Gantry machining centre VPC 2800-U

VPC 2800-U - More than increased performance

Enough is just not enough. The VPC 2800-U unites the advantages of the compact built VPC range with the working area proportions of the spacious portal machining centres PFZ/UPFZ from AXA. Its travel of 2940 x 1100 mm makes this multitalent stand out above the competition for large gantry machines. The compact construction integrates all the essential components in very confined space.

5-sides and 5-axes machining of large cubic workpieces is a simple task for the VPC 2800-U: The combination of a stepless interpolating 1-axis tilting head with a rotary table integrated into the frame makes this task simplicity itself.

  • Extremely rigid, static and dynamically well balanced ground frame construction
  • Spacious and easily accessible machine tables
  • Direct measuring systems for X/Y/Z axes
  • Cover according to current machinery directives
  • Ideal for crane loading by the open covering over the work area
  • Machine transport in one single piece
  • Optimal accessibility for all maintenance and service requirements
 
    In addition, the VPC 2800-U can be flexibly extended, for example:

  • Through spindle coolant with filter system
  • Chip conveyor in slat-band belt, scraper belt or magnetic belt versions
  • Controllers either from Heidenhain or Siemens
  • Automatic doors
  • Clamping systems – hydraulic, pneumatic, magnetic or manual
  • Touch probes and tool touch probe systems
  • Active power monitoring, collision monitoring and complete process monitoring
  • Tool identification systems
  • Laser breakage control with tool measurement
  • Remote maintenance

  • We can develop and manufacture special solutions for you upon request.
 

  • Large-scale dimensioned roller guideways for high dynamics and stiffness
  • Optimal guiding by extremely large guidance ratio
  • Real gantry drive in the X-axis with corresponding individual drive, guideway and direct measuring system for both portal columns
  • Drives and guideways are protected
  • Ball screws in all linear axes
 

  • Simple and very robust stationary placed tool changer
  • Magazine protected in rear part of machine
  • Stationary tool changer layout allows for long tool chains without any negative effect on machine dynamics and precision
  • Fixed location coded tool management for better operator monitoring
  • Simultaneous tool pre-selection by double gripping system
  • Support of various tool holding systems such as SK, BT, HSK, CAPTO
  • Magazine placement possible during machining
