Romi’s D 1000AP DD is a 40" × 24" vertical milling center designed to combine conventional and high-speed milling applications for die/mold, aerospace, agricultural, energy and other industries. According to the company, the strong machine structure, combined with its 15,000-rpm, 25-hp spindle, enables higher cutting speeds and depths than standard VMCs.

The control package uses a Siemens 828D featuring advanced look-ahead and fast processing time. These features, together with graphic operator support functionality, offer effective machining advantages for feed rates as high as 1,575 ipm. Several Romi-specific software and hardware options can provide a mix of standard G-code and conversational programming. The control supports features like 3D and real-time simulation.

The VMC offers residual material removal and a die/mold package for smaller machine shops as well as other options including the Romi fourth axis, part probing and robot integration.

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
