VTC-1000 Turret Wheel Boring Machine
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.

For added convenience, Phoenix 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.
VTC-1500 Wheel Boring Machine
The VTC-1500 expanded the line of compact machines by increasing swing, enabling the machine to handle a bigger part diameter than previous models. Built with a 37 inch Ram and fixed 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.
