of options that include a FANUC 0i-TF CNC control unit, 10.4 inch colour display, high-pressure coolant system, part catcher, oil skimmer, programmable tailstock and much more.

Complementing the Vturn A20-YCM at MACH will be the Victor Vturn-S26/60CM. With a 600mm swing over bed and 640mm between centres, the 6230kg powerhouse has a spacious work area and a compact footprint to suit any machine shop. Furthermore, with a 12 position live tooling station that can drive the 25mm maximum tool diameter at 6000rpm with its high torque 4.5kW motor, the milling flexibility of the Vturn-S26/60CM facilitates productive one-hit machining. With a bar capacity of 75mm through the drawbar and 640mm between centres with a maximum turning diameter of 420mm, the Vturn-S26/60CM is the perfect machine for both one-off components and production runs of everything from small to medium sized parts. Like the Vturn A20-YCM, the Victor Vturn-S26/60CM is available with an extensive list of optional extras that enable this machine to be tailored to the exact needs of the end user.

From its milling portfolio, the GM Group will introduce the Vcenter-P76 compact 3-axis vertical machining centre. Packing the power, rigidity and performance that Victor is renowned for, into a compact machining centre will be something to look out for at MACH. With a 2.8 by 2.7m footprint and an X, Y and Z-axis travel of 760 by 500 by 510mm, the Vcenter-P76 is remarkably spacious to facilitate the machining of small and large components alike. Incorporating a 15,000rpm 11/15kW spindle motor with the extremely rigid BBT40 spindle taper configuration, rigidity and performance is guaranteed, asserts GM Group. The machine is available with a 30 position ATC but like many features on the Vcenter-P76, a host of optional choices can be selected to meet the demands of the end user. The options include FANUC or Heidenhain CNC interfaces, spindle oil coolers, air or high pressure through coolant, oil skimmer, chip conveyor and cart and much more. Stand 19-619
