Zimmermann Displays Three New Machines at IMTS 2022

Gantry designs feature enhanced performance

Published: Wednesday, August 17, 2022 - 11:57

(Zimmerman: Wixom, MI) -- Zimmermann Milling Solutions, a leading global high-tech supplier of portal milling machines, will virtually show three new gantry machines in its booth at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago September 12-17, 2022.

When discussing rigidity, nothing beats mass. Zimmerman’s biggest double-bridged gantry sets new standards for dynamic roughing while maintaining high precision. The FZP42 CNC gantry milling machine combines work areas of different sizes, travels, milling heads, and CNC controls. Regardless of weight and size, the milling process is exact. Furthermore, the gantry design is particularly suitable for the entire range of component machining. The structurally rigid center-guiding gantry, cross and Z-Ram, and dynamic milling head enable a consistent, efficient milling process. This combination of high thermal stability and rigidity meets industry-specific requirements in tool-and-die making, aerospace, and automotive industries.

Due to its modular system concept, the FZP37 is available in various sizes, custom configuration, and CNC controls. The newly designed gantry with center-guided Z-Ram, in combination with Zimmermann’s dynamic milling heads, ensures an efficient and consistent milling process. The high thermal stability and rigidity meet industry-specific requirements in model- and tool-and-die making as well as in aerospace and automotive industries.

The FZP32 is a high-performer for dynamic machining of aluminum, fiber composites, plastics, and tooling board. Its thermosymmetrical design results in high surface quality and accuracy. The rigid center-guiding gantry allows Zimmerman to meet the increasing demands in model and mold-making as well as aerospace. Additionally, the flexible design of the FZP machine line offers various sizes and configurations through its modular system as well as extensive equipment options and a fully enclosed work area, including effective dust extraction systems and more.
