Company Profile

Tornos' origins go back to 1880, when the company produced the first machines used to turn the small parts needed for the watch-making industry in the Moutier region of Switzerland. In the 1960's and 70's, three local companies - Tornos, Bechler and Petermann – merged to form one single group called Tornos-Bechler, whose reputation in world markets soon rose. Since the 90s, Tornos has been looking towards the future, and is now one of the leading companies in the small parts turning industry. With its DECO 2000 concept, the company provides the market with radically new solutions and unrivaled performance. Tornos achieves roughly 90% of its turnover by exporting to countries in Europe outside of Switzerland, the United States and Asia.

TORNOS: Global Sales Network

As seen in MMS

Machining Micro Parts for Medical
This shop’s micromachining needs, primarily for medical components, ultimately led to the development of a new multifunction turning center platform geared toward producing tiny parts complete.

Swiss-Type Entry-Level Machine Offers Flexibility
Tornos offers its CT 20 entry-level bar turning machine, designed for creating simple to moderately complex components.

Entry-Level Machine Supports Thread-Whirling Operations
Tornos’ CT 20 automatic turning machine is equipped with a sliding headstock and accommodates 20-mm bars.

Multi-Spindle Turning Centers Offered
Tornos offers a range of multi-spindle turning centers, including the MultiSwiss, MultiAlpha, MultiSigma and SAS lines.

Swiss Center Brings Paper Punching Work In-House
With a Tornos Swiss ST starter machine, Performance Design brought paper-punching component production in-house and reduce overhead costs by 66 percent.

Tornos Swiss ST26 Offers Turnkey Equipment Packs
The Swiss ST 26 high performance Swiss-type turning center from Tornos features seven linear axes.

CNC Horizontal Bar Milling Machine with Turn-Mill Capability
Tornos’ Almac FB 1005 CNC horizontal bar milling machine is capable of machining on as many as six axes with 19 live spindles.

New and Different—Really
“New” and “different” are often overused terms, but a new multi-spindle machine introduced by Tornos at this year’s IMTS (Booth S-8666) does fit the description. The Multi-Swiss is a six-spindle multi machine with the additional wrinkle of providing sliding headstock capability on all six spindles.

Turning Center with Six Sliding Headstocks
Tornos' MultiSwiss features the production capability of a six-spindle CNC and the sliding headstock feed of a Swiss-type, single-spindle turning center.

Advancing Manufacturing, Tomorrow and Today
A drilling solution improves the production of a component that is critical for correcting spinal disorders. Meanwhile, an apprenticeship program ensures that improvements like this one can continue into the future.

Tornos President Steps Down
Machine tool supplier Tornos US (Lombard, Illinois) has accepted the resignation of company president Scott Kowalski.

Single-Spindle Turning Machine and More
The EvoDeco single-spindle turning machine offers fully synchronous drives with acceleration/deceleration to reduce cycle times for parts that require a lot of stopping.

Rigid, Single-Spindle Turning Center
Based on the company’s DECO a-line machines, the new EvoDECO line offers high rigidity and powerful spindles.

Turn 1" Barstock
The Sigma 20, a high-speed sliding headstock turning center, is designed with the flexibility required in a job shop environment. This machine can turn simple to moderately complex parts. The counterspindle is as powerful as the main spindle, allowing operators to perform simultaneous machining to minimize cycle times, the company says.

Turn Parts With Simple Geometries
The Delta Swiss-type lathe product line is dedicated to machining parts with simple geometries. These machines feature a cast iron base, a large-capacity chip pan and a wide working area. The machines can be customized to work with or without a guide bushing, and they can use rotating tools.

Consider Swiss-Types For Medical Opportunities
Adopting the latest machining technologies is key for shops to accurately and repeatably create medical components. Swiss-style lathes offer a good combination of precision and repeatability for these applications thanks in part to their guide-bushing design, which provides support for the workpieces very close to the cut.

Coil-Fed Turning Machine Designed For Small Parts

Achieve Burr-Free Threads, No Secondary Finishing Required

A Lathe That Doesn't Turn The Workpiece
Rather than rotating the workpiece, an Escomatic lathe rotates a toolhead around material that is held stationary in a guide bushing. This configuration allows workpiece stock to be fed as bars or coils for long periods of uninterrupted operation.
