Giddings & Lewis V Series vertical turning centers

Giddings & Lewis V Series vertical lathes, with tables from 800 to 2500 mm, are a productive addition to any shop floor. Carrying the Giddings & Lewis tradition of robust construction and precision, the V Series is designed with industry-leading functionality and reliability at an affordable price. No other vertical turning center includes an infinitely-adjustable cross rail and hydrostatic ram as standard or offers a more cost-effective tooling system.

V Series advantages

  • Hydrostatic ram adds rigidity for heavy or extended ram machining, better surface finishes and greater accuracy
  • Precision dual-scale, infinitely-adjustable cross rail handles a wide range of parts
  • Giddings & Lewis VLock, a stiff tooling interface, uses standard modular tools reducing tooling costs and optimizing cutting
  • Rigid, cast-iron base construction supports heavy loads and high cutting forces
  • Floor-level installation eliminates need for special foundations
  • Compact footprint minimizes valuable production space
