Swiss Screw Machining Services

Swiss screw machining is one of the most popular machining techniques nowadays. The distance between the cutting tool, and the main spindle (or workpiece support) in the Swiss screw machines is minimized with the help of a guide bushing. This distinguishes the Swiss screw machining services from the traditional turning ones. This is an advanced process in which the deflection at the cutting surface is prevented by reducing the workpiece bending. If you want to machine small cylindrical pieces in large volumes, then Swiss precision machining services is what you should be looking forward to. Smithfield Prescision Corp is one of the most experienced Swiss screw machining service providers in the US.

Benefits of Swiss Screw Machining

There are many reasons why most industries opt for Swiss screw machining. The reasons lie in the benefits of this machining technique, which are as follows:

  1. The machines used for Swiss screw machining have a good versatility.
  2. Complex parts are manufactured with a great efficiency, as a Swiss screw machine is capable of performing simultaneous operations.
  3. Another benefit of these machines is that they feature three or four cutting tools that are operated at the same time.
  4. Complex, small, slender, and precision components can be made using Swiss turning process, which is a part of this machining.
  5. The Swiss screw machines are equipped with features like guide bushing, bar stock feeder, second spindle, which helps improve the quality of production and harness the overall repeatability.
  6. The time required for fabrication is reduced, and the productivity is increased by using these machines. This helps lower the cost per piece of the machined parts. Besides this, the time required for tool change, and set-up is less. This further reduces the production times on orders, which also decreases the long-term cost per part.
  7. There have been several improvements in the programing of these machines, which has led to a better uptime. In addition to this, the machine has the capability to run even on a lights-out schedule, thanks to the Swiss style lathe’s bar feed system.
