Understanding Swiss type CNC lathes
A Swiss-type lathe is a turning machine that feeds the stock through a guide bushing. This means the OD turning tool can always cut the stock near the bushing, and therefore near the point of support, no matter how long the workpiece. The machine feeds the work out of the spindle and past the tool as it goes. This makes the CNC Swiss-type particularly effective for long and slender turned parts. Relative to other CNC machines, the biggest adjustment tends to be the programming, but our trained staff are prepared to help you each step of the way.
