What Is CNC Turning?
CNC turning is a machining process that uses computerized controls to manipulate a cutting tool and remove material from a workpiece. The turning machine guided by a pre-programmed set of instructions precisely controls the movement and position of the cutting tool. This enables high accuracy and repeatability in the manufacturing process.
The workpiece is typically held in a chuck and rotated while the cutting tool moves parallel to the axis of rotation. This method is effective for creating complex designs and contours on cylindrical surfaces. CNC turning is prevalent in many industries, including automotive, medical implants, and surgical instrument industries.
What Is Swiss Machining?
Swiss machining (Swiss turning or Swiss-type machining) is a highly specialized process to create small, intricate parts. It originated in Switzerland in the late 19th century to manufacture precision watch components. In this method, the workpiece is held in a collet and is fed through a guide bushing. The cutting tools move near the workpiece for simultaneous machining.
One of the distinguishing features of Swiss machining is its ability to turn and mill in a single setup. This simultaneous capability makes it particularly effective for high-precision components with tight tolerances. It is widely employed in medical devices, orthopedic bone screws, and electronics, where parts with superior precision are essential.
