A Message from Tornos Technologies U.S. Corporation

Company Profile

Tornos' origins go back to 1880, when the company produced the first machines used to turn the small parts needed for the watch-making industry in the Moutier region of Switzerland.

As Seen In Production Machining

Tornos Relocates Headquarters
On Oct. 29, Tornos moved to its U.S. headquarters from Lombard, Illinois, to Des Plaines, Illinois, in a new, 16,000 square-foot facility with a larger showroom that better serves customers.

Swiss-Type Lathe Helps Medical Shop Achieve Higher Precision
After the investment was made in a new Swiss-type lathe, not only was this company management’s expectations exceeded by the machine’s performance and efficiency, but the lathe is now included in plans for future applications.

At Tornos’ booth, the company is featuring No. 20, a Swiss-type lathe made in 1917, and visitors can assemble pens made from different Tornos machines, including SwissDeco 36 multitasking single-spindle lathe.

Turning Technology into Production
More and more, Swiss-type machine tool manufacturers are offering products that are flexible and affordable to job shops as well as large OEMs.

3D Printer

First-Class Manufacturing with Additive
Close attention to detail and automation of key processes is helping this shop earn its place as a leader in the 3D printing industry.

Homage to a Machine Tool Family Man
I thought it was worth sharing the following homage to a "machine tool man" because it speaks to the generational nature of the machine tool industry and how we tend to pay it forward.

Tornos Users can now Benefit from Mastercam Swiss CAM
Tornos customers using the company’s TISIS with ISO programming functions can now make use of Mastercam Swiss CAM to speed up programming on Tornos’ line of machine tools.

Swiss-Type Entry Level Machine Offers Flexibility
The CT project aims to introduce a 20-mm machine offering an unprecedented flexibility for an entry-level machine, the company says.

CT Automatic Turning Machine.

Entry-Level Machine Supports Thread-Whirling Operations

Machine Tool Designs Add Attractiveness
This slide show illustrates some of the new machines that were on display at EMO 2013.

Tornos Multi-Spindles Offer Functions for Every Job
From single-spindle to multi-spindle turning to surface processing, Tornos has machines for turned parts 4-32 mm (0.15”-1.25“) diameter and up to 140 mm (5.5”) long.

Making Small Parts
It still amazes me how small some of the parts can be in our industry. Although it looks like it might be just a chip, this medical component has an 8-thousandths hole through it with four mills along the sides.

Tornos Swiss ST26

Tornos Swiss ST26 Offers Turnkey Equipment Packs
The Swiss ST 26 is a high performance Swiss-type turning center with seven linear axes plus two C axes and two independent tool systems for parts up to 1 inch diameter (0.9 inch without bar prep) and up to 8.6 inches long with guidebush.

A Swiss Shop’s Next Generation
The shallow talent pool of available skilled machinists can be an even bigger obstacle to the shop that is rapidly growing. Perhaps the best solution is to attack the problem from within.
