Mainstay’s Swiss Turning Lathe allows us to machine with extreme accuracy. With this service, we can handle tolerances as low as a few tenths of a thousandth of an inch (ideal for medical and aerospace fields). Swiss Turning is perfect for machining slender work pieces since they can be held firmly, which lessens the chance of vibration or deflection. Swiss Turning Lathes are also incredibly efficient, making simple parts with one cycle pass in as few as 10-15 seconds. They are ideal for large production runs of small-diameter parts.
Our machines use live tooling, rotary cutting tools powered by small, independent spindle motors. These allow us to manufacture even the most intricate of components. Our capabilities utilize a 12-foot bar feeding length with the maximum diameter of 20mm cold finished bar stock.
