Toshiba's Powerful Vertical Turning Centres

on 1st August 2019

Leader CNC Technologies is proud to be designated as Main Dealer Europe for Toshiba Machine of Japan who, as a recognised world leader in the machine tool industry, uses the latest technology to meet the needs of all major industries. The range of CNC machine tools includes machining centres, horizontal boring machines, gantry mills and 5-axis machines. Toshiba Machine manufactures almost everything from start to finish – castings from their own foundry and their own control systems ensure total machine integrity and compatibility. Toshiba machines are found in aerospace, power generation, automotive, marine, construction and transportation industries.

Toshiba Machine’s vertical boring and turning machines are of the highest quality and include the TUE, TUD, TMD, TSS-C and TDS series.

Several sizes of TUE models of vertical borers are available, the 'S' model having a positional C-axis and driven tools. Many attachments and angle heads can be provided. The TUE-100 vertical turning centre is the smallest within the range of the well-established TUE Series. For a machine with a Ø1M table, the turning performance of the TUE-100 is exceptional.

The TUD is a turn only model and many tooling configurations are available. This model is available as either single table or twin pallet.

Several sizes of TMD models of vertical borers are available, this model having a gearbox driven C-axis and driven tools. Many attachments and angle heads can be provided and, like the TUD, the TMD is available single table or twin or multi pallets.

The TSS-C single column vertical turning lathe has the additional benefit of a movable X axis carriage, enabling the machine to process components nearly twice the diameter of the rotary table. The single radial elevating cross-rail on which the ram carrier is mounted uses a patented automatic compensation system to maintain straightness. A live spindle can be provided for boring, drilling and tapping operations.

The newest machine in the range, the TDS of vertical boring mills has been designed to process medium sized parts up to 5M in diameter, 2.75M high and weighing up to 30 tonnes. The double column construction, long stroke elevating rail, enclosed ram and high torque table provide the TDS with exceptional metal removal capability. These machines are available as turn-only or with C axis and live spindle.

You can visit Toshiba at this year’s EMO exhibition at Hannover this September on stand E81 in Hall 27. For more information on the vertical turning centres visit our Products page or alternatively follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.
