Swiss Turning

Advances in Swiss Turning technology have been dramatic and swift over the years and ATD Precision has kept up with the pace of change, continually updating its equipment to maintain a competitive edge. Along with standard automatic magazine bar feeders, our Swiss Turning Centers have programmable back spindles, twin turrets, and live tooling capability for multiple machining operations on each part. Our Swiss-type machines can hold tolerances as low as 13 microns (.0005 in.) total on OD’s and ID’s. The machines are arranged in cells to maximize efficiency.

  • Size range of Swiss-turned parts: 2 mm (.0787”) minimum diameter to 32 mm (1.260”) maximum diameter x 1219.2 mm (48”) maximum length
