Vertical Bridge Gantry

VBG Series Vertical Bridge Gantry Mill

If you need more than six meters of X-axis travel on a bridge mill, look no further than the Amera-Seiki VBG Series Vertical Bridge Gantry machine. By utilizing a fixed table and a moving bridge, we can generate huge X-axis travels. As an added benefit, since the table doesn’t move, you’ll be able to work on long pieces while only needing about half the floor space of a machine with a moving table!

Many shops find our Gantry machines simpler and faster for loading and unloading their workpieces because they can simply move the bridge out of the way during this procedure. And if you really want to increase your speed and efficiency, ask us about adding a dual-ram option. We even offer a twin-bridge option so you can machine two areas of the workpiece at the same time!
