TVL8DC is a 24" Chuck, 30HP VTL with a swing of 41.3"(1050mm) and a 12 tool ATC. The machine has a rigid construction with box ways on both the X and Z-axes, with forced lubrication on all the ways. An 8" RAM structure on the Z-axis ensures heavy duty cutting at maximum stroke. There is a 2-speed gearbox to provide power at the low end, with full 30HP available at 46 rpm. A large Timken cross roller bearing ensures accuracy of heavy-duty cutting. The ATC tooling is clamped to the RAM by a face coupling, providing heavy-duty vibration free cutting.

Tong-Tai Seiki is a full line machine tool builder providing Standard Machines, Customized Machines and Special Purpose Machines in the US, Far East and China. It has offices in Taiwan, Mainland China, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan and USA. In the US, its machines are sold and serviced through a network of full service distributors throughout the country.
Tong-Tai started as a builder of machining lines for motorcycles in 1969. The principal products at this time were automatic turning machines and multi-spindle drilling and tapping machines. This basic background of building special purpose machines has been instrumental in providing the foundation of Tong-Tai being a machine tool builder rather than just an assembler of purchased components.
Tong-tai started building CNC turning centers in 1982 and advanced to horizontal and vertical machining centers in 1985. Knowledge to design and manufacture these machines was gained over 30 years of technical cooperation with various Japanese Machine Tool Builders. Since 1990 Tong-Tai had very close technical cooperation with Hitachi Seiki, one of the leading machine tool builders in Japan. Starting 1998, Tong-Tai was manufacturing and assembling machines for Hitachi Seiki, on an OEM basis, for export to USA, Japan and the world. Tong-Tai is also one of the few Taiwanese machine tool builders with ISO-9001 and ISO-14001 certification.
