Chiron Group acquires German automation company

Chiron Group acquires German automation companyThe Chiron Group SE has acquired Greidenweis Maschinenbau GmbH, a specialist in automation systems for the automotive industry. As a result, the Chiron Group portfolio — available in the UK from the Wellesbourne-based Engineering Technology Group (ETG) will now offer even more automotive assembly and automation systems.

One of the Chiron Group’s core competencies is turnkey solutions for machining processes based on machining centres and turning centres of the brands Chiron, Stama and Factory5. Chiron said: “The demand to automate turnkey solutions is continuously increasing, as are the workpiece and industry-specific customer requirements.

“This applies to single-part production in tool manufacturing and precision technology, as well as to series production in the mobility sector. The Group’s product range meets diverse automation tasks with integrated automation solutions, autonomous stand-alone solutions, the linking of machining centres and their processes, and system integration in assembly and production lines.”

Greidenweis is a system supplier for the automotive industry, with one example of this being the fully automated complete assembly of components for vehicle interiors using several processing stations. The 60-employee company, which has also successfully installed systems in other industries, is now a 100% Chiron Group company.

The Chiron Group and Greidenweis will each concentrate on the further development of their traditional core businesses, and say their aim is to make machining, assembly, and production processes even more efficient with ‘innovative automation solutions’. This applies to the process automation of large-volume components as well as to complex production lines from the blank through machining and associated processes to end-of-line testing.
