turning CNC machines were born out of Swiss watchmakers’ need
to manufacture complex parts with high precision, tight tolerances, and
repeatability. A Swiss lathe’s design feeds material through a
guide bushing and past the tooling, which provides maximum part
support, lessening deflection and vibration and thus contributing to its
ability to hold tight tolerances on long turns while achieving superior
surface finishes. Simultaneous back-working and cross-working
operations decrease cycle time by allowing for combined milling and
turning operations in one machine with one set-up.
multi-axis CNC Swiss lathes allow for the precision machining of a wide
array of geometries in quantities that range from small release jobs to
annual production runs. Our Swiss capabilities include:
- Working diameters from 0.125" to 1.250"
- Ability to hold tolerances up to 0.0003"
- Part lengths up to 7' long
- Surface finishes of 16 RMS
