Zimmermann FZP42

The FZP42 is the largest and heaviest-duty variant of the FZP series machines. The Twin Bridge portal milling machine is designed for machining aluminium, titanium and steel components in a wide range of industry sectors and is available in either 5-axis or 6-axis configurations. Thanks to the huge and particularly rigid twin bridge central portal, the FZP42 can meet the increasing requirements of a wide range of industry sectors. The range is available with either 2-rotary axis or 3-rotary axis heads, spindle changers for roughing and finishing, turning tables and shuttle-type machining for offline setup. This thermo-symmetrical structure makes the FZU42 less susceptible to thermal growth, delivering consistent component accuracy across multiple production shifts.
