The Yama Seiki Swiss-type lathe is especially useful for workpieces smaller than 42 mm (1.65"). The SW series is available with a sub-spindle, live tooling and a bar feeder. With front-end and rear-end tooling capability, the Swiss series allows for full production.

Machines in the SW series include the SW-20 (20-mm max. machining diameter), the SW-32 (32-mm max. machining diameter) and the SW-42 (42-mm max. machining diameter). The series offers more flexible operations, such as turning, milling and cross drilling. Forming a different combination of power systems—main spindle, sub-spindle, front-end tool, C axis and live tools—means the workpiece can be finished at one time and two operations can be machined simultaneously.

The machine is also equipped with fully enclosed splashguards to keep chips and coolant contained for a safe, clean environment. The auto lubrication system delivers metered amounts of lubrication to the slideways, ballscrews and vital components. Distribution is automatically shut off during idling to prevent waste.

Depending on the application, the side rotary toolholder can select different live tool attachments such as OD grooving, polygon machining or a standard rotary toolholder. All axes are using high accuracy linear guideways. Guideways are also pre-loaded to eliminate any backlash that may occur during high speed turning.
