Complete six-side machining with the new 715 Series from the CHIRON Group

Here is the compact CHIRON FZ 08 S mill turn precision+ for multifunctional machining of small and medium batches of bars or chuck parts. There is the STAMA Series MT 733 milling-turning center with integrated automation, for flexible series production from a batch size of one. And between the two is the new 715 Series from the CHIRON Group. A platform boasting two designs and a multitude of options to tailor the configuration, as well as high autonomy. The common denominator? Machining off the bar.

Of course, in the CHIRON Group portfolio there are a range of options for machining workpieces with up to a 200 mm diameter and a length of up to 500 mm, for milling and turning off the bar, or milling off the bar or from profile. The new 715 Series, which will be in action for the first time at the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE in June, combines all these options into one machining platform. It even includes the tried-and-tested FZ 08 S mill turn precision+ concept. It combines speed and precision in complete machining, rounded off with an integrated automation concept. Now, it’s one size bigger.

The 715 Series is ideal for use in the medical technology, aerospace, energy, automobile and commercial vehicle industries. Matthias Efinger, Systems Engineer R&D, says the goal during development was »to create a machining center designed for autonomous processing on all six sides, rounding off the CHIRON Group bar machining portfolio and fully bridging the gap between the FZ 08 S mill turn precision+ and MT 733.«

The benefits at a glance:

  • Multifunctional machining in one machine

  • One unit comprising a base machine and workpiece automation

  • Short lead times and high level of autonomy thanks to six-sided complete machining

  • Full turning function thanks to rotary spindles and a clamp-able milling spindle with 20,000 rpm

  • Direct-drive torque swivel head, optimized for five-axis simultaneous machining

  • Opposed spindle with identical power to the main spindle for machining on the back

  • Automation with bars up to Ø 65 mm or chuck parts up to Ø 200 mm, maximum workpiece weight 20 kg

  • Storage capacity for up to 128 tools

  • Loading and unloading of the tool magazine during machine operation

  • Ready to integrate SmartLine

»The 715 Series really completes our bar machining portfolio and offers our customers a machining center that is precisely designed for autonomous machining on all six sides.«

This one or that one? The perfect machining model
There are two versions of the new series: MT for Mill Turn, MP for Multi Profile. Both versions have four configuration stages for milling and turning operations in any order. The swivel head, rotary spindle and opposing spindle enable continuous multifunctional machining on all six sides. Both ensure high reliability and quality, for example for hip stems, turbine blades, extrusions for chassis or battery storage.

The best conditions for high levels of automation
Both versions of the machine offer integrated workpiece handling and a magazine for up to 128 tools to allow automated manufacturing of workpieces in small and medium batches. Paired with the vigor you expect from CHIRON, with additional unmanned shifts – late shift and weekends – the productivity of the system can be greatly increased while simultaneously reducing costs.

Presentation at the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE
The new series will make its first appearance in June at the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE. At the OPEN HOUSE, the CHIRON Group will go in-depth on all of the MT 715’s highlights and show the machining center live, in action.
