Housings for electric motors and transmissions, oil sumps,
chassis components: Just like for large high-precision mechanical products,
such as cooling elements or distributor housings, the following used to be
true: High precision takes time. And high dynamics come at the expense of
precision. The new CHIRON series 22 tackles this contradiction convincingly.
The basis for the innovative machine concept with small
footprint of around 25 m2 is – like series 16 – a machine platform
in a moving gantry design. The rigid machine bed and active component cooling
enable the required degree of precision on the workpiece. High axis
acceleration and fast rapid traverses ensure dynamic machining as never before seen with
workpiece dimensions of this size.
In addition to precision and dynamics, series 22 also
offers impressive flexibility. From very complex workpieces or product series
with many different tools: The magazines offer space for up to 77 pieces and,
thanks to the integrated workpiece changer, the workpieces are loaded and
unloaded during machining operation and therefore extremely productively.
Two spindles –
one fast, one strong
Depending on the processing task, two different main
spindles are used in series 22: One fast spindle with a speed of up to 20,000
rpm and a torque of up to 110 Nm for workpieces made of aluminum or aluminum
alloys. And a strong spindle with a speed of up to 12,500 rpm and a maximum
torque of 200 Nm for hard materials and large tools.
The working areas is easily accessible, and the process
easy to see thanks to the large glazed doors. The control panel is located
directly next to the working area, making set-up easier. The new machines are
operated easily and according to context via the TouchLine operating system.
On the back, the tools are inserted in the chain magazine,
and the tool data can be entered here directly via the operating console.
Tool replacement is carried out during machine operation;
the new tool is clicked into the magazine with a single movement of the hand.
for application-oriented configuration
Series 22 is available with two drives: A ball screw drive
or a linear direct drive. You can also choose from two plate variants: A
suspension plate for four-axis machining or two face plates for five-axis
simultaneous machining. All
models can also be supplemented according to the application – e.g. with
a cooling system, suction unit, chip conveyor, individual tool packages. To
increase the degree of use, the specialists at CHIRON develop individual
automation solutions together with the customer.
To tap the full potential of digitalized production, series
22 is prepared for the integration of various SmartLine modules – for a clear
plus in terms of productivity, product quality and machine availability.

preparation and during running operation
the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE
The new series celebrates its premiere
in May in a new way - at the OPEN HOUSE ONLINE. Here, CHIRON will inform you
about the highlights of the DZ 22 W five axis and demonstrate the machining
centre live under cutting.
