Biel, Geneva, La Chaux-de-Fonds: The micro on tour will be stopping in these
cities, where the truck will be transformed into a two-story showroom with
video and product presentations, offering space for presentations on innovative
solutions and face-to-face meetings. Seven partners are on board in addition to
the CHIRON and FACTORY5 brands. The companies all interact perfectly right
along the precision manufacture process chain, just like the components of a

Intec/Z: Digital versions still highly successful
Event organizers in Frankfurt and Leipzig opted for digital
formats, which were very well received: In November 2020, around 9,000
participants from over 100 countries joined Formnext Connect, learning all
about additive manufacturing, the next generation of industrial production.
Examples of new products included the 3D printer AM Cube and, in an exclusive
preview, the latest additive manufacturing project at the CHIRON Group: AM Coating,
an innovative solution for coating brake disks.
trade fair duo Intec/Z also took place in a purely virtual format on March 2
and 3, 2021. More than 2,000 registered visitors took the opportunity to learn
about new developments in the metalworking and supply industry at Intec/Z
connect. The participants spent four hours on average on the platform, watched
keynote speeches in the »Trends in
Manufacturing Technology and the Supply Industry« or »Additive +
Hybrid – Manufacturing in Transition« forums, and
gained interactive insights into current trends through more than 100 exhibitor
Scheibe and Marcus Hansberg from the CHIRON Group sales force were on hand live
from Leipzig and were pleasantly surprised: »The response was fantastic; we were in chats and video
conferences almost non-stop, and the quality of contacts was excellent too«, enthuses Frank Scheibe, Technical Sales/Field
Service at the CHIRON Group.
»Networking three in one« was the slogan of METAV digital
2021, which took place from March 23 to 26, 2021. With a virtual exhibition,
matchmaking, and web sessions, the online trade fair was »very well attended and accessible
from anywhere in the world 24/7,« explains Stephanie Simon, VDW Project Officer
in charge of METAV digital. As with a live event, the visitors could navigate
through two halls and stop to have a closer look at, for example, the CHIRON
Group booth, where the CHIRON DZ 25 P five
axis double-spindle machining center for processing large, complex workpieces was on show, among other exhibits.
from Tuttlingen: 11th Colloquium on Medical Devices
COVID-19 has highlighted the crucial importance of medical engineering,
and how essential it is to ensure products are manufactured under consistently
optimum conditions, using highly secure, reproducible processes. Just as
important is the perfect harmonization of metal cutting technologies and tools,
so that extremely hard materials can be machined precisely and productively.
What form does this harmonization take? That was one of the questions discussed
in presentations and podium discussions at the 11th Colloquium on Medical
Devices of the mav. The topic introduced by Samuel Vuadens, Managing Director of CHIRON
Swiss and the FACTORY5 brand, was »High-Speed
Machining of Medical Microtechnology Parts using the Micro5 Smartmachine.« Andreas
Jenter, VHM Milling Tool Product Manager at Horn, discussed optimized milling
processes with standard and special milling tools in his keynote speech. Ralph
Hufschmied, Managing Director of Hufschmied, spoke about high-efficiency
machining of complex materials. The live-streamed event closed with a virtual
visit to the CHIRON Group's Medical & Precision Technology Center.

International Sales &
Service Meeting (ISSM)
sales staff from all over the world come to Tuttlingen, Germany, for a few days
every spring to find out all about new products, discuss their markets and the
current challenges, and to gain inspiration for success at their sites from
presentations. This year, the ISSM was broadcast live from the studio in
Tuttlingen in two sessions per day, and was simultaneously interpreted into numerous
languages. Interactive presentations, Q&A sessions, and a virtual
get-together in the coffee bar – with stickers sent out in advance for the very
varied cups – allowed the participants to almost forget that they could only
see each other and discuss matters on screen.
