Fidia’s GTF line of Gantry Type High Speed Machining Centres is characterised by its incredible versatility. Designed and built using an innovative modular structure, and taking advantage from a combination of components conveniently selected according to weight, rigidity and cost, the GTF range becomes the ideal solution to meet and exceed your customers’ engineering requirements.
With the well-balanced and proportional dimensions of the GTF line of gantry type high speed machining centres, and in accordance with the concept of thermo-symmetry, the machines are perfectly matched with the extremely dynamic linear axes. Racks & Pinions, driven by double motors and with variable preloads, ensure the total absence of backlash.
The integrated Fidia Technology system on the GTF line of gantry type high speed machining centres, which includes both drives and numerical controls (C20 and C40 Vision), offers the most powerful and high-performing equipment for advanced CNC high-speed multi-axis machining applications especially for, and demanded by, the aerospace, aeronautical and automotive industries.
The automotive industry requires the most powerful and highly accurate CNC milling machines to mill both steel and cast-iron dies from the roughing operation to the final super-finishing process. Thanks to Fidia’s GTF machining centres’ fixed-table upper-gantry configuration, manual polishing can mostly be avoided and all operations can be carried out with a single set-up of the workpiece. The most complex machining areas of the component are attained by an appropriate choice of heads and milling accessories.
Plastic Injection and Die-Casting
The unique design of the Bi-Rotary head of the Fidia GTF range of gantry type high speed machining centres reduces the tool length, which negates vibration and thus improves the finished surface quality. The use of direct encoders and complete thermal control of the structures allows for the highest possible accuracy during the long milling cycle-times required by these complex engineering applications.
Prototyping and Styling
The complex machining of full-scale models, the construction of prototyping moulds and quality control gauges are the perfect environment for the Fidia GTF line of gantry type high speed machining centres. The XYZ Axes’ high-dynamic accuracy and the compact size of the M5A & M5C Heads, elevate the GTF range of machining centres to the very highest level of performance metrics, surpassing the competition.
