    The Engineering Technology Group (ETG) has now introduced the impressive new Chiron FZ16S 5-axis machining centre with a HSK-A100 spindle. The Chiron FZ16S allows manufacturers to make more parts with greater precision.

    Developed with HSK-A100, this machine is tailored to the high material removal requirements of industry. The powerful main spindle achieves a torque level of 400Nm and is suitable for machining difficult structural components made from titanium or nickel-based alloys like inconel. The particularly large HSK-A100 interface and the proven moving gantry design forms the basis for particularly high machining rates and machining very deep cavities. The powerful drives provide the required dynamics and the new FZ16S impresses in terms of precision thanks to a robust basic design and particularly high thermal stability.

    From a specification perspective, the Chiron FZ16S 5-axis provides a X, Y and Z-axis travel of 660 by 660 by 400mm with a 61kW spindle motor and the HSK-A100. This performance is reinforced by an optional high-speed and high torque 20,000rpm 200Nm HSKA63 that is supplied by a 162 station tool carousel. As with all of its machines, the FZ16S has an industry-leading chip-to-chip time of 2.5 seconds and rapid feed rates of 75m/min. 

    With regards to flexibility, the Chiron FZ16S 5-axis is available with the VariocellPallet for processing small batch sizes more dynamically. The VariocellPallet enables various raw parts to be clamped on a rotary indexing table with up to ten pallets. The handling system supplies raw parts to the machining centre and removes the workpieces together with the pallet following the successful machining process.
