CHIRON MillTurn - Double productivity by simultaneous milling and turning

At CHIRON, MT stands for „MillTurn“ and offers twice the productivity in the smallest space. Whether medical, precision technology, aerospace, mechanical engineering or automotive – the MT’s high-quality, precision machining shortens processing times, produces excellent surfaces and compresses your manufacturing process while saving considerable resources. The CHIRON Mill TURN technology allows simultaneous milling and turning operations for complex work pieces. These machines are characterized by a compact design, and are ideally suited for the complete machining of bar material - unbeatable when it comes to short lead times and high retooling.

The modular assembly of the FZ08 MT and FZ12 MT with swivel head, turning  spindle, tool revolver and optional opposed spindle enables customer-specific configuration of the machining centres and their use in many fields.
