What it is :
Full CNC Portable Orbital Lathe
Lathe = Stock removing machine, whose cutting
movement takes place thanks to the relative rotation between the
piece and the cutting tool.
Orbital = machine whose tool
traces circular paths around the piece to be worked on.
Portable = It is the machine
that is installed and fastened on the piece, instead of the
piece being fastened onto the machine.
= The machine as well as the processes and parameters of
machining are completely run and controlled by the computer.
The control panel is made
up of one single body, allowing for an easy operation of the
machine through a touch screen and a handwheel .
The software allows for
editing/saving of the code of the tool’s route in a standard
g-code and m-code.
Some of the software’s
1)graphic display that
shows the tool’s route and real time updating
2)viewing, in real time,
of the x and z axis coordinates
3)possibility to define up
to 253 cutting tools for the automatic compensation of the
tool’s route with the programmed parameters
What it does:
For “on-site” turning with
extreme precision (completely run by a CNC control panel), on
faces and internal and/or external extremities of cylindrical
surfaces, of fixed tubular bodies which are immovable or
impossible to rotate.
- Straight line and/or
curved - internal and/or external
- Standard and/or
- Simple and/or
- Multilevel cylindrical grooves.
In order to simplify the use of this machine tool, Sir
Meccanica has created a simple and innovative principle : “WIZARD
SYSTEM” that eliminates the programming in code, simplifying the
operations for less expert users.
The computer term “wizard”, coming from the English language, wants
to signify how a procedure that would otherwise be very complicated,
becomes magically simple, thus enabling even non-qualified users to
“Wizard” is an accessory software
of the machine controller that, if installed in the main application
of the controller, will allow the user to carry out complicated
operations through a series of simple steps.
The main characteristics of Sir Meccanica’s wizard
- Simplicity of use
- Carrying out the same operations contained in the main
application, but in an easier way.
- The possibility to go “back” and modify the choices made
- Use of a graphic interface
The traditional lathes are very cumbersome and
cannot be moved from where they have been installed, therefore the
piece to be machined must be taken to the machine and fastened; with
the TOP200 it is the machine that is taken and fastened onto the
piece to be worked on. The TOP200, occupies little space, especially
where the machining takes place.
In the traditional lathes, the cutting movement is given by the
rotation of the piece; in the TOP200 it is generated by the machine.
FASTENING AND SELF-CENTRING
The machine is installed on the tubular bodies,
through an internal self-centring system at expansion appropriately
The TOP200 can turn out very
useful in all the technological and plant sectors, where there are
fixed and immovable elements and tubular bodies of all kinds, that
must be repaired, engaged, modified….. with reduced or dangerous
For example, it is possible to carry out:
Profiling and/or flanging of
ends on which particular fittings must be inserted.
Creation of multilevel
grooves for connections to devices.
Creation of threading for
precision components (for liquids or gas) of varied types.

MAXIMUM EXTERNAL MACHINING DIAMETER = 250 mm
MINIMUM EXTERNAL MACHINING DIAMETER = 38 mm
AXIS “C” ROTATION UP TO 100 rpm
STROKE LENGTH “X” AXIS = 60 mm
STROKE LENGTH “Z” AXIS = 100 mm
Portable machine with three motorized axis
and an interchangeable anchorage/centring system that is
positioned in the inside diameter of the tube to be machined.
This system allows for the same machine to be used for different
diameters (up to 250 mm) simply by changing the fastening group
which is composed of two conical chucks at expansion.
Possibility to change the tools according to the
machining to be carried out (outside diameter or face)
CNC control activates a series of motors and guides, that
control and coordinate the movement of the machine’s axis, in
order to place the tool in the scheduled position at the right
The numeric control used is extremely
simple and handy. The basic programming language is in
accordance to ISO standards. The 3D graphics of the piece can be
instantly zoomed to verify the details.
It has been designed taking into consideration
the actual needs of the CNC lathe operators.
Simple and perceptive, with an interactive
touch screen display graphics.
It can even be used by personnel with low
expertise in programming. The “conversational” programming
standard allows for the creation of complicated profiles.
Easy to use. The routes of the tools can
be quickly and directly created on the control panel, starting
from the coordinates on the drawing.
The CNC has a dynamic graphics for the
simulation of the machining on the piece to be worked on.
The CNC interface is simple and
intuitive. Besides the possibility to create programs
manually, it is also possible to execute files created by
sophisticated CAM programs without having to key in any command.
The three modalities FILE, JOG e MDI are
fully supported and can be used together. It is possible to open
a file and view it, give commands in MDI modality and pass onto
the JOG modality without any limits.
A series of windows allow for a correct setting
of the machining and for the viewing of the simulation of the
