Exact.
Stable.
Versatile.

The dynamic 2-axis milling heads VH30 has a high-frequency spindle (HF spindle). The fork head is designed in monobloc versions made of cast iron. This design achieves maximum temperature stability and has integrated vibration and vibration damping, which ensures even more precise results during the milling process. The high-torque VH30 milling head offers a plus when it comes to roughing steel and cast iron.

The VH30 achieves low non-productive times during start-up, shutdown and repositioning. It is suitable for milling aluminium, composite materials, steel and cast iron.

Suitable Milling Machines

Excellent workload for various tasks

The FZ30 and FZ35 portal milling machines meet industry-specific requirements from many areas, for example in model and mould making for machining models, moulds, injection moulding and sheet metal forming tools in many variants, in å construction for trimming trim parts, stretch moulding parts, rudders and special applications in acrylic glass as well as in boat and shipbuilding, for the manufacture of laminating moulds or deck structures.

For a consistent and efficient milling process

This gantry milling machine is perfect for machining aluminum and composite materials. The machine sits on a flat foundation and can be set up on any solid industrial floor. The machine table is firmly anchored to the FZ33 compact so the workpiece does not have to be moved. The milling process is highly precise, regardless of weight and size of the workpiece.

The flexible power package

This CNC portal milling machine is designed for the machining of hard materials as well as aluminum. With its solid cast base, it does not require a foundation and can be set up on any solid shop floors. In addition, the sidewalls are filled with a special dampening concrete mix to further enhance performance. The machine has a fully enclosed working space with a fixed machine table. The structural sound overhead gantry with a reinforced Z-ram make up the moving masses. The combination of high strength and rigidity, constant moving masses and dynamic drives, will meet the industries high demands.
