Proven Technology.

The FZ30 and FZ35 portal milling machines offer an economical solution for a wide variety of tasks. From finishing and with the FZ35 even light roughing of steel and cast iron to the machining of light metals and plastics, materials of all kinds can be milled. These series 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 aircraft 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.

The FZ30 and FZ35 allow an excellent workload, as several, even different parts can be clamped simultaneously and processed one after the other - naturally also in unmanned shifts.

Suitable Milling Heads

Minimal interference contours 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.

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.

Maximum precision at hightest 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.

Highest temperature stability thanks to monoblock 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 aluminium, CFRP and GRP, achieves a maximum performance in volume cutting.
