WHO IS MOMENTUM


The Momentum Machine Tool Company is headquartered in Houston, Texas, and has a production facility in Taichung, Taiwan. The firm developed its MVL-series vertical turning lathe (VTL) because there wasn’t anything else available to meet customers’ needs in the way that it does. Specifically, the MVL is unique in having all of the construction elements that distinguish truly heavy-duty VTLs, along with a moderate price. Please see the 10-minute video below for a guide to the MVL’s exceptional construction quality, and learn what sets it apart from lighter-built machines.

MOMENTUM MVL REVIEWS


User of 6 EVL-12s with hydraulic chucks
We run them hard. Nothing but High Temp Alloy forgings and run 24 hours a day, 6 days a week! Our first purchase was for 2 in early 2012 and then 2 more in late 2012. Then in mid-2013 we bought #5 and 6! They are heavy duty, rigid and we get great surface finishes, even on those tough materials.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

Momentum's MVL-series is among the industry’s beefiest, featuring: massive key components; full-wrap columns; full-length cross rails; robust rail elevation and locking; single-piece saddles; floor mounted tool changers; oversize spiral gear drives; geared axis motors; thrust and radial table bearings; and more machine weight, maximum part weight, and horsepower! Few machines are built like the MVL, and certainly none near its price price point. Please see the 10-minute video above for a full guide to the MVL’s exceptional construction quality.
