Multifunctional vertical turning center

The UNIVERTOR V offers outstanding manufacturing competence for diverse workpiece applications at highest productivity, continuous accuracy and finishing precision. In contrast to many other machine tools in the market, the UNIVERTOR V convinces with an outstanding performance and excellent precision in this machine category. Due to its high machine stability, the series is predestined for hard turning operations. Short cycle times enable high piece numbers and maximum economic efficiency. Therefore, WEISSER combines the manufacturing processes specified for the respective applications with the original WEISSER pick-up system and customized automation concepts to create a perfect, process-reliable system solution.

4-axes machining
Highly productive simultaneous machining in one machine with two powerful disk turrets (4 axes). Intelligent technology processes and the combination of different machining steps offer high savings potential. Working with two tools simultaneously shortens the machining times of the workpiece and reduces the cost per part.


Rotational turning
With the rotation turning process developed and patented by WEISSER, precisely machined surfaces can be generated with twist-free finishing precision and thus replace the expensive grinding operations. The simultaneous rotation of workpiece and tool cutting edge reduces the machining time by up to 77 % compared with hard turning.


Hard turning
Hard turning describes the turning of steel with a hardness of more than 45 HRC. It is an efficient alternative for grinding hardened workpieces. The advantages of this process are shorter cycle, set-up and tooling times as well as the relatively lower investment costs and the options of wet and dry machining.


Out-of-round turning
3 times capacity with WEISSER HOT system for shorter piece times and lower piece costs. The technology enables the highly productive machining of a wide range of workpieces, such as pistons for combustion engines, camshafts, polygonal profiles or the production of polygon shapes (shaft-hub connections) with process-oriented perfection.


Internal / external grinding
Machining with the technology of external and internal cylindrical grinding in one machine is exemplary for perfect hard fine machining of rotationally symmetrical workpieces. In order to achieve optimum cycle times, this machining technology can be combined with hard turning or rotational turning processes.
