Upper gantry machining centers with moving Y-bridge. For dynamic and stable machining of large-volume lightweight and heavy workpieces.


A machine concept that permits both dynamic 5-axis simultaneous machining of large workpieces as well as heavy-duty cutting and HPC machining with high torques? The GANTRY product line successfully achieves this with two machine series and a high level of modularization: The GANTRY HD is the specialist for dynamic machining and high speed cutting in aluminum. In contrast, the GANTRY SD features very large drives and guide rails for stable and efficient high performance machining of aluminum and heavy-duty cutting of steel and titanium. The intrinsically rigid machine design with high moving Y-bridge guarantees highly precise machining on table sizes up to 47,000 x 7,000 mm in both variants.


Both series of the high moving portal machining centers can be flexibly customized by means of a wide range of options and optimally adapted to your requirements. Two special configurations are particularly worth highlighting: the configuration with double portal (DP) and the configuration with two spindles (TS).

One product line // two series

The GANTRY product line comprises two machine series with different technological highlights and sizes. This allows us to cover a wide range of applications in 5-axis upper gantry machining centers and to provide the optimum machine for your application.

  • Precise 5-axis simultaneous machining
  • Intrinsically rigid machine design with high moving Y-bridge
  • Dynamic machining and high speed cutting in aluminum
  • High performance machining of aluminum as well as heavy-duty cutting of steel and titanium
  • Machining of large-volume and large workpieces
  • Customer-specific configuration of table sizes, floor height and clamping concept
  • Special configurations possible: Double portal (DP) and twin spindle (TS)
  • Modular machine design for maximum flexibility thanks to many options

Special configurations

Double portal? Twin spindle? Individually configure your GANTRY machining center with two portals or two machining units.


Expansion from one to two Y-bridges ensures maximum flexibility. The double-portal configuration permits separation into two workzones as well as joint machining of a part. In addition, this concept also means that you can machine a long part by moving only one of the two Y-bridges over the entire machine length.


Machine two identical or two mirrored parts in one operation by choosing the “TS” variant for your GANTRY machining center. This expansion results in two Z-axes, each with a complete machining unit comprising milling head and high-performance spindle.
