vertical turret lathe

[′vərd·ə·kəl ′tə·rət ‚lāth]
(design engineering)
Similar in principle to the horizontal turret lathe but capable of handling heavier, bulkier workpieces; it is constructed with a rotary, horizontal worktable whose diameter (30-74 inches, or 76-188 centimeters) normally designates the capacity of the machine; a crossrail mounted above the worktable carries a turret, which indexes in a vertical plane with tools that may be fed either across or downward.
