What Is a Swiss CNC Machine?

Swiss CNC machines are used for manufacturing small, complex parts. With Swiss machining, the cutting tools are approximately a quarter inch from the guide bushing, minimizing vibration by creating a more stable holding system. Swiss CNC machines feature exceptional flexibility and precision—making them ideal for complex, high-production applications. 

One of the greatest advantages of Swiss CNC machines is their versatility. These machines can perform a wide variety of functions, including milling, threading, knurling, axial drilling and more. As a result, Swiss machines are popular across a wide range of industries in need of precision machined parts. 

Swiss CNC machining also supports a host of material types, including plastics, cobalt-chrome alloys, aluminum, stainless steel and more. This advantage gives OEMs greater flexibility in choosing materials best suited to meet their functional requirements and optimize end-component costs. 

In the context of medical device manufacturing, Swiss CNC machines are widely used to produce smaller components with extremely tight dimensional tolerances. The efficiency and accuracy of these machines make them uniquely suited for high-precision medical solutions, including single-use instruments and parts for orthopedic devices.

Micro Swiss Machining

The Tornos SwissNano machine was designed to produce very small parts, with extreme quality and precision. In the world of medical device manufacturing, components are getting smaller and smaller. As these components decrease in size, their dimensional tolerances become increasingly tighter. Marshall has a history of providing high quality micro-machined medical components and assemblies to our customers. Satisfying our customers is our highest priority.

SwissNano machines offer the best precision on the market for medical device manufacturers. These powerful tools are designed for workpieces requiring exceptional precision and quality. Along with their capacity for turning, cutting, deburring and drilling, SwissNano machines offer excellent ergonomics and visual access, making tool adjustment simple and efficient.

At Elimold, we work with leading Swiss CNC machine manufacturers (including Tornos and and Citizen) to provide the best solutions possible for our customers. Our performance-focused machines are tailored to meet the unique needs of medical device manufacturing, delivering fast cycle times, versatile operations and world-class part quality.

How We Manufacture Custom Swiss CNC Machined Parts

Our custom Swiss CNC machining services rely on our in-house tooling construction and custom-built inspection equipment, which allow us to offer services at a competitive price while maintaining the highest quality. Our extensive fleet of Swiss CNC turning centers provides a range of work envelopes and features to deliver small to mid-sized parts with excellent quality.

When you partner with us for your custom Swiss CNC machining needs, we start your project by reviewing your product blueprint. Then, we review quotes from outside suppliers and generate our internal quotes. After receiving the purchase order, there is documented approval that’s sent to the customer, and then we create and distribute manufacturing prints and tooling. Next, Elimold’s Automatic Machining manufactures your parts and performs final inspections before shipping them to you.

Alternatives to Swiss Machining

  • 5-axis CNC Milling: 5-axis milling, like Swiss machining, can be used to fabricate complex parts to extremely precise tolerances at fast speeds. Although, the parts made by 5-axis milling are often larger than the parts fabricated using Swiss machining. Additionally, however, unlike Swiss machining where bar stock is automatically fed into the work area for machining, 5-axis milling typically requires more tool changes and downtime. Consequently, depending on the production volume and part geometry, Swiss machining is often a more efficient process.
  • Conventional Lathe Machining: Conventional turning and facing operations using a traditional lathe may not be as efficient as Swiss machining but can still be a viable alternative. Certain factors may justify the decision to pick a conventional lathe over a Swiss lathe. Such factors include: the part being too large for Swiss machining, tolerances are not strict, or it is a one-off part. While CNC lathes are great for these operations, they require more downtime since cutting tools must be replaced more frequently and parts must be removed and adjusted more often.
