COST EFFECTIVE VERTICAL TURNING CENTERS
VERTICAL TURNING CENTERS • TAILORED TO YOUR REQUIREMENTS
Designed for high machine stiffness and high precision repeatability, Phoenix Vertical Turning and Milling machines provide a tailored solution to your needs. Constructed with all cast iron and steel forgings and the best bearing support system in the industry, an exact repeatable cut is always guaranteed. Tailor-made to your part height and part swing requirements, Phoenix VTMC’s provide both flexibility and value. Depending on your application, add-ons such as pallet systems, 2-axis CNC heads, tool and part probing, and various tooling designs can be engineered for the machine as well.
Over the past 30 years, we have provided more large vertical turning and milling machines than any other manufacturer in the world. These machines have been used to make aircraft engine parts, bearings, heavy cast pump housings, nuclear pressure vessels and steam/gas turbine parts, among many other applications.
This compact, cost-effective family of machines started with the VTC-1000, built with a 12-position turret. Unlike other similar machines at the time, the Phoenix VTC-1000 was designed with an angle-mounted turret for added tool clearance.
As we sensed the mounting demand, we created the 2nd generation of the VTC-1000, equipped with a ram and tool changer. This model eliminated the need for boring bars and hook tools, increased rigidity and allowed for deeper cutting depth. These machines have since been used for everything from aerospace parts to railroad wheels.
The VTC-1500 expanded the line of compact machines by increasing swing, enabling the machine to handle a larger part diameter than previous models. Built with a 37-inch Ram and Xed Cross Rail, this machine is as robust as some that have a much larger footprint while sticking to the compact framework and cost-effective price point of the Phoenix compact vertical family.

HIGH PERFORMANCE MEDIUM-DUTY TURNING MACHINES
As an early entrant into the world of foam pattern technology, we’ve paired with some of the nation’s most respected foundries to create castings that are completely tailored for each individual machine, but also have the strength and durability to hold up to our customer’s machining needs. The ability to design components with foam pattern castings allows us to build machines in different sizes with a minimal impact on cost.
Our range of medium-duty machines is built with heavy-duty boxed ways, gibs and straps and feature the latest in cross roller bearing technology. These machines are often built with certain additions that our customers require including: pallet systems, 2-axis CNC heads, tool and part probing, and various tooling designs.
The Phoenix product line includes the largest vertical turning and milling machines manufactured in the U.S.
LARGE VERTICAL TURNING & MILLING MACHINES
Designed for high-machine stiffness and high-precision repeatability, the Phoenix Vertical Turning Center (VTC) provides a tailored solution to your turning needs. Constructed with all cast iron and steel forgings and the best bearing support system in the industry, an exact repeatable cut is always guaranteed.
Custom-made to your part height and part swing requirements, the Phoenix VTC provides both flexibility and value. Depending on your application a second head can be added for milling, drilling or both. In addition, a customized pallet or gantry system is available to interface with your manufacturing floor.
Other design features of these machines include y-axis machining capability and floor-to-ceiling, stand-alone tool changers, which save substantial amounts of time and effort when changing tools on machines of this magnitude. With the machine operator in mind, we’ve also designed and developed state-of-the-art independent operator platforms for our largest machines. This allows for the same type of operational access and control as you’d find on machines a quarter of the size.
