GANTRY® SD

Upper GANTRY MACHINING CENTER GANTRY® SD

Stable and powerful 5-axis machining of large and heavy workpieces

STABILITY FOR POWERFUL MACHINING

Vertical high performance cutting (HPC) of aluminum and particularly heavy-duty cutting of steel and titanium mean that a rigid and stable machine design is essential. The GANTRY SD with high moving Y-bridge is clearly designed for stability and is ideal for these demanding applications thanks to the generously dimensioned guide rails and drives as well as large guide rail spacing.

The Upper GANTRY machining center offers high power and speeds and also guarantees high stability and the necessary precision for 5-axis simultaneous machining of large, high-volume and heavy workpieces made of aluminum, steel and titanium. Compared with the GANTRY HD, the GANTRY SD series does not just offer maximum stability but also has larger axis travels in Y and Z.

CUSTOMIZATION

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.

Special configurations

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
