Chiron Group has introduced the DZ 28 twin-spindle vertical machining centers.

The new VMCs feature 1,200mm spindle clearance and tool magazines with space for up to 60 tools.

The new VMCs are targeted at automotive and aerospace applications, which demand dynamic, precise, and highly productive complete machining processes for their larger structural parts, Chiron says.

“With the 28 Series, we are addressing new customers and workpieces,” said Kristoffer Siegmann, head of global account management automotive at Chiron Group. “Previously, only single-spindle manufacturing could be used for components of this size, but the new DZ 28 twin-spindle machines permit considerably shorter cycle times—while delivering optimum part quality.”

There are two versions of the twin-spindle machining center available: the DZ 28 P five-axis with pallet changer for high quantities and short cycle times, and the DZ 28 S five axis for direct loading.

This new machining center series can be flexibly configured to completely machine larger-sized structural parts which require maximum surface quality and dimensional accuracy, as well as high production rates and minimal downtime. The machines offer compact layout, available robot or gantry automation, and fully independent Z and X-direction spindles
