Nomura, Swiss-Style

Swiss-Style Lathes from Gosiger

May 18, 2011

The concept behind Nomura's Swiss-turning philosophy is simple, “A person watching a machine takes away from profit.” In most circumstances one operator can manage up to 5 Nomura Swiss-style lathes.

Many Swiss-style lathes perform most, if not all, machining on the Z axis as opposed to the traditional methods used in other CNC lathes. This methodology creates unique challenges and makes programming them far more elaborate when compared to conventional CNC lathes.  However, Nomura Swiss machines access the full range of axes and allow a comprehensive approach to machining even the most complex parts, complete.
