CNC Swiss Machining Service

CNC Swiss Machining Service is suit for machining high volume of small and complex cylindrical parts. The diameter of turned parts range from 1.1 mm - 38 mm (0.045"-1.5").  The straightness and concentricity tolerance is also very tight. At present, Kesu Group invested in 23 sets of 5-axis CNC Swiss Type Automatic Lathe. Such as Star SB 20R type G and Tsugami BO205-Ⅲ. At the same time, each machine is equipped with an IEMCA bar feeder. It can fully realize the mass production of slender shaft parts.

What is Swiss CNC machining?

Swiss machining is a type of precision manufacturing that produces very small parts quickly and accurately. In which the part is formed by a CNC unit operated lathe that rotates the part in a radial motion while cutting the part. This type of specialized tool cutting allows the machine to perform multiple operations at once in a shorter period of time.

Kesu Hardware's specific Swiss lathe turning applications center on micromachining in the 1 mm to 4 mm diameter range, as well as complex B-axis milling and eccentric applications up to 26 mm in diameter. Boring, boring, knurling, turning and milling capabilities are available, as well as threading through external thread cutting, tapping, rolling and single point threading. A variety of materials can be handled, from stainless steel to titanium, aluminum, and even plastics. Our machines also have an automatic loading function for high volume runs.

All in all, Kesu Hardware's precision CNC Swiss machining is used for complex, highly intricate machining as well as some of the simpler turned products.

How the precision CNC swiss machining machine works

The Swiss machine works by feeding the bar stock through a guide bushing that firmly supports the material as it is fed into the tool area of the machine. In addition, only the part of the bar being machined enters the machining area, which means that the material is held tightly in place for increased stability and accuracy.

With conventional CNC lathes, the workpiece is usually rotated quickly in a fixed position and held firmly at one or both ends. In contrast, with a Swiss lathe, the workpiece can both rotate and move back and forth along the Z-axis while various tools cut features of the part. In addition, Swiss lathes can perform multiple operations in multiple areas at the same time, whereas conventional lathes can typically perform only one operation at a time.

While Swiss machines are traditionally used to machine turned parts such as screws, Swiss machines can also produce complex parts with no turned surfaces at all.

Advantages of CNC Swiss machining

Swiss-style lathes have the advantage of being both accurate and fast. They can hold tolerances as small as tens of thousands of inches, making them ideal for applications that always require the same measurements. They can also produce simple parts with short cycle times, as little as 10 seconds depending on the part. Much like 5-axis machining, Swiss machining lathes can rotate parts along 5 different axes to make the most precise cuts on each part.

Our advanced machinery can produce complex and intricate shapes as well as standard shapes.

What is Swiss Machining?

Swiss machining is performed by the CNC swiss type automatic lathe. CNC Swiss Type automatic lathe , it can also be called CNC Swiss Type Lathe, Swiss Style Lathe, Swiss CNC lathe or Swiss-type automatic lathe. It is a precision processing equipment that can complete lathe, milling, drilling, boring, tapping, engraving and other compound processing at the same time. It is mainly used for batch processing of precision hardware and shaft special-shaped non-standard parts.


Swiss Machining Service

        Tsugami Swiss Type Lathe


The CNS Swiss Type automatic lathe has a qualitative leap compared to the CNC lathe in processing efficiency and processing accuracy. Due to the dual-axis arrangement of tools, the processing cycle time is greatly reduced. By shortening the tool exchange time between the gang tool and the opposing tool station, the multi-tool station overlap function, the thread chip effective axis movement overlap function, and the direct spindle indexing function during secondary processing, the idle time can be shortened. The chip cutting tool is always processed in the clamping part of the spindle and the workpiece, which ensures that the processing accuracy is constant. The maximum machining diameter of the core machine on the market is 38mm. However, the centering machine is mainly limited by the diameter of the material. Generally, the largest type of centering lathe can only process parts with a diameter of 20 mm. Usually, the core lathe is equipped with a feeder for processing, realizing the fully automated production of a single machine tool, reducing labor costs and defective products in the production process. It can be used to produce large quantities of precision shaft parts.
