PPFM – High Precision Milling Machine



The principle

The precision profile milling machine moves a column in the X-direction and is equipped with a programmable, servo-motor driven C axis with a tilt range of -30º to +30º. The base machine is equipped in such a way to enable precision production with high availability. Partial enclosure, direct position measuring systems for all axes except rotary axes, and an air-conditioned control cabinet are just as necessary in our opinion and are therefore included as standard equipment, as are chip conveyors, a cooling lubricant filter system, and vibration-damping installation elements.

The basic machine: precise and robust

The machine bed of the moving-column machine is a ribbed welded design. The generously dimensioned guideways for linear axes X, Y, and Z are centrally lubricated. Solid steel covers protect the guideways of linear axes X and Y.

Control: Innovative system platform

A 840D sl Siemens control with Sinamics-drives in a Rittal conditioning cabinet is used. The user-friendly User Interface guarantees easy and comfortable machine operations.


Non-stop production

Loading during primary processing time by pendular processing, optionally with partition.

Highest dynamic

State-of-the-art linear drive technology ensures increased productivity.

Precise incremental measuring system


With the sophisticated operating concept ergonomic handling and short training units are possible.

  • Equipped for teleservice
  • Special user interface for different gearing and workpieces types

details and optional equipme
