Thermo symmetrical.

The FZU is a remarkably compact 5-axis gantry milling machine for machining aluminum, fiber composite materials, plastics and Ureol. The particularly rigid and newly developed center lead portal enables us to meet the ever growing requirements in the model and mold making industry. The thermo-symmetrical construction makes the FZU less susceptible to adverse ambient conditions.

The modular design of the mono-block hook machine offers different lengths and height versions, as well as extensive equipment options, such as process cooling with cooling lubricants and/or minimum quantity lubrication. The great flexibility in material handling, the highest surface quality and accuracy result in optimum price/performance density.

Suitable Milling Heads

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.
