A long and successful association with heavy machine tools and their field of application has lead to the design and development of Karussell vertical boring and turning machines. Being British designed and built they are naturally innovative and ready to deliver the highest quality work in the most demanding situations and are a practical and affordable alternative to both the new and retrofit sectors of the global market.
Traditionally the home of many of the world's most famous makers of vertical boring mills and the wealth of experience gained over two centuries of machine making, Karussell vertical boring and turning mills embody those original and well proven principles thoroughly brought up to date with today's technology, some examples of which are the extra heavy duty hardened and ground guideways and Ballscrews employed on all Karussell vertical boring mills, the extremely dependable variable speed inverter drive with fixed gear box and provides stepless cutting speed range electronically and the heavy duty table drive system; completely oil immersed to give years of trouble free service. When modern day design overtakes traditional concept, from our revolutionary 21st century VTL we have stepped in to the future.
