Some shops like to remain focused on a single niche, such as Swiss turning, and farm work out when necessary to fill customer needs. Others find it more effective to broaden their scope as customer demands require additional capabilities.

In our August issue we visited a shop that has added grinding machines to its Swiss operations to further facilitate its production processes. What’s cooler is the automation added to these grinding operations to allow them to keep pace with the lights-out functionality of the Swiss machines. Read “Shop Combines Automated Grinding and Swiss Turning” for more information.

Grinding seems to collaborate well with other high production turning operations. Emag offers a machine that handles both. We’ve covered this machine in the past. Check it out in “Grinding in the Multitasking Mix.”
