Swiss-Style Lathes Deliver Small in a Big Way

May 26, 2011

Whether you are producing machine screws, copper fittings, or rivets and fasteners you need high precision with minimal operator assistance. A swiss-style lathe is required to achieve this when machining high-volume components. A Swiss-style lathe or Swiss screw machine is vital to meet the volume and quality expected in today’s small fabrication markets.

Screw machining requires some of the tightest tolerances and highest volumes, of most machining practices. Improving on cam driven technology, a CNC Swiss-style lathe can perform even the most complex machining with short set-up time. This provides a very cost effective option when high quality is a chief concern for your shop.

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.

Nomura Swiss Style Lathes Have a Handle on Vibration

February 4, 2011

Manufacturers often cite lack of rigidity as the greatest single obstacle in successfully turning small diameter parts such as those produced on Swiss-style lathes. Invariably, marginal, or in some cases, complete lack of rigidity results in vibration issues. The vibration in turn, results in poor surface finish and often, parts that are out of tolerance. Recognizing the difficulties associated with turning small diameter parts, Nomura long ago adopted a manufacturing philosophy centered on strict design and development parameters aimed specifically at the inherent problems encountered in this type of machining.
