Chiron's 715 Series machining centresClick image to enlargeChiron Group’s 715 Series machining centres are designed for complete machining of all six sides of complex parts, with part handling automation and storage.

The 715 Series is designed for fully automated, complete machining tasks in aerospace, energy, and automotive industries. Part range is bars up to Ø 65 mm or chuck parts up to Ø 200 mm, with maximum workpiece weight of 20 kg.

Two versions of the machining centre are available:  Chiron MT 715 mill turn machine and Chiron MP 715 multi profile machine. They include a direct-drive 20,000 rpm milling head, a horizontal main spindle and a matched, opposing counter spindle to permit continuous multifunctional machining on all six sides of a part in a single setup. This capability is used to machine hip stems, turbine blades, and extrusions for chassis or battery storage.

Both machines accommodate 128 tools and include integrated workpiece handling and workpiece storage.

The new machine platform integrates digital systems from the Chiron SmartLine Portfolio, including automatic condition monitoring, integrated machine and process diagnostics, machining simulation, preventive machine protection in every mode of operation, remote diagnostics and remote maintenance, and intuitive operation.
