The Romax Compact Twin Turbo presses fittings onto pipelines. Since there is usually little place on pipe systems and hardly any space to work, it was specifically designed in such a way that the engine and the hydraulic system face each other in parallel. As a result, the machine saves 15 per cent in length compared to its rod-shaped predecessor. Thanks to this parallel configuration, it is also well-balanced: the centre of gravity of the press machine is exactly where the user holds it. The design thus combines a powerful technique with a clear, ergonomic design vocabulary.
