Upper gantry machining center GANTRY® HD
Highly dynamic 5-axis machining of large, light workpieces
HIGHLY DYNAMIC AND PRECISE
The machine design of the GANTRY HD is clearly tailored for highly dynamic 5-axis simultaneous machining and high-speed cutting (HSC) of light alloys such as aluminum. The machining center with high moving
Y-bridge impresses with optimum results in terms of both speed and precision. Options such as an enclosed workzone and exhaust systems create ideal conditions for machining different materials.
The modular system design permits customization in accordance with individual requirements. Configure your machining center specifically for your needs and benefit from the outstanding flexibility of the extensive module catalogue, which makes it possible to select different table sizes, the number of Y-bridges, the tool magazine configuration and the number of machining units, for example. The large machining table of the Upper GANTRY machining center offers various options for optimum clamping of individual workpieces.

- Highly-dynamic and precise 5-axis simultaneous machining
- Optimum results in the machining of light metals
- High speed cutting in aluminium
- Machining of large and large-volume workpieces
- Ideal conditions for machining different materials thanks to efficient extraction systems and fully enclosed workzone optional
- Good ergonomics
- Customer-specific configuration of table sizes, floor height and clamping concept
- Modular machine design for maximum flexibility thanks to many options
- Special configurations possible: Double portal (DP) and twin spindle (TS)
Double portal? Twin spindle? Individually configure your GANTRY machining center with two portals or two machining units.
“DP” DOUBLE PORTAL
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.
Guarantee maximum flexibility with the “DP” module!
“TS” TWIN SPINDLE
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.
Double your productivity with the “TS” module!
Applications and highlights
Special configuration with twin spindle (TS): The “TS” module extends GANTRY machines by adding a complete second machining unit. Customized configuration of the table size is also possible.
Large-size workzone and customized table length up to 47,000 mm
Ergonomic, swiveling control panel with bavius Spindle Monitoring System and camera monitoring system
Double portal as special configuration: Two Y-bridges permit separation into two workzones as well as joint machining of a part. It is also possible for only one Y-bridge to travel over the entire table length.
GANTRY application example: aluminum bulkhead (aerospace)
GANTRY application example: aluminum bottom frame (aerospace)
Special configuration with twin spindle (TS): Individual control of both Z-axes possible. Machining of two mirrored parts possible. Flexible and good access to the workpiece thanks to 2-axis head:
Rotation angle A-axis: +/- 105°
Rotation angle C-axis: +/- 200°
Camera integrated on each Z-axis
