2019 Events

Keller USA at Zimmermann Open House

Keller USA, Inc. partnered with Zimmermann, Inc. for their Hall of Champions, first open house in Wixom, MI.  Zimmermann hit it out of the park with their FZ33 Compact, 5-axis portal milling machine. With its sleek design and precise process the FZ33 Compact is perfect for machining aluminum and composite materials. To compliment the machine’s effectiveness for wet machining, Keller paired the ENA-S, a mist collection system designed with individual machining centers in mind. The ENA-S provides a four-stage filtration which cleans dirty air using a combination of inertia, screening effect, coalescence, and diffusion, all with a low noise level, < 72 dB(A), and ergonomic floor-access to all filtration stages.
