TORGIM 280/300 distinguished itself for the large structure, the covered guides, the hardened bed, the natural gap and the ease of use.
The bed is covered on the whole length and has sturdy structure with stiffening ribs that assure an absolute undeformability. It is melted in special cast-iron Meehanite, it is distensioned in bracket, and its slide guides are largely sized, induction hardened and carefully ground in such a way as to maintain an absolute precision to the surface. Very useful is the natural gap allowing to work very large pieces typical of bigger machines which are less maneageble.
The head, melted in special Meehanite cast-iron and stabilized, largely sized, rigidly fixed to the bed assures the complete absence of vibrations. All the gears, made of steel Cr.Ni. hardened and ground on the involute profile too, rotate on high precision bearings. The spindle shaft is a forged one, it is full worked, bored, turned and pack-hardened. The hydraulic clutch and brake have external adjustments and a manometer allows the constant control of the hydraulic pressure. In this manner the machine can be adjusted according to any single requirement. The oil tank is placed in the inferior part of the head offering a quicker cooling.
spindle bore 105 mm
distance between centre up to 4000 mm
turning diametre in the gap 790 mm
24 spindle speed
Torgim is a company constituted by mr. paolo giana in 1966 to produce centre lathes with covered guides and a natural gap that permits to reach big diametres under head, without any reorganization of the machine and, so on, increasing it’s versatility.
during the years, to reply to the requirements of an ever-growing and varied clienteles, the production was widened up to cover the whole range of conventional centre lathes with height of centres over bed from 230 to 500 mm.
the innovative spirits of our firm and the growing demand of cnc simplified machines that don't involve high programming abilities, has successively brought to the construction of self-learning centre lathes (also called teach-in lathes), conceived to optimize the work’s capacities of the traditional single pulley lathes operators allowing them to carry out pieces with complex shapes assuring, the quality and precision of a cnc machine and the utilization facility of a traditional machine.
besides the torgim firm has a very wide machines park in continuous renovation that allows to satisfy the jobbing demands particularly for operations with the horizontal grinding of medium and great dimensions.
the torgim firm has to its disposal a factory of great dimensions that facilitates the motion and machining of pieces with notable volumetric overall dimensions.
