Compact Gantry Milling Machine

Thermosymmetrical machine design. For high-performance heavy-duty cutting of high-strength materials.

Compact Gantry Milling Machine Endura® 7000LINEAR

The ENDURA® 7000LINEAR is an overhead tool milling machine, specially designed for the heavy-duty rough machining of solid and high-strength materials. It has a dimensionally stable and compact design. This not only means a large processing volume with a relatively small footprint, but also that the machine does not need to be placed on foundations.

This compact tool milling machine ENDURA® 7000LINEAR was specially developed for the tool and mould construction, for a highly productive roughing, semi-finishing and finishing application of the customary high-strength material



Due to its high-dynamic features, the machine is particularly suitable for the high-efficiency machining in the field of 2,5 D, for processing ruled geometries, cutting contours, pockets, surfaces, drill holes, threads and spindle operations. In the field of 3D, the ENDURA® 7000LINEAR offers highest dynamics in its class, both in 3-axes as in 5-axes machining, from roughing to high precision processing with best surface results and an excellent dimensional accuracy.

During the machine’s new development, our top priority was the well-known, FOOKE-typical aspect of “excellent quality of motion control, coupled with highest accuracy of the "Tool Center Point”


The use of linear motors in specially designed machine structural elements enables the machine to be optimally controlled, minimises contouring errors and offers the highest line speeds. This gives rise to excellent motion dynamics, especially with inconstant geometric pathways.

The robust and weight-optimised design coupled with the use of vibration-damping casting materials in suitable structural components means that the vibrational excitations caused by the milling process and the directional-change-induced movements are vastly reduced/dampened.

Features, technology and equipment:

  • Highly dynamic GANTRY-high bed tool milling machine in compact construction:
    Gantry moving in X-direction.
  • Design of the machine:
    Machine bed (X-axis), travel beam (Z-axis) and cross slide made in solid casting; side walls and gantry (Y-axis) as steel-welded construction.
  • No foundation required:
    Due to the inherently rigid machine bed, a standard industrial floor, approx. 300 mm thick, steel-reinforced, is sufficient for the installation; a special foundation, is not required. The machine is set up and aligned by fixators bolted to the hall floor.
  • Drive technology of linear axes:
    Water-cooled linear motors in the linear axes (X, Y and Z), X axis designed as a GANTRY axes pair.
  • Direct measuring systems:
    The linear and rotary axes are equipped with direct measuring systems.
  • Z-axis weight compensation:
    Highly dynamic pneumatic cylinders support the Z-axis drive.
  • Direct measuring systems:
    The linear and rotary axes are equipped with direct measuring systems.
  • Linear axes guides:
    The linear axes are equipped with hardened and ground, backlash-free pre-tensioned guide elements.
