CHIRON didn't start off making CNC machine tools. The company first manufactured surgical instruments when it was founded in 1921 and then experimented with other products like compressors, paint guns and road marking equipment until 1958, when they started manufacturing component parts for drilling, milling and thread cutting. It wasn't until the mid 1970s that CHIRON began manufacturing machining centers in earnest.
CHIRON has won multiple awards for innovation and quality in the manufacturing space. Among the award winning innovations were the four spindle TZ 12K W machining center and the FZ 08.2 chip-producing machine tool. Today, CHIRON continues to improve its machine tool technology and push the industry forward. CHIRON machines are commonly used in the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries.

CHIRON vertical lathes have an excellent reputation for quality and accuracy, thanks to several innovations available on most machines from their line. When shopping for a used CHIRON machine tool, check to see if the machine being offered has upgrades like 5-axis machining, rotary spindle tables, and multiple spindles.
CHIRON machine tools are multi-functional units ideal for profile machining. They integrate all CNC processes into the same machine: thread-cutting, milling, turning, drilling, sawing and counter-sinking. This makes CHIRON machines suitable for both small- and large-scale projects.
CHIRON machines can be upgraded to 5-axis machine tools that are perfect for 5-axis milling and CNC cutting applications. Positioning is much more precise and can be performed simultaneously while the machine is in operation. It comes integrated with a 2-axis rotary swivel table with direct angle measurement systems.
Seconds ahead is CHIRON's slogan, and encourages the company to make the most efficient machines possible. CHIRON machines employ numerous minor improvements that, when taken together, add up to significant increases in efficiency and time savings.
