C Series heavy-duty flatbed CNC lathes from Romi Machine Tools Ltd. (Erlanger, KY) are built on cast iron monoblock beds to optimize rigidity, accuracy, and performance. To ensure quality, key components including the machine bed are designed and built in-house at the company’s facility in Brazil.
Nine models range in size from the C 1100H with a 28-inch (720 mm) swing over cross slide and 72-hp main motor to the massive C 2600H with an 80-inch (2,030 mm) swing over cross slide and a 155-hp main motor.
Net weights range from approximately 39,700 pounds (18,000 kg) to 134,500 pounds (61,000 kg), maximum weight between centers range from 33,100 pounds (15,000 kg) to 110,200 pounds (50,000 kg), and maximum torque ranges from 12,429 Nm to 44,200 Nm.
The cast iron headstock features a spindle with Timken bearings. The lathes are powered by a high-torque, continuously variable-speed AC motor. The manually driven quill has a built-in live center with high-precision bearings.
All models are built to reduce machine vibration and allow fast and accurate machining at full power. They’re ideal for heavy applications in the mining, aerospace, steel mill, and oil and gas industries.
