Vertical Pick-Up Lathes from the Global Market Leader

EMAG is the global market leader for vertical pick-up turning machines.
These vertical lathes are ideal for manufacturing large batch sizes of chucked
and shaft components. Additionally, integrated automation technology ensures
the high productivity of EMAG CNC machines.


VL Modular Turning Machine: Integrated Precision – The VL Series

The modular VL pick-up turning machines are space-saving vertical turning centers with an integrated automation system. Maximize performance and achieve the lowest possible unit cost with these turning machines. Available in a variety of versions, the VL series vertical turning centers allow for the production of workpieces ranging from 10 mm to 400 mm (0.4 in to 16 in) in diameter. With its pick-up working spindle, the automation system is very responsive when it comes to traversing along the X and Z-axes and the tool turret guarantees short indexing times. To machine complex geometries, these CNC lathes can also be equipped with a Y-axis in the turret. 

The VL 3 DUO CNC turning center extends this product range even further with a twin-spindle machine solution for chucked parts up to 150 mm (6 in) in diameter. Each turning centers machining area includes a 12 tool turret. Driven or turning tools can be loaded on these turrets. 

A TrackMotion automation system links the vertical turning centers in a VL DUO Line. The vertical turning machine and automation system both use a Fanuc or Siemens control unit.

VL Turning Centers



Customized VLC: Custom Manufacturing Solutions Based on VLC Series CNC Turning Centers

The VLC series CNC turning centers offer a wide range of technology modules, and can be customized for specific machining requirements. Turning tools, milling spindles, as well as, multi-spindle drill head modules are available.

The VLC 100 GT combination machine turns and grinds chucked components. Designed with pick-up automation, this CNC machine can be equipped with a grinding spindle and a fixed block tool holder. 

The VLC 500, VLC 800 and VLC 1200 multifunctional production centers are perfect for maximizing performance and the complete machining of large workpieces with a maximum diameter of 1,200 mm (47 in). Additionally, this CNC lathes integrated technology allows for complete production in one clamping operation: soft and hard machining, interrupted cut, turning, drilling, milling, grinding, etc. Precise heavy-duty machining.

Production VSC: Multifunctional Production Centers

Every CNC machine in the VSC series is a complete manufacturing cell, with the ability to self-load due to the integrated pick-up spindle. The ability to customize the machine tool to fit a variety of production requirements is one of the primary benefits of the VSC series. 

Turning, drilling, grinding, milling, gear cutting, as well as honing – can be performed on just one machine tool. Additionally, we are able to maintain our high quality standards by using a measuring probe, integrated into the lathe. This probe provides quick and accurate measurements of the workpiece, without any extra effort.

Shaft Machining Modular VT: High Performance Shaft Production

Four-axes, short travel distances and a powerful main spindle – these are the strengths of the VT seriesCNC turning centers, designed for workpieces with a maximum diameter of 200 mm (8 in). When required to produce high part volumes, the benefits of this machine platform are obvious! By machining the workpiece from two sides, more parts can be machined, quicker on this platform - as a result, production times are dramatically reduced.
