The FZ42 CNC portal milling machine has a modular design which allows the combination of different operating ranges, travel distances, milling heads and CNC controls. The gantry construction makes it possible to machine components of all kinds. The machine table of the FZ42 is firmly anchored to the machine base, which means that workpieces do not have to be moved. The milling process is highly precise, regardless of weight and size.

The the structurally rigid portal, the cross- and Z-slides and the dynamic VH60 milling head, facilitate a consistent, efficient milling process. Thanks to its combination of high stability and rigidity this machine is able to meet all the requirements of model making, tool and mold construction, including the demands of the aerospace and automotive industries. It is also suitable for machining of workpieces in shipbuilding and the alternative energy industry.
