CNC Swiss Turning is a process we offer at Quick Tek Machining and a service that is continuing to progress with updated technology advancements.
Swiss Turning operates by utilizing metal shaping tools that will simultaneously work a piece of metal while it is rotated at an accelerated rate. The many benefits of Swiss Turning has led to consistent ultra-precision on small, complex parts, especially for larger lot sizes. The ability for complex parts to be manufactured on a larger scale for rapid growth in a number of industries.
CNC Swiss Turning is an application that our team at Quick Tek Machining is well versed in the the lathes that we utilize for machining precision parts that have complex profiles and configurations. In turn, this process also enables a number of operations to work in tandem with one another allowing for both ends of a part to be completed in one process using only one setup on a single machine.
CNC Swiss Screw dates back to the watch making industry where it was used for its precision manufacturing. The capabilities of producing intricate pieces in rapid succession result in high production and little margin for error. Compared to machines that are also capable of machining parts with tight tolerance specifications they
While older machines are also capable of machining parts with tight tolerance specifications, they take more time and have limited capabilities leading to longer run times and less consistency from product to product.
Swiss Lathes have an ability to produce multiple finished pieces in just one hour or less, depending on the size and complexity of the piece it is producing.
Backed by the lathe software, the configuration process is much quicker with its simulation capabilities thus creating easier set up time and an ability to spot any errors quickly.
The lathes on a Swiss Turn machine are highly precise with multi-axis capabilities allowing for faster run times on complex pieces.
Swiss lathe machines can also produce more intricate parts with thinner walls, more delicate features, and deep cuts that would not normally be typical on other machines.
Due to the machine’s ability to produce such intricate pieces in significantly less time, quote to completion lead times are exponentially shortened.
In addition, the need for secondary operations is not needed allowing the finished products to ship as they are completed on their run.
CNC Swiss Screw lathes support the workpiece throughout the operation allowing it to remain steady and not affected by the tools.
This ensures precision within extremely tight tolerances—even when machining very small and intricate parts.
