Swiss style CNC Turning
Swiss CNC Turning
Swiss style CNC Turning is a precision machining process which allows one to produce parts with a very high length to diameter ratio. These machines are designed to produce small, complex, precise parts- in just one operation. Swiss-Type technology is widely utilized in machining of custom components for industries such as: Medical, Electronics, Fluid-Power, as well as many other industrial applications.
Midwest Turned has invested heavily in this type of machining technology. With a large lineup of Swiss-type machines, MTP accommodate small production runs for prototype purposes as well as high production demands for quantities in excess of 1 million parts annually. MTP also has a broad range of capabilities for Swiss-Type components.

What is a Swiss Screw Machine?
Originating in Switzerland in the 1800s, the Swiss Lathe or Swiss Screw Machine was produced to keep up with the growing demand for small, precise parts from Swiss watchmakers. By the 1960s, the machine began to be utilized by numerous industries, and in the 1970s, the first CNC production screw machine was released. The use of these machines continued to grow through the 1980s when screw machining was used for the electronic and semiconductor industries. Ten years later, improvements were made to the machine, and Swiss screw machine shops found themselves capable of serving the aerospace and medical industries, as well.
Today, Swiss-style CNC Turning is a precision machining process that allows for the production of precision parts with a very high length-to-diameter ratio. These machines are designed to produce small, complex, precise parts in just one operation at a rapid pace. They also feature a broad set of tooling, enabling the machine to perform several operations on a single piece. The combination results in both time and cost savings for short and long production runs.
