Horizontal Lathes


CNC lathes from the Romi C Series are machines with great flexibility for machining several types of parts, with an excellent level of power, quick movements and machining accuracy. They are targeted for oil and gas, sugar mills, naval, steel mills and energy segments of heavy industries. The robust mechanical structure of Romi VT Series provides rigidity, stability and versatility in machining processes of a wide range of workpieces found in the heavy industry, such as rings, sleeves, flanges and covers, among others.

What Are Horizontal Lathes?

A horizontal lathe is a type of lathe machine designed to spin the workpiece on a horizontal axis, parallel to the machine bed. The chuck and tailstock secure the workpiece from above, allowing the machine to efficiently handle lighter, longer workpieces that may not require very large diameters.

Common applications include machining tubing, piping, engine shafts and other slender parts that can leverage the generous distance between centers horizontal lathes accommodate. Typical maximum load capacities range from 300 kg on standard workshop machines up to 1 ton or more on heavy-duty production lathes.

What Do Horizontal Lathes Do?

The horizontal orientation allows these machines to excel at various longitudinal machining operations. The workpiece rotates between the chuck and tailstock, allowing the cutting tool to approach from the side to shape the part along its length. Common horizontal lathe processes include:

Facing – Machining the ends of the workpiece
Turning – Reducing diameter as the part rotates
Parting/grooving – Cutting narrow trenches around the diameter
Boring – Enlarging interior diameters
Threading – Cutting screw threads, both internal and external
Taper turning – Machining angled diameters

This versatility makes the horizontal lathe an indispensable multi-purpose machine. Its capacity for manipulating the workpiece and accessing its full length with tools enables efficient, precise machining of symmetrical features on longer, slimmer parts.
