Always A Step Ahead
CNC Swiss machining is a fast, cost effective way to produce large quantities of very small, long and/or thin parts with very tight tolerances and challenging features. CNC Swiss machining is very different from conventional machining processes in that with Swiss technology the parts move along a Z axis while the tools remain stationary.
In more traditional machining, the part is stationary and the tools move. Work pieces are held in place within the machine and are advanced through a guide bushing. Different types of guide bushings can be used to achieve tighter fits and tolerances. Because the guide bushing supports at the point of cut, this almost completely eliminates deflection and vibration...which improves machining accuracy.
