Innovative, informative, live, three letters? OHO!

From 15th to 18th June 2021, for the second time it was »Welcome to the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE live from Tuttlingen, Germany!« Welcome, to an event which elicited one or two appreciative »Ohos!« from the industry visitors. Welcome to machine premiers like the DZ 28 S five axis and the 715 Series, to innovative 360° tours, and to the new, livestreamed Innovation Talks.

Whether experienced in-person or virtually, the CHIRON Group OPEN HOUSE is a platform for innovation and communication for the entire industry. And once again this year, it inspired visitors from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the rest of Europe. It was especially exciting, thanks to the online format, to be able to welcome many guests from the USA to the second OPEN HOUSE ONLINE, giving them the opportunity to see, experience and discover plenty of things to incorporate into their manufacturing practices. We received so much positive feedback from customers, partners and suppliers on the many new innovations and high-quality experiences at the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE 2021. Carsten Liske, CEO of the CHIRON Group, has a positive summary of the event, »Our efforts over the last few months paid off. We have consistently pushed forward with our innovation program, optimized our product portfolio and offer our customers the right answers to their current and future challenges.« 

New perspectives on areas of expertise and machining centers
360° tours allowed visitors to the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE to get an exclusive insight into, for example, the Turnkey Center or the Precision Factory. The new Innovation Talks proved to be another very successful element – with over 2,000 views. These were professionally moderated debates on hot topics such as digitalization, automation, the future of medical and micro technology, additive manufacturing and many more, streamed live from Tuttlingen, Germany

 The CHIRON Group experts and their partners used the live-stream Innovation Talks to discuss innovations and hot topics.

The CHIRON Group also presented the newest machining center in the »fleet«, with expert presentations and all the technical features at a glance. The CHIRON MT 715 two+ for autonomous machining on all six sides generated the most interest, closely followed by the CHIRON DZ 28 S five axis with a spindle distance of 1,200 mm for simple machining of large volume components.

Visitors from the high-precision micro machining sector were most interested in the extremely compact and dynamic Micro5 machining center, presented by Stephan Encke, Sales Manager Aerospace, Medical, Precision Technology:

Another highlight was the CHIRON DZ 16 W five axis with VariocellUno automation unit, a handling robot and workpiece store.

The Additive Manufacturing department presented two new digital systems for the innovative 3D metal printer, the AM Cube. The VisioLine AM and DataLine AM allow targeted analysis and optimization of the laser deposition welding process.

Digital products and services for real added value
Increased efficiency, availability and productivity – the digital systems from the SmartLine portfolio create the conditions to fully exploit the information from machining centers. It makes it easy to recognize tangible potential for manufacturing and enables targeted further development. The SmartLine module also offers the basis for new digital services from the CHIRON Group. These SmartServices enable targeted service provision for increased total-system effectivity and are focused – for maximum effect – on the various phases of machine and system life cycles: Start-up, production and modernization.
