Aside from prototyping capabilities and faster part deliveries, companies are flocking to CNC Swiss Machining shops because of their highly accurate machining, tight tolerances and competitive pricing. With little room for error, industries such as aerospace and medical rely on the CNC Swiss Machine's high level of accuracy and attention to detail to uphold quality.
1. HIGHLY ACCURATE MACHINING
CNC Swiss Screw Machines, also referred to as CNC turning machines or lathes, are controlled by a CNC unit. The increased direction provided by CNC allows these turning machines to feature more sets of tooling, allowing for the machine to perform several operations on the same piece in shorter amounts of time. Swiss machining utilizes a support system, called a guide bushing, allowing the material to move under the cutting tools creating a very rigid “point of cut”. This greatly diminishes deflection and vibration, which helps to further improve machining accuracy.
2. TIGHT TOLERANCES OVER LONG LENGTHS
CNC Swiss Machines have a high level of attention to detail leaving little room for error. CNC Swiss machines have the ability to hold tolerances of +/- .0002 on a regular basis making them one of the most accurate machines in the manufacturing industry. These machines are not one-fold. These tolerance abilities stand over long lengths, saving your company costs in material waste.
3. GREAT PRICES ON HIGH VOLUME QUANTITIES
One of the greatest benefits to these CNC machines is that they can run with little supervision, dramatically decreasing labor costs. When the machining is near the spindle collet, it allows the machine to produce parts with very close tolerances. There is less vibration along the part length as compared with a turret style lathe which has tools move to the rotating part. Swiss machining is ideal for parts that are long (in comparison to the diameter) with tight tolerances.
