What is Swiss Precision Turning?
Swiss Precision Turning is a precision manufacturing technique renowned for its ability to produce intricate and high-accuracy turned parts.
It serves industries like automotive, aerospace, and medical, where tight tolerances and precision are essential.
This method employs computer-controlled lathes with sliding headstocks and guide bushings to fabricate intricate components efficiently and consistently.
The key advantage lies in its ability to handle small, complex parts with high precision, reducing the need for extensive post-processing.
What is the Difference Between Precision Turning and Swiss Precision Turning?
The structure of Swiss machines and CNC machines are quite different. In conventional CNC, turning workpieces remain static during use. On the other hand, the workpiece moves and spins along with the Z-axis in Swiss turning.
Here is more about the differences:
The workpiece is fixed inside the machine spindle’s barrel in standard precision milling. This method isn’t ideal for machining long parts because of material misalignment issues.
On the other hand, Swiss Precision Turning uses a barrel clamp that can move along the machine tool’s spindle box behind a sliding rail. This setup allows the CNC blade to move around a guide pillar.
Most standard CNC lathes typically come with either 3 or 4 axes, and they can’t perform both milling and turning in a single cycle. But Swiss machines have 5 axes, allowing them to perform both operations within a single machining cycle.
Water is used as a main refrigerant in Precision machining. But in Swiss machining, oil is the main cooling agent because oil is better at conducting heat compared to water.
Traditional precision machining often involves using multiple machines to work on complex parts. It slows down the production process and increases cycle times.
However, Swiss machines are designed to combine milling and turning into a single machine. This means that when working on intricate components, you can perform multiple tasks on just one machine.

Best Practices When Designing Parts With CNC Turning
Here are some useful tips for Swiss CNC turning:
Swiss Turning Materials TDB Precision Deals With
We use Aluminum as our main machining material. Whether it’s Swiss turning or CNC turning, we always use Aluminum. Because it has great physical and chemical properties, it also proves high resistance, good conductivity, and extreme strength.
TDB Tech prioritizes Stainless Steel due to its exceptional surface finish and exquisite aesthetic. It’s ideal for precision components demanding both durability and visual appeal.
Copper stands as the prime choice for electrical applications. It offers excellent conductivity, making it indispensable in a multitude of electrical equipment.
From making surgical instruments to industrial fitting, we use brass. It was originally made of Zinc and copper. This mixture of two materials makes it strong and effective against corrosion.
The only reason we use mild steel is because of its low carbon content. When you want to produce electric devices or auto gears and fittings, you need a material like mild steel. This will give you extra strength and structural stability.
This material is the result of a couple of hybrid materials like silicon, molybdenum, and nickel. We use this material to manufacture construction and household items
