CNC Vertical Turning Lathes

Hankook America supplies VTL’s from 21” chucks to 30 foot tables with milling and C-axis or with only turning. Parts up to 660,000 LBS can be machined accurately up to 13 feet high.

Hankook VTB/VTC Series offers tables from 40 inch up to 98”. These wrap-around column machines have full cast bases unlike the fabricated bases of our competitors which barely support the table of the machine. The rigidity of the Hankook VTLs is able to handle the roughest cutting requirements.

The VTB/VTC Double Column machines start at 98 inch tables and go up to 30 feet diameter and can handle all the secondary machining usually requiring moving a part to another large machine.
