One of the main problems faced by machine shops is skilled labor and process inefficiencies, leading owners to turn to automation solutions. However, determining what will work best for your shop can cause implementation to be longer than expected. The narrow-face width and flexible layout of the WVT-190 Vertical Machining Center from WSI is a one-stop solution for high-production shops looking to delve into the world of intelligent manufacturing. The WVT-190’s compact machine structure leaves you with a footprint of 39” wide and 104” deep, allowing maximum shop floor optimization.
The WVT-190 series machines are customized to meet your shop’s specific needs, from the spindle to an optional automatic workpiece changer. This machine can be equipped with a 4,000 rpm A2-6 or A2-8 spindle, which is firmly supported at both ends with a stable base, to ensure spindle rigidity and increasing machining performance. It also offers 13.9” x 11” XZ travels, with rapids hitting 1,181 ipm on the X-Axis and 787 ipm on the Z-Axis.
WSI has a patented gang-type, eight-tool turret on this machine, effectively overcoming the defects of a time-consuming tool change on conventional turrets. This machine was specifically designed for maximizing production time, with this specially designed turret improving tool change speed and loading capacity.
As we all know, shop floor space is directly linked to profits in that the more machines you can fit on the shop floor, the more money that can be made. WSI kept this in mind with one of the world’s most compact footprints for a vertical turning lathe in its class, with the added benefit of a large range of options offered to automate your process. Making it one of the most productive and profitable machines per square foot of floor space in the shop.
The space optimizing size of the WVT-190 can be used to create flexible layouts to fit various production requirements. Start out with a single machine operation or go right for a multi-machine combination. For multiple machines, there is enough depth of the machine to accommodate gantry type parts loaders and other peripheral equipment, such as infeed, transfer, and outfeed devices.
