Zimmermann FZU37

The FZU37 is a remarkably compact 5-axis gantry milling machine for machining aluminum, fibre composite materials and plastics. The particularly rigid and newly developed centre lead portal enables us to meet the ever growing requirements in the model and mould making industry. The thermo-symmetrical construction makes the FZU37 less susceptible to adverse ambient conditions.The modular design of the mono-block hook machine offers different lengths and height versions, as well as extensive equipment options, such as process cooling with cooling lubricants and/or minimum quantity lubrication. The great flexibility in material handling, the highest surface quality and accuracy result in an optimum price/performance ratio.
