Friction stir welding processing center from Chiron

Chiron FZ 15 W: BAZ with integrated friction stir welding functionality

The Series 15 processing centers from Chiron do not just stand for high productivity, speed and reliability with compact dimensions – they also represent some of the world’s finest tool machines of their class. With enormous reserves for heavy-duty CNC milling, plenty of configuration options and additional fixtures, the machines are a match for any task. The modular design means that each Series 15 processing center can be configured into a perfectly customized solution.

The Chiron FZ 15 W model is now available for order, including with an integrated high-quality friction stir welding functionality. Thanks to the native integration of our friction stir welding technology in the factory, there is no need to order an additional machine. And that is not all: in many cases it is not necessary to span the workpiece between the machining and welding processes either. This saves time, space and resources, while simultaneously increasing production efficiency.
