Swiss Screw Machining Services
Swiss type machines are versatile, and with a wide variety of attachments can produce most parts complete making secondary operations unnecessary. What sets a Swiss screw machine apart from other turning equipment is the ability to operate multiple spindles to produce a more complex part more efficiently. Once programmed and set-up, the machine requires minimal operator attendance, with the use of automatic bar loaders for our higher production jobs.
The raw bar stock material ranging from sizes up to 1-1/4 inch diameter turns much as it would in a lathe to provide superior finishes on tight tolerances. The material is then fed through a guide bushing, which is usually made of carbide. The bushing is adjusted so that the material can slide through it, but tight enough to keep the material from flexing away from the cutting tool. The guide bushing allows Swiss-type screw machines to hold very tight tolerances (+/- .0001″) over long lengths in relation to part diameter.
For example, if you needed to turn a .100″ diameter over a 3″ length, a Swiss-type screw machine is the only way to do this. On a conventional lathe the material would bend away from the cutting tool. There are many things that make a Swiss unique and possibly the best fit for your part to produce the highest quality and most competitively priced part.
