Products and services

Together, the conventionally designed portal milling machines and the 5 and 6-axis gantry portal milling machines cover the entire range of machining capabilities. The gantry construction with side walls filled with special concrete, a stable clamping table and thermally optimized portal are unmistakable Zimmermann characteristics that guarantee optimum mechanical precision. All Zimmermann milling solutions can be equipped with a wide range of accessories.

Zimmermann's horizontal machining centers feature pioneering new developments and high-performance milling spindles. They make it possible to manufacture aerospace industry components from a wide range of different materials. The rigid machine bed of the innovative travelling column unit and the highly dynamic Zimmermann milling heads ensure an efficient milling process. The automation system, which is supplied as standard, and the newly developed pallet handling capability are integral components of the horizontal machining centers.


The FZH400 Horizontal Machining Center is Zimmermann’s most recent milling solution and bears the „made in Germany”quality label.

The core technology is a robust, water-cooled travelling column. With increasing depth of immersion into the material, the guide carriage distance grows and this leads to advanced rigidity. The stepped drive guide ensures a perfectly constant geometry along the Z axis. This in turn guarantees maximum rigidity in sensitive areas of the workpiece.
