Chiron Group Acquires Mecatis

The Chiron Group, Tuttlingen, Germany, has acquired Mecatis SA with headquarters in Isérables, Switzerland. Mecatis specializes in small, high-precision, high-speed 4- and 5-axis machining centers and complementary automation, used mainly in the watch and jewelry industry.

Mecatis, founded in 2007, designs, builds and maintains machining centers for the high-speed cutting of microtechnical components. The highlight of the product range is the Micro5, launched in 2017, a compact machining center with 4 or 5 axes, which customers use for the rapid, high precision production of components for the Swiss watch and jewelry industry. The Micro5 offers high static stiffness 2x10^6 N/m, repeatability of 0.5 µm and target accuracy of 2 µm. "With excellent thermal stability, very high dynamic rigidity and acceleration of 2g, the compact machine is made for HSM," said a company spokesperson.

Mecatis machining centers will be sold worldwide by the Chiron Group. The entire service network of the corporate group will also be available to Mecatis customers.

"The high-precision machining centers from Mecatis perfectly complement the Chiron product range below the 08 series, which handles a work cube of 450 mm x 270 mm x 360 mm. With them, we are strengthening our offering to the precision and medical technology industries. This means that we can now optimally meet the demands of many customers for compact, highly dynamic machines for extremely small, high precision components," explained Dr. Claus Eppler, Managing Director R&D at Chiron.
