CNC Gantry-Type Machining Center

Power - Performance - Precision

bed, columns and travel tracks form a solid frame structure for high rigidity under hard machining conditions and high table loads
triple linear guides support the table across its entire travel distance in the X axis and allow high table loads
all axes feature preloaded ball screws, preloaded spindle nuts and powerful drive motors
quadruple linear guides of headstock on Z axis ensure maximum rigidity even with extra-long lay-outs
the included hydraulic spindle gears allow a wide speed range and high torque
including weight balancing system for easy movement and precise Z axis positioning
the main spindle features an oil cooler to ensure constantly balanced temperatures
quick tool changes via a tool-changer with dual-arm gripper
Fanuc 0i MD control with Manual Guide for easy programming and maximum reliability
chip conveyors on both sides of the table with a capacity of 55 kg/min ensure quick chip removal from workspace; including chain-type chip conveyor
productivity and flexibility can be increased even further by using any of the optional accessories: NC – Rotary Table, 90° Angle Cutter (more accessessories upon request)
automatic central lubrication system
The PBZ 6232 W with motorized W axis allows optimum manual positioning of the traverse during machining of different types of workpieces
