Your first port of call for all materials

Feinmechanik Lothar Kahl in western Hamburg, Germany is one of the first ports of call for complex part production and component assembly. The products supplied by the family-run contract manufacturer are high-end. And the way it masters a wide variety of workpieces can be described as »state-of-the-art«. An automated five-axis machining center from 15 Series of the CHIRON Group is a recent addition.

Alexander Jarck, responsible for the CNC milling sector at Kahl, explains why the 15 Series is currently popular at Kahl as follows: »The machining centers are fast, versatile in use, easy to set up and precise and they provide process stability«. The new FZ 15 S five axis in the expansion stage with five-axis simultaneous machining and automation was a stated aim in the requirements specification and also embodies the production strategy of Kahl in a forward-looking way.

»Even if we're experiencing practically no staff turnover, we too are feeling the shortage of skilled workers and young talent. Using process digitalization and an automated production solution like the new FZ 15 S five axis, we are well able to withstand this and continue to guarantee high quality and productivity«, says Wulf Peter Kahl, Managing Director of Kahl, in justification of the decision. He adds with a smile: »Even if the price of the machine was higher than that of the competition, the solution from the CHIRON Group was ultimately the more reliable and more versatile one«.
