TORGIM 450/500 is a series of machines particularly studied in dimensions, weight. Effciency, easy operation, precision are the best operating feautures of these machines. The use of electromagnetic clutches in the head and in the apron permit to eliminate the feed inserction levers obtaining a perfect operative functionality and in such a way simplifying the operator movements. It’s the perfect machine for a lot of turning in very quick time, it assure high efficiency with big cutting depth and very precise works. It’s ok to work forged pieces and very hard material.
The head, melted in special Meehanite cast-iron, is steadily fixed on the bed and it is free from vibrations. All gears are made of Cr.Ni.Mo steel, hardened and ground and are mounted on high precision ball bearings. Two clutches and an electromagnetic brake assure the clutch, the braking and reversal motion to the spindle. The spindle is supported in three points and is mounted on precision TIMKEN ball bearings. It is provided with hole Ø 160 mm. The headstock lubrication is continuos by means of a gear pump and relative distributors, the carriage lubrication is guaranteed by an automatic motor pump.
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.
