On the Heavy Side.

The FZP42 CNC portal milling machine has a modular design which allows the combination of different operating ranges, travel distances, milling heads and CNC controls. The gantry construction makes it possible to machine components of all kinds. The machine table of the FZP42 is firmly anchored to the machine base, which means that workpieces do not have to be moved. The milling process is highly precise, regardless of weight and size.

The the structurally rigid center lead portal, the cross- and Z-slides and the dynamic VH60 milling head, facilitate a consistent, efficient milling process. Thanks to its combination of high thermo-stability and rigidity this machine is able to meet all the requirements of model making, tool and mold construction, including the demands of the aerospace and automotive industries. It is also suitable for machining of workpieces in shipbuilding and the alternative energy industry. 

Suitable Milling Heads

Highest temperature stability thanks to mono block design made of cast iron

The integrated vibration and vibration damping ensures maximum surface quality and cutting performance. Due to the backlash-free drive, the 2-axis milling head achieves precise positioning and repeat accuracy. Suitable for HSC machining of aluminum, CFRP and GRP, achieves a maximum performance in volume cutting.

Powerful and flexible – for the really difficult milling tasks

The drives, which incorporate zero-play torque motors, ensure outstanding dynamic behavior and maximum material removal rates in the machining of different materials. This extremely efficient milling head features a flexible MuST® spindle change system for precise execution of complex milling jobs. Roughing and finishing of various workpieces can be carried out without reclamping, which considerably reduces setup times.

Maximum Precision at highest temperature stability

This design ensures outstanding temperature stability and posses- ses integrated oscillation and vibration damping for even greater milling precision. The A-axis is powered by a zero-play torque drive package, and the C-axis is powered directly by a torque motor. A liquid cooling system dissipates the heat from simultaneous machining. Both heads are suitable for milling aluminum, composites, steel and cast iron.

Combines high torque with high rotation speeds

The A-axis drive employs dual torque motors with electronic pre-load for backlash elimination. The C-axis has a direct torque drive. The enables rapid an high precision positioning. With its symmetrical and compact design, which tapers towards the tool, the VH 20 milling head has a low interference contour and can be combined with spindles from various manufacturers.

Minimal interference thanks to slim design

The fork head is a mono block cast version. Despite its small size, the VH10 reached high clamping forces and thus allows a stable component processing. An effective process cooling with cooling lubricants and/or minimum quantity lubrication are optionally available. In particular, the VH10 is suitable for aluminum and composite material, plastics, UREOL and clay milling.

This milling head, that sets new standards

The M3ABC can machine different workpieces four times as fast as conventional 2-axis milling heads. This high-performance milling head is particularly suitable for complex processes, such as milling of conical pockets in structural components in the aerospace industry. With its constantly high advance rate and huge swiveling range the compact M3ABC offers almost unlimited flexibility.
