Understanding Swiss-Type Machining
Once seen as a specialty machine tool, the CNC Swiss-type is increasingly being used in shops that are full of more conventional CNC machines. For the newcomer to Swiss-type machining, here is what the learning curve is like.
Swiss-Type Lathe for Micro Components
Tsugami’s PO3 Swiss-turn CNC precision automatic lathe is capable of producing precision parts ranging from 0.5 to 3 mm in diameter and ranging to 40 mm (1.57") in length.
“Touch Once” Theme in Tsugami’s Booth
One of the outstanding capabilities of CNC Swiss-type machines is their ability to produce complex parts complete in a single handling. In an effort to emphasis this capability, Tsugami has adopted the theme “touch-once” manufacturing in its IMTS Booth S-9410.
32-mm Swiss-Type Converts to Chucker
Thee B0326 Swiss-type lathe is a 6-axis, 32-mm machine featuring a chucker kit that enables users to operate without a guide bushing or bar feeder.
Swiss-Turns Meet Part Variation Needs
REM Sales offers the Tsugami B0125 and B0205 Swiss-type automatic lathes.
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.
New to Swiss-Types? You’re Not Alone
As builders push Swiss-type lathes to new levels of versatility, increasing numbers of job shops are adopting these machines for the first time.
Swiss-Type Sculpting Serves Complex Parts Complete
With capability for continuous cutting using a swiveling B axis tool post, this Swiss-type lathe enables users to machine complex, sculpted geometry without moving parts to another machine.
5-Axis Swiss Turning Machine
The Tsugami B0 385 38-mm, five-axis, Swiss-type turning center has an integral double spindle and capacity to hold 20-mm-diameter turning tools.
Recognizing the Swiss Advantage
A growing number of job shops have realized that multifunction Swiss-type lathes can make them more competitive. This Ohio shop explains how and why it integrated its first Swiss-types and shares some of what it has learned along the way.
Automotive Machining in Motion
A number of videos showing innovative ways to manufacture automotive components has recently been added to MMS Online. Read about the technologies here and then click to see them in action.
Automatic Lathe and Swiss Turning Machines
Tsugami offers the S206 20-mm CNC precision automatic lathe with backworking Y axis.
More In The Know
This shop is in the early stages of integrating Internet-based training tailored specifically to the brand of Swiss-type lathes it uses. The goal is to bring prospective employees up to speed quicker while enabling existing employees to progress to more advanced roles in the shop.
Swiss-Type Turning Enables Faster, More Efficient Machining
Prince Industries, a manufacturer of precision-machined components, says it strives to exceed the needs and expectations of its customers, employees and suppliers by continuously improving virtually every aspect of its operations. Continuous improvement is not just a mantra at Prince; rather, it is the driving force behind the company’s growth.
New Borders For Swiss-Type Turning
The traditional niche may be too narrow. This shop uses sliding-headstock lathes for jobs that wouldn't normally be run on this type of machine.
The capability to perform multiple operations, including backworking, makes these machines attractive for complex, short parts like this airbag component.
