Compact and Flexible.

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 FZ33c facilitate a consistent, efficient milling process. Thanks to its combination of high stability and rigidity the machine meets all the requirements of model making, tool and mold industry, including the demands of the aerospace, automotive and alternative energy industries.

Suitable Milling Heads

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 highest 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.
