Highly productive complete systems

for automated turning and milling from one source

Since CHIRON Werke GmbH & Co. KG aquiredthe majority share of SCHERER Feinbau GmbH,the successful manufacturer of vertical turningmachines, in October, 2012, the efforts regardingjoint projects are in full swing.

Due to similar industries and business segments, synergies in turning and milling are inevitable, and these are also linked. First joint projects with CHIRON as the general contractor show that great added value can be offered to our customers.

Advantages can be found in many ways: Fewerinterfaces, everything from a single source, anda single contact person are the interdisciplinaryadvantages.Further synergies of this partnership emerge asfollows for our customers:

  • Work operations are optimally coordinated – cycle times are optimised for maximum output
  • Savings through common use of units (e.g., coolant treatment and cooling, extraction)
  • Savings regarding additional resources such as energy, personnel, or area

Parts requiring both turning and milling are ideal for concatenated production. In addition, boring or threading operations are often performed. But secondary production operations such as cleaning, balancing, measuring or marking can also be integrated in the CHIRON-SCHERER systems.
