CHIRON Group to attend EMO 2019

From the 6th to the 21st of September 2019, CHIRON Group will be attending EMO at Hanover. Here they will take the opportunity to showcase a wide range of the latest in CNC specialisation and automation.

Unveiled for the first time will be new machining centres from CHIRON, STAMA and SCHERER, as well as new automation solutions and an extended software program.


For the first time in the public eye, CHIRON will be combining the new FZ 16 S five-axis with the VariocellPallet automation system, which aims at machining small batches and complex workpieces autonomously. In addition, the new DZ 16 W five-axis will be displayed live in action in Hanover, having previously impressed viewers at the CHIRON Open House event.

Celebrating its world premiere at EMO, the CHIRON DZ 25 P five-axis will be unveiled to the public for the first time. The DZ 25 P was designed with the production of large automotive and aviation components in mind.

With the development of the 25 series, CHIRON is achieving new levels of combined productivity, precision and flexibility that has never been seen before in its class. With a spindle distance of 800 millimetres, the DZ 25 P five-axis is predestined for double-spindle machining of aluminium structural components.

Being operated and loaded on two different sides, the DZ 25 P five-axis allows for perfect access to the work area as well as a clear insight into the process. A compact design also means that the unit consumes minimal floor space.


STAMA continues to set industry benchmarks with their MT 7 and MT 8 systems, and since September 2018, STAMA have been offering customers the MT 733 series. Now, STAMA will unveil an update to this with the MT733 one plus debuting at Hanover.

Like all models of the MT 733 series, it has a gantry design: this allows the machining process to gain a significant amount of stability on a thermal, mechanical and static level.

The Galaxie® drive system in the B-axis bolsters this effect with its extreme power density, stiffness and positioning precision. The final result is highly dynamic and highly precise milling/turning and drilling operations, simultaneous 5-axis machining and integrated automation.


SCHERER will be impressing crowds with their selection of industry-leading turning solutions. Taking centre stage will be the VDZ 320 multi-functional vertical pickup turning machining centre.

The VDZ is able to be adapted to specific customer needs, providing in almost all situations the perfect turning solution through the application of a wide range of applicable extras. Included in these are an extra milling spindle and special modules for ball turning and bearing track milling and hobbing.


An alternative to the refitting of an entire facility is the retrofitting of outdated machinery with new automation equipment. This is exactly what CMS specialises in.

Retrofitting presents a cost-effective and efficient means of bringing outdated facilities more in line with modern standards.


CHIRON’s portfolio of SmartLine software is due to be expanded this year also, with the inclusion of ConditionLine and ProtectLine, each able to be implemented individually or together.

ConditionLine enables the precise planning of maintenance work and repairs, able to detect abnormal operating behaviour and wear in a timely manner.

ProtectLine makes use of a digital twin to prevent physical machining centres from colliding. This digital twin is able to run ahead of its physical counterpart and shut the machine down if it foresees a collision.
