New machining centers increase productivity and precision
The CHIRON DZ 22 W five axis with a spindle distance of 600 millimetres was developed in response to current customer requirements from the automotive industry. It convinces with its precision, dynamics and high technical availability, and plays out its strengths especially in the complete machining of large-volume components.
The combination of the CHIRON DZ 16 W with the compact VariocellUno automation unit enables a particularly productive exchange of raw part and finished part pallets during machining in series production, and makes it possible to machine many workpieces in very short cycle times.

- CHIRON DZ 16 W: Faster series production with VariocellUno
CHIRON DZ 22 W five axis: Maximum precision for large components
The new CHIRON 22 series celebrated its global debut at the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE – one of the first online in-house exhibition for mechanical engineering.
The DZ 22 W five axis with a spindle distance of 600 mm is based on the same machine platform as the proven 16 series and was developed in response to current customer requirements in the automotive industry. It boasts precise, dynamic machining, high technical availability and is particularly impressive in the complete machining of large steel and aluminum components, such as electric motor and transmission housings, oil sumps or chassis components.
High productivity and minimum setup when producing complex workpieces
Thanks to the proven moving gantry design, a particularly rigid machine bed and active component cooling, the DZ 22 W five axis achieves a high level of precision even for very large components. Short cycle times are effortlessly achieved with high axis acceleration, short changeover times and rapid traverse speeds. The integrated workpiece changing device, which enables blanks and finished parts to be loaded and unloaded during machine operation, further increases productivity. The two sets of 77 tools in the magazine can be used to machine workpiece families as well as complex workpieces with minimum setup. Two different main spindles are used depending on the task: A high-speed spindle for workpieces made from aluminum or aluminum alloys and a high-torque spindle for large tools and hard-to-machine materials. All additional units, for example the cooling, hydraulic or extraction systems, are integrated in the machine so that they take up very little space. The 22 series is available in different configurations: As a DZ 22 S version with direct loading or as an HSK-A100 machine. Customers can choose between a ball screw drive and a linear direct drive. There are also plate variants available for four-axis or five-axis machining.
CHIRON FZ 16 S five axis now with HSK-A100: Maximum efficiency for the aviation industry
The demanding machining applications in the aviation industry, where components are mostly machined from a solid block, require machining centers that combine optimum milling performance with maximum precision. The new CHIRON FZ 16 S five axis with HSK-A100 is tailored to the high requirements of this industry. It has a powerful main spindle with a torque of 400 Nm and is predestined for machining difficult structural components made from titanium or nickel-based alloys like INCONEL. The particularly large HSK-A100 interface and the proven moving gantry design, which ensures high static and dynamic rigidity, form the basis for particularly high machining rates and machining very deep cavities. The powerful drives of the machining center provide the required dynamics. The new FZ 16 S five axis with HSK-A100 also impresses in terms of precision thanks to a robust basic design and particularly high thermal stability.
CHIRON DZ 16 W now with VariocellUno
At the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE, CHIRON presented the 16 series with the compact VariocellUno automation unit, comprising a handling robot and workpiece store, for the first time. The new version was designed for a particularly productive exchange of blank and finished-part pallets during machine operation in series production and makes it possible to machine a large number of workpieces in very short cycle times. The workpieces are handled by a six-axis robot on the DZ 16 W. A variety of standardized options support operators in interpreting and implementing project-specific requirements. The new machining center with automation is available with drawer storage, palletizer or workpiece conveyor belt depending on individual customer requirements. A large rotating door makes the machine's working area very easy to access. The automation cell can also be moved for setup and maintenance work. The compact automation unit can be retrofitted and is also available for the STAMA MC531.
