Zimmermann's horizontal machining centers feature pioneering new developments and high-performance milling spindles. They make it possible to manufacture aerospace industry components from a wide range of different materials. The rigid machine bed of the innovative travelling column unit and the highly dynamic Zimmermann milling heads ensure an efficient milling process. The automation system, which is supplied as standard, and the newly developed pallet handling capability are integral components of the horizontal machining centers.
Used in combination with the highly dynamic Zimmermann milling heads, the FZH ensures an extremely efficient milling process during the machining of aluminum and composites.
The FZH standardly features an integral pallet handling system with pallet changing during machine time. The handling system enables reliable transport of pallets without sagging. This makes it especially suitable for long pallets. Pallets are raised and lowered in such a way that the load is balanced, thus almost eliminating bending and torsion forces. The pallet system is easily extendable.
Core technology of the 5-axis Horizontal Machining Center FZH is a water-cooled column system. The innovative traveling column design provides increased stiffness. With increasing depth of immersion into the material, the guide carriage distance increases, thus ensuring more accurate results.
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 aluminium, CFRP and GRP, achieves a maximum performance in volume cutting.
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.
