Romi Machine Tools develops CNC lathes for specialty applications
August 5, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Romi Machine Tools has created the C 420 and C 510 CNC lathes for manufacturers who have specialty applications.
The C 420 features a distance between centres of 39 inches (one metre), while the C 510 has a generous 59 inches (1.5 metres) between centres. These sizes give manufacturers flexibility in the length of the work they can machine.
Both models are equipped with a Siemens Sinumerik 828D CNC. The control features a 10.4-inch LCD monitor.
Key features include canned cycles for turning and drilling, linear and circular interpolation functions, thread opening functions, reference functions, coordinate systems, 256 pairs of tool wear offsets, a tool life cycle manager, background editing and resources for simulation of 2D and 3D machining.
Each Romi C Series lathe is equipped with the Romi manual machining package (RMMP) that allows simple operations to be completed manually without any type of programming.
The tools have a choice of a pneumatic or hydraulic tailstock, and the ability to use customized or speciality workholding devices and steady rests. The machines were built based on an open design, so that shops can customize many features as needed.
