Tornos currently offers a full range of MultiSwiss solutions for producing parts measuring 4 to 32 mm in diameter

The two new variants – the MultiSwiss 8x26 and the MultiSwiss 6x32 – have been designed based on the philosophy and the technology which proved so successful on the MultiSwiss 6x14 and MultiSwiss 6x16 machines. The machines feature mobile spindles with Z axes, barrel indexing using torque motor technology, and a container housing all the peripherals required for machine operation. The footprint of the machines has been optimised. These machines mark a departure from conventional multi-spindle machines, providing the link between multi-spindle and single-spindle turning machines. The machines' on-board technology means they can deliver cycle times equal to those of cam-operated multi-spindle turning machines.

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

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.

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.
