Swiss lathe turning and screw machining comprises a large part of our high precision machining business.  Swiss Machines are different from other types of CNC Lathes or turning machines because they minimize the distance between the workpiece support (main spindle) and the cutting tool through the use of a guide bushing. This contrast from traditional turning reduces workpiece bending, thereby eliminating deflection at the cutting surface. The Swiss machining process is ideal for precisely manufacturing high volumes of small cylindrical pieces.

Acclaim can accommodate parts made from almost any type of metal, plastic, or engineering grade material up to 32mm (1.25 inches) in diameter. The magazine style bar feeders of our Swiss CNC lathe machines allow continuous operation and efficiency by holding raw rod stock up to 12 feet in length. The twin spindles of our machines also enable versatile secondary operations to create multiple part features within the same cycle.

Acclaim’s swiss machine tooling is highly flexible and economical for producing components in a wide range of quantities between 500 and 50,000 units, though our team can also produce orders above or below this range.
