Stable.
Precise.
Efficient.

The fork head of this 2-axis milling head VH40 is designed in monobloc design made of cast iron. This design achieves maximum temperature stability and has integrated vibration and vibration damping for maximum surface quality and cutting performance. Thanks to the backlash-free drive, the VH40 achieves precise positioning and repeat accuracy in the A and C axes. The milling head is designed for HSC machining of aluminium, CFRP and GRP and achieves a maximum performance in volume cutting.

Suitable Milling machines

The Allrounder for Aviation and Automotive

The FZ37 portal milling machine has a modular design which allows different operating ranges and the use of different makes of CNC controls. The structurally rigid portal, the cross- and Z-slides and the dynamic milling heads facilitate a consistent, efficient milling process. The versatile 5-axis FZ37 is also suitable for machining of workpieces in shipbuilding and the alternative energy industry.

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.
