Tornos Technologies' Deco 20s Swiss-type machine is targeted to medical, automotive, electronics, connector and general manufacturing companies producing precision parts that are moderately complex and up to 20 mm in diameter.

According to the company, the machine is a "mirror image" machine, having almost an equal number of tools available for both the main and counterspindle. Both tool systems have three independent axes for a total of six axes. The company also refers to this versatile and flexible model as "two lathes in one."

Live tooling can perform milling and drilling operations in addition to turning, so that many parts can be completely produced in one setup. Up to 15 different operations can be carried out on the machine such as internal and external turning, drilling along the axis, offset drilling, plus axial and cross milling, all on both spindles. Further, special attachments can be added to perform operations such as thread whirling, polygon milling and more.
