The next in-house exhibition, the Chiron Open House, will take place from Wednesday, March 18 to Friday, March 20, 2015 in Tuttlingen, Germany. Under the motto “Ahead through variety”, this machine builder will show how machining centers can be flexibly adapted to customized requirements and order-specific tasks using its modular system.
Many practical examples will show how customers are achieving maximum productivity, top machining quality and short throughput times. As a highlight, for the first time, Chiron will present the new generation of the 12-series compact vertical machining centers for efficient complete machining. Like all machines from this product range, this innovation will be demonstrated live in action during the in-house exhibition.
Premiere at the Open House: The new 12 series
The new generation of the compact and multifunctional 12 series will be seen for the first time. It is characterized by its especially rigid and robust design and offers an improved milling and drilling capacity for efficient series production on only 5 square meters of floor space. Size-45 linear guides on all three axes ensure maximum precision and the best machining performance. The spindle power can be as high as 44 kW, reaches maximum speeds of 18,000 rpm and a torque of 59 Nm. Even without using a separate background magazine, there is room for 128 HSK 50 tools for the first time in two magazine shafts for efficient complete machining, twice as many as in the previous model. Chip-to-chip times of 2.4 s show the high dynamics of the new 12 series, of which a single-spindle version can be seen at the Open House.
Practical presentations during these three days will show visitors interesting applications from the various sectors. Throughout the exhibition, employees will be available for company tours, personal discussions and consulting for current projects. The focus will also be on the Compact turning/milling center FZ08 MT, New Medical Technology Center and the baseline solutions. The after-work user meeting with live music from the Chiron Big Band will conclude the in-house exhibition on Friday afternoon.
