FZ 12 Series
Quick, Precise,Compact,
and Multifaceted

The FZ 12 offers the best values with regard to speed and precision.

The superior strength of this series lies in the stable base construction of the solid, robust machine tool design, which has considerable reserve capacity for completing even the most difficult cutting tasks in an ideal way.

The performance values are equally amazing. With chip-to-chip times of 1.9 s (FZ 12 W) and 2.4 s (FZ 12 W MAGNUM), the 12 Series is among the fastest of its class.

The robust construction of the spindle with generously dimensioned bearings and the tool interfaces SK 30, SK 40 or HSK 63 allow for excellent milling performance.

All Chiron machines are based on the vertical moving column principle and offer a series of advantages just from its basic design. The accuracy of the machine is independent of the workpiece weight, so that the highest possible accuracy is always achieved.
