In the segment of XXL machines, Schiess offers the multitasking Verti-Master machine for turning, milling, grinding and boring in several sizes and configurations. The table width and face plate diameter vary from 3,000 mm up to 12,000 mm at machining heights up to 10,000 mm. As the manufacturers further stress, the travels and loads are individually adapted to customer requirements. The company highlights its VMG 4 project, which has two portals and an x-travel of 55,000 mm. The floor plate is specified as 4,000 to 45,000 mm. The consistent implementation of the Masterhead principle allows the customer to choose from a portfolio of potential machining heads. The XXL machines are available as a vertical lathe with two axes (VT), a vertical lathe with three axes and boring and milling drive (VM), as machines with a third linear axis (VMG), and as portal milling machines in gantry design, if desired with face plate (VMG-PS) as well. The manufacturers further offer a single-column vertical lathe with boring and milling drive (VME) with a turning diameter of up to 20,000 mm.
