Starting from the compact version VHE1166 (1.100x610x610) mm, the VHE machining centers standout for the high robustness of their cast iron structure. Such a structure allows for high removal volumes of material, and is extremely indicated for all the applications like stamping dies, and mechanical machining, requiring high spindle torque.

High performance 3-axis machines with a moving table. The C-frame structure, with an extremely robust base and column, is generously proportioned to guarantee maximum rigidity, stability, lasting quality and accuracy. VHE models are equipped with reinforced box-type guideways in hardened steel, specifically for heavy duty removal.

Machine characteristics:

  • The structures are fully made of GGG40 cast iron with superior damping properties, engineered with FEM analysis.
  • 3 axis high performance C-frame moving table architecture with high rigidity base and column.
  • Column generously dimensioned (> 5500 kg net weight) to grant maximum rigidity and stability.
  • Oversized Box Type reinforced guides made of hardened steel are properly positioned to bear the strongest roughing operation.
  • Turcite-B and skilled hand scraping on the guides deliver minimum friction and the best milling quality in finishing.
  • 4 guides installed on Y axis provide equal weight distribution along the entire X axis travel.
  • Direct coupling and pre-loaded ball screws are sized for high torque operations and precise positioning.
