Screw Machines - Swiss-Type
Designed to efficiently process long slender parts for the watch industry, the Swiss-type turning machine uses a sliding headstock to produce its Z-axis motion. As the headstock moves, the work “slides” through a close coupled bushing allowing movement and as well as support. To provide X-axis feed, numerous cutting tools on independent slides or gang tool plates are arrayed around the periphery of the spindle and cross feed perpendicularly to the workpiece. When equipped with CNC, 11 or more axes of motion--in the form of driven tools, sub-spindles, compound slides, thread whirling and rotary broaching attachments as well as polygon turning--can be brought to bear for "done-in-one" production.
