Zimmermann FZU32

The FZU32 is Zimmermann’s smallest 5-axis portal milling machine in the FZU line for machining aluminum, carbon fibre composites, plastics and ureol. Thanks to the particularly rigid, central portal, FZU32 can meet the increasing requirements of the aerospace industry as well as in model and mold making. This thermo symmetrical structure makes the FZU32 less susceptible to adverse environmental conditions.

Thermo-symmetrical construction makes the FZU32 less susceptible to adverse ambient conditions thus ensuring excellent component accuracy and surface quality. Due to it’s great flexibility in material handling, high surface quality and accuracy, the FZU32 offers truly superior machining with high efficiency.

  • Offers superior processing with high efficiency
  • Machining of aluminum, carbon fibre composite materials, plastics and resin.
  • The flexible design of the FZU-line gantries offer different lengths and height versions.
  • The integral U shape Base and Side Wall structure removes the requirment for complex bespoke foundations typically associated with machines of this size.
