Romi's D-Series VMCs Feature Big-Bore, 40-Taper Spindles
Romi’s D series of vertical machining centers is designed for productivity, robustness and precision.
In the USA, Romi offers three D series VMC models: the D 800, the D 1000, and the D 1250. All three are equipped with big-bore, 40-taper direct-drive spindles with speeds of 10,000 or 15,000 rpm. Direct drive is low maintenance and improves accuracy and repeatability, while the big-bore 40-taper increases stiffness and allows increased depth of cut during machining, the company says.
The D 800, D 1000 and D1250 provide maximum machining volumes of 31" × 24" × 25", 40" × 24" × 25," and 50" × 24" × 25", respectively. Linear roller guides on all three models facilitate feed rates ranging to 1,575 ipm.
Each model is equipped with a FANUC 0i-MF i-HMI CNC with 15” touchscreen; sensors for thermal compensation; and a 30-tool automatic vertical toolchanger.
Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
Though it won’t replace high speed machining, Boeing sees “low speed machining” as a viable supplement to higher-rpm machines. Using new tools and techniques, a shop’s lower-rpm machining centers can realize much more of their potential productivity in milling aluminum aircraft parts.
