Swiss Screw Machining

Swiss Screw Machining Capabilities

A swiss screw machine is a type of automatic lathe that can effectivey machine a high volume of precision parts because it deflects and vibrates less during the production process. Swiss machines foster a higher rate of production because it can move the material and the tool at the same time. This characteristic of the cnc swiss machining service allows for the manufacturing of high precision components and screw machined products at an increased efficency. 

WestStar can operate around the clock with lights out capacity and this translates to cost savings on your parts. We can turn materials up to 20mm in diameter using the swiss process. The advantage of this process is the material is fully supported in the guide busing directly adjacent to the cut. This results in less defection and allows us to hold close tolerances of +-.0002 inch.
