Our Swiss CNC Machining Capabilities Have A Broad Range Of Milling Operations and Fast Rapids
Swiss CNC machining capabilities with increased milling operations and fast rapids are essential for precision complex parts. Unlike conventional CNC lathes in which the tools move into the bar stock, the Swiss CNC machine turns the metal at high speed into the tools with a guide bushing. The bushing controls the movement of the bar stock into the cutting tools and provides a more precise cut. This process produces part complexity, tighter tolerances, and reduces operations and production time. It is ideal for manufacturing smaller parts and quantities than other machining methods.
The Swiss CNC machine has live tooling which means the tools are not stationary. They move on slides and rotate as needed to complete a particular operation such as milling, drilling, reaming or whatever the part requires. Sometimes they can work simultaneously. The increased number of tools results in more operations, so the machine operator does not need set up the part on another machine and cycle.
Our Citizen, Evolution Series machines, offer live tooling, a full C axis on main and sub spindles for precise front and back working operations to utilize the maximum flexibility for intricate parts while eliminating costly secondary operations for increased throughput for small, mid or high production runs.
The AME Swiss Machining process is precise and quick due to our creativity to find the least amount of operations needed to reduce cycle time. Our design engineer has over 20 years experience working with Swiss CNC machining capabilities and many types of industry specific applications. Our goal is to save you time and money without sacrificing quality. View our Case Study to see how we did this for a customer in the automobile industry.
