Vertical Turning Lathe

What Is a VTL? Oh It’s a Vertical Turning Lathe!

There are two types of CNC turning centers: horizontal and vertical.  Horizontal turning centers are the most common.  Vertical turning centers are typically called a vertical turret lathe or VTL.  With a horizontal turning center, the spindle is horizontally oriented, and tools are mounted out of the side of tool holder and cut across the workpiece.  With this type of turning center, gravity pulls the chips away from the workpiece.
