Zimmermann FZH

Zimmermann’s horizontal machining centres 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 centres. The FZH ensures an extremely efficient milling process during the machining of aluminum and composites.
