Swiss turning

« Back to Glossary Index

Swiss turning is a highly specialized service performed in the manufacturing industry that involves the use of a Swiss-type lathe to produce small, complex parts with high precision and accuracy. This process is particularly useful for creating parts with intricate geometries, such as those found in medical devices, aerospace components, and electronics.

The Swiss turning process involves the use of a sliding headstock that holds the workpiece in place while a cutting tool moves along the length of the material, removing material as it goes. This allows for precise control over the shape and size of the part being produced, as well as the ability to create features such as threads, grooves, and other complex geometries.

One of the key benefits of Swiss turning is its ability to produce parts with high accuracy and repeatability, even at high volumes. This makes it an ideal choice for manufacturers who need to produce large quantities of small, complex parts on a regular basis.
