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.

  • Why Y-Axis For Turn/Mill Machines?

    Live tooling on turning centers greatly expands multiple processing capability. With the addition of Y-axis, turning and machining process integration takes a significant step further. Here's how the technology works.

  • Hobbing on a Turning Center

    This manufacturer’s use of live-tool lathes overcomes labor cost in various ways. One of the latest sources of savings involves bringing another operation—hobbing—into these machines. INCLUDES VIDEO.

  • Applying Turn-Milling

    Combining a rotating tool with rotating work produces a machining operation that is distinct from standard turning or milling.
