Applications for Swiss CNC Machining

OEMs can slash procurement time and costs for precision parts with a supplier network secured by blockchain for anti-counterfeit, recalls and more.

Tooling Parts

Because Swiss CNC Machining
can be applied to virtually any material,
it is perfect for rapid tooling, i.e.,
creating fixtures or molds.

NPI Prototyping Parts

The range of materials available,
low cost per unit, and speed of
production makes Swiss CNC
Machining a great option for
prototyping.

Production Parts

High-quality finish, vast material
options and precise tolerances have
made Swiss CNC Machining a
favorable technology for end-use parts.

Swiss Machining for Industrial Applications

Manufacturers producing complex, critical, and precision products rely on Swiss CNC Machining capabilities to deliver the parts needed at the highest quality, greatest speed, and best comparable price.

Working with experienced and certified Swiss CNC Machining shops provides a wide range of manufacturers, in a variety of industries, with the high-quality components required.

Why Choose Swiss Screw Machining

CNC Swiss screw machines give SyncFab the ability to deliver the small, high precision parts necessary for the manufacturing of critical components. SyncFab is able to produce your fine parts with more accuracy and less downtime, allowing you to keep production on-track.

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.

Negative becomes positive

On a CNC Swiss-type, the Z-axis motion comes from the stock moving instead of the tool. This change affects the nature of programming offsets.

Machine in segments

The order of cuts in the cycle also changes with a Swiss-type. On a conventional lathe, it is typical to rough turn and finish turn the work, then machine features such as OD grooves or threads to complete the part. Not so on a Swiss-type.

The guide bushing is critical

The guide bushing is the heart of the Swiss-type machine. Sizing is essential. Using a guide bushing that is the wrong size for the work will result in concentricity errors.

Oil instead of water

Most Swiss-type machines use oil as the cutting fluid rather than water. The lubricity is greater. Benefits include freedom from odor-causing bacteria growth, as well as from the prune-like hands that result from being exposed to water-based coolant all day.

Amazing machining cycles

Conventional CNC lathes usually have three or four axes. The Swiss-type is likely to have anywhere from seven to 13 axes. Seeing how much work can be quickly performed within the machine’s small work zone can amaze shop personnel who begin to use this type of machine for the first time.

WHY CHOOSE SWISS SCREW MACHINING?

CNC Swiss screw machines give SyncFab the ability to deliver the small, high precision parts necessary for the manufacturing of critical components. SyncFab is able to produce your fine parts with more accuracy and less downtime, allowing you to keep production on-track. 

Increased Efficiency with a Swiss Screw Machine

Unlike other types of screw machines, Swiss machines generate the features of the part by moving the material and the tool at the same time. All of Swiss turn’s CNC Swiss screw machines have secondary capabilities (slotting, cross-drilling, cross-tapping, back drilling, etc.), eliminating the need to do further machining once any small parts come off of the Swiss. 

Extreme Precision for Turned Metal & Plastic Parts

Swiss screw machining is perfect for close tolerance and complex parts. Capable of running different grades of metal and plastic, CNC Swiss screw machines allow engineers to explore different options to improve performance and reduce cost, while achieving a high level of detail and precision.
