In August 2019 Lead Machine Tools' General Manager Mark Burn visited Hwacheon to sign off on a VT1150 MC Vertical Machining Center with box guideways for chuck sizes of Ø800 - 1270mm.

Thanks to its heavy and monolithic cast Meehanite bed, the VT-1150+ is extremely stable. Building on this solid foundation, these Vertical Lathes combine high performance main and feed drives, wide ball screws, 2-speed spindle drives and a robust travelling column. The VT-950+ and the larger VT-1150+ are thus currently among the most stable and high performance machines in this category.
