Excellent dynamics and high precision

The F-series sets standards in the machining of large and heavy workpieces. Thanks to the moving column design, the excellent dynamics are also maintained even if heavy components are clamped. With standard direct measuring systems in all axes and latest generation drive technology, the Forte 7 machining centres represent high-precision machining in addition to high contour accuracy and surface quality. The Eco Mode energy-saving function saves the bigger part of the idle power as standard by automatically shutting down standby consumers.

Large workspace despite small dimensions

With X-traverse paths of 1600, 2600, 3200 and 4000 mm, the F-series offers a wide range of machining options especially for long part machining or pendulum operation. Thanks to a workspace divider plate which is available from 2600 mm upwards, the ability to set up parallel to machining means that unproductive downtimes are a thing of the past. At 4905 till 8400 mm in length, the machining centres even fit in smaller factory workshops.

Adaptable to a variety of requirements

The F-series can be tailored precisely to meet the customer’s requirements with an extensive range of options: with 3D toolmaking coordination for short machining times or higher workpiece quality, with zero-point clamping systems for short setup times or with the standby tool magazine for up to 190 additional tool spaces.
