Aa 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 employed on all Karussell® vertical boring mills, the extremely dependable variable speed invertor drive which omits the use of a mechanical gearbox and provides a 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.

Today at Karussell®, the production of our ground breaking model BM3600R VTL is well underway with the help of a committed team of engineers, machinists and fitters working together under one roof where in-house facilities include heavy fabrication plant, 50 + 20 ton overhead cranes and a machine shop equipped with large capacity cnc milling and boring machines ready to facilitate an ambitious programme of development soon to include models with live spindle options and a series of even larger capacity mills capable of turning up to 5600mm in diameter.
