Zimmerman’s FZU five-axis gantry milling machine is a lightweight option for prototype, tool and moldmaking. The machine is particularly suitable for machining aluminum and casting resins like Ureol. The FZU is distinct from other Zimmerman machines like the FZ33 in that the FZU is a compact, preassembled machine that Zimmerman assembles in-house and then transports to the customer so that setup and startup require minimal effort.

The FZU gantry machine is thermo-symmetrical, meaning that the milling spindle, guides and other accuracy-determining components are arranged so that their heating is either compensated or so that they can expand in uncritical directions. The base frame consists of a steel-welded construction that forms a continuous U-shape. The machine gantry’s centrally guided Z-slide has an octagonal section that makes it stable. The FZU five-axis gantry milling machine is approximately 3,500 mm x 7,500 mm x 5,000 mm with a weight of approximately 35 tons. The machine includes the new VH10 milling head, which achieves an extremely high-power density. The VH10 head replaces the VH12, which is not a Zimmermann product.
