Highly accurate, extremely efficient, small part production

CNC Swiss Type Machining

Oregon Swiss Precision began exclusively as a Swiss Type Machine shop and we have extensive experience with this method of machining. We have a large selection of Swiss Type CNC Automatic Lathes with 3 to 7 axis configurations. They allow turning, threading, milling, drilling and off-center milling operations, producing a completed part in one cycle. They are configured with 12′ automatic bar feeders which reduce operator material handling time. This increases machine run times helping minimize cost-per-part.

Why Swiss Type Machining?

Swiss Type Machines (also known as Swiss Style or Swiss Screw Machines) are uniquely designed with a precision bushing and a supporting, sliding headstock. These unique features allow for extreme accuracy, holding tolerances of +/-.0002”. This system also makes it ideal for the manufacturing of long parts with small diameters. It minimizes deflection and vibration that occurs when turning on a standard lathe.

When to Consider Swiss Type Machining

Because of the extreme accuracy, parts with close tolerance requirements are perfect candidates for Swiss Type Machining. Also considered are smaller parts with diameters from 1/8” to 1-1/4″. Production volumes range from small prototype quantities to large production runs in excess of 100,000 components. Typical parts which are manufactured on CNC Swiss Type machines are spacers, fasteners, nozzles, poppets, electronic connectors, threaded screws, custom hardware, and precision shafts.
