At South-Tec 2017, October 24-26 at the TD Exposition Center in Greenville, SC, EMAG will feature manufacturing systems for precision metal components with the VL 2 modular vertical turning machine for the low-cost production of chucked components with a diameter of up to 100 mm.
This machine from the VL series will be on display for visitors to experience the successful EMAG modular inverted vertical lathe design. With the aim to develop a system of modular machines ideal for use in the manufacturing of medium and large batch runs, one common feature of all four machine sizes is the shared modular, compact design. Their small footprint means reduced floor space costs and flexibility in machine layout. Every VL machine features an integrated automation system for transporting workpieces. When combined with the self-loading pick-up spindles, this automation concept ensures short cycle times and high productivity. To accommodate machine operators, all the service units are easily within reach, with the various units (electrics, hydraulics, cooling system, cooling lubricant and central lubrication system) accessible at any time so that the machines can be maintained with ease.

The technologies in the EMAG Group cover the entire spectrum of metalworking, including non-traditional processes. Electro-Chemical Machining (ECM) is used in the aerospace sector for the manufacture of blisks, while laser welding is essential in light weighting automotive components. eldec modular induction (MIND) hardening systems are also available from EMAG. Featuring Simultaneous Dual Frequency (SDF) technology, eldec hardening systems compliment the workpieces machined by EMAG lathes to create efficient, complete production lines. The flexible machine concepts and complete systems from EMAG offer modular and customized solutions for the production of workpieces in nearly every industry. We look forward to welcoming you to booth 1629!
