It looks like an Imperial Walker straight out of Star Wars.  But this behemoth’s even more handy, especially if you’re taking on the Rebel Alliance.  With it, you can build all sorts of incredible machines, including Death Stars, that will help you dominate the galaxy… or at least make a fortune in modern manufacturing and dominate the market.

FERMAT’s creating this gargantuan machine tool in its central manufacturing and assembly halls in Brno.  Scheduled to be unleashed upon the world by early 2019, it’ll march forth across snowy fields, or ones in early bloom, in immense proportions, impressing the troops with an X axis of 20 meters and a Y axis of 7.8 meters.   With a spindle diameter of 160 mm, spindle travel of 1 meter, and a Z axis (ram stroke) of 2 meters, FERMAT’s monster gantry will annihilate unwanted iron and steel deep into the center of massive workpieces.

Outfitted with 2 of FERMAT’s specially-designed servo-drive universal automatic milling heads (indexing 0.001°/0.001°) and a robot tool changer with 140 tools, it delivers a quick and decisive knock-out punch to even the toughest machining challenges.  The Rebel Alliance doesn’t stand a chance!
