    product description

    Warco VMC Vario Turret Milling Machine

    Traditional design, all new inverter drive system

    We introduced the original VMC more than forty years ago as a belt change machine. Now we are offering this upgraded version, with infinite speed control. A traditional design, now future proofed with bang up to date electronics.

    The VMC has long had robust, heavy duty construction, giving dependable and highly precise long term performance. Now, the VMC Vario benefits from the maximum flexibility offered by the inverter drive, as well as an even more powerful 2 horse power motor. 

    To achieve maximum torque in the low speed range, there is one belt change of the US made Gates tooth belt, which transmits vibration free drive.
