In industrial production, if we encounter small high precision mill-turn parts that need to be mass production, how should we choose the appropriate processing method(precision, fast, effective)?
The diameter of the part(Bar stock) is between 1-36mm,Swiss Lathe are the perfect choice.
What is a Swiss Type Lathe?
A Swiss type lathe, also known as a Swiss automatic lathe, Swiss screw machine, or Swiss turning machine.Swiss lathe centers have a moving headstock, in the turning processing, the workpiece is clamped onto the chuck and towards the tooling area through a guide bushing. The headstock moves along the z-axis with the bar stock with it, the bar is located high precision.
Swiss lathes feature 5-axis control or more axes(up to 9 axis in our machine shop）, and can perform multiple operations in a single machining cycle. It can reduce cycle time and clamp time, especially for complex components.
Here are some mill-turn parts(we machined before) for your reference:
