A vertical turning lathe from DS Technology can be configured with milling and grinding capability, robotic tool exchange, automatic pallet change, and other features to bring the benefits of unattended, single-hit machining to the production of very large workpieces. Called TVU, the machine is manufactured by DS Technology group member, Berthiez, at its factory in St. Etienne, France. The unit can be used for applications such as turning jet engine components and mold and die machining and turning of large wheels. The turning-milling-grinding center is based on a compact, stiff, cast-iron structure of thermo-symmetrical design with integral temperature compensation. Configurations include either high speed, with 630-800 rpm table for workpieces up to 3.5 t; or heavy load, with 220-500 rpm table capable of supporting 20-t components. Drive to the table, which can be up to 2.5 m in diameter, is via a two-stage gearbox and backlash-free chain.
