New Vertical Twin-Spindle Machining Centre
- Published: October 5, 2017
CHIRON has introduced its new vertical twin spindle five axis machining centre, DZ08 FX Precision+.
The machine includes contact-free linear direct drives in the X/Y/Z axes. These drives bring the spindles faster to optimum feed rates and permit increased traverse rates. Compared to the previous model, this machining center produces aluminum components 20 to 50 percent faster.
The Chiron Series 08 machining centers offer a customizable modular design, adding versatility to the machine.
Offers direct path measuring systems in all axes as well. The DZ08 FX Precision+ has two 14kW water-cooled milling spindles which accelerate to 40,000 rpm in only 1.9 s. In rapid feed, they reach a speed of 75 m/min (X/Y) and 100 m/min (Z). The results are chip-to-chip times of about 3.0 s and a tool change in about 0.8 s.
The DZ08 FX can be equipped with a 2-axis rotary tilt table to facilitate fast 5-axis machining.
The compact DZ08 FX Precision+ has a footprint of only 3.1 m2. It can be supplemented with the automation solution VARIOCELL UNO; double-gripper robot and workpiece storage and handling system occupying less than 1 square meter enabling loading and unloading during machining. Up to 12 raw part pallets can be included in the VARIOCELL.
