The Romi GL series of turning centers has been redesigned to offer more versatility and robustness to challenging turning applications. Each model is equipped with a built-in spindle motor that provides high power levels, high torque at low speeds, and thermal stability.

Four models are available. The T version is equipped with a 12-station turret for fixed tools and a servodriven tailstock. The M version is meant for driven tools. The Y version includes a Y axis with travel ranging to 150 mm (±75 mm), enabling drilling, milling and tapping operations in a single clamping. The S version has a second headstock with built-in motor, allowing machining of both sides of the workpiece.

The S version is equipped with a 19" touchscreen FANUC 32i-B i-HMI control. The T, M and Y versions are equipped with a 15" touchscreen FANUC 0i-TF i-HMI. Other standard features include a monoblock bed designed to absorb vibrations, linear roller guides, a thermal compensation system, hardened and ground ballscrews with pre-loaded nuts, and FANUC AC servomotors and drives.
