Speed and accuracy for high-volume or short-run production. (Machine of the Month).

ROMI'S G 20 CNC TURNING CENTER provides power, precision, and efficiency for mixed-volume, short-run, and high-volume applications. The machine is robust and handles heavy cuts in difficult-to-machine materials.

Its swing is 17.35 in., maximum turning diameter is 11.0 in., and cutting length is 21.26 in. Rapid traverse rates of 708 ipm in the X axis and 945 ipm on the Z accelerate machine cycle times and reduce non-cut times. Adding to this is the G 20's 12-station, servo-controlled, hydraulically clamped, curvic-coupling tool turret with a 0.7 sec indexing time. A full 180[degrees]index takes just over a second.

The machine's 35[degrees]slant-bed design features a stress-relieved, one-piece, L-shaped casting. …
