Chiron 's Series 22 combines high-speed and high-precision processing Click image to enlargeThe new twin-spindle DZ Series 22 from Chiron rapidly machines complex, large workpieces, including housings for electric motors and transmissions, oil pumps, chassis components, and more. The company also offers a four axis variant of the Series 22.

The Series 22 combines high-speed and high-precision processing for complete production of even large, high-precision components. Featuring two workpiece-changing table variants, part capacities are generous - the 4-axis trunnion plate version handles 680 mm x 1,330 mm dia., up to 600 kg; and the twin-spindle five axis version handles 2 x 599 mm x 340 mm dia., up to 150 kg.

The moving gantry design is key to the keeping tis machine on a small footprint. The rigid machine bed and active component cooling enable the required degree of precision on the workpiece. High acceleration—X-Y-Z max. 10-10-17 m/s²— in all axes and rapid response to programming inputs ensure dynamic machining. Axis travel distances are X-Y-Z max. 620-650-600 mm and rapid traverse speeds X-Y-Z max. up to 120-120-90 m/min.

The magazines offer space for up to 77 tools and the integrated workpiece changer enables loading and unloading of workpieces during machining, saving cycle time. Tool change time from chip-to-chip is a little more than three seconds.

Two different main spindles are used in Series 22: a fast spindle with a speed of up to 20,000 rpm and a torque of up to 137 Nm for aluminum or aluminum alloys, or 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 22 series is also available as an HSK-A100 machine for further stability and performance.
