Romi D 1000 Vertical Machining Center

This Romi Machining Center is equipped with a low maintenance, 40 big plus taper direct drive motor that improves stiffness, accuracy and allows increased depth of cut.

Romi’s New Generation D 1000 vertical machining center was designed and built based on extensive customer research, and has numerous features that enhance the machine’s rigidity and precision.

Like all Romi machine tools, it is built with Romi-made monoblock cast iron beds that absorb vibration and allow consistent production of highly precise parts. It features thermal compensation with sensors to help maintain stable, dimensional results in real time, even during long working periods when the machine temperature increases.The Romi VMC is also equipped with a low maintenance, 40 big plus taper direct drive motor that improves stiffness, accuracy and allows increased depth of cut.

According to Mr. Rafael Boldorini, General Manager at Romi USA, “The D 1000 is built from the ground up with rigidity and accuracy in mind. In addition to specific features like thermal compensation and a monoblock base, the shear weight of the machine enhances accuracy. Without any options at all, the net machine weight is 14,500 lbs.“

The D 1000 VMC has a 48” x 22” table and is equipped with a Fanuc 0i-MF i-HMI CNC with 15” touchscreen. It has a high speed and high quality package that allows better performance during machining. Linear roller guides facilitate feed rates up to 1.575 inches / minute (40 m / min), which facilitates precise and fast acceleration and positioning. They also increase robustness during machining and load capacity (part weight) on the table. The machine is equpped with a vertical tool changer with 30 tool capacity.
