Gantry machining centre UPFZ

UPFZ - The multi-talent for the toughest demands

The 2-axis tilting head is the key component of the UPFZ machine series. The head works in practically any position and so offers the greatest possible usability in your production plant. Once in place, the UPFZ also machines particularly large and complex workpieces all the way round – horizontally, vertically and even diagonally. Lower set-up times drive efficiency. Powerful, reliable and simple to use – indeed, it is a real talent.

  • Extremely rigid, static and dynamically well balanced ground frame construction
  • Spacious and easily accessible machine tables
  • Direct measuring systems for X/Y/Z axes
  • Cover according to current machinery directives
  • Ideal for crane loading by the open covering over the work area
  • Increased stability and rigidity by means of portal in inclined bed version for the UPFZ 50
  • Optimal accessibility for all maintenance and service requirements
 


    In addition, the UPFZ can be flexibly extended, for example:

  • Through spindle coolant with filter system
  • Chip conveyor in slat-band belt, scraper belt or magnetic belt versions
  • Controllers either from Heidenhain or Siemens
  • Rotary tables horizontally or vertically integrated, in 1 or 2 axes, combined with tailstocks, counterbearings or a further rotary table in gantry mode for clamping bridges
  • Automatic doors
  • Clamping systems – hydraulic, pneumatic, magnetic or manual
  • Touch probes and tool touch probe systems
  • Active power monitoring, collision monitoring and complete process monitoring
  • Tool identification systems
  • Laser breakage control with tool measurement
  • Remote maintenance

  • We can develop and manufacture special solutions for you upon request.
 

  • Hardened precision steel slideways mounted on manually scraped or grinded surfaces
  • Optimal guiding by extremely large guidance ratio and Turcite coatings
  • High rigidity, outstanding long-term precision performance and excellent vibration absorbing capabilities of the guideways
  • Excellent resetting and adjustability of the guideways
  • Drives and guideways are protected
  • Ball screws in all linear axes
 

  • Extremely robust, stationary fixed tool changer
  • This enables very long chains without any restrictions of machine dynamics and precision
  • Short tool changing times by double gripping arm and due to centrally set tool transfer in X-axis
  • Fixed location coded tool management for better operator monitoring
  • Support of various tool holding systems such as SK, BT, HSK, CAPTO
  • Magazine placement possible during machining
