Differences & Advantages of CNC Swiss & Standard CNC Machinery

CNC Swiss & Standard CNC Machinery

There are distinct Differences & Advantages of CNC Swiss & Standard CNC Machinery when it comes to manufacturing precise parts. Each type of machine can precisely and efficiently manufacture intricate parts for a variety of jobs and for various industries. Each type of machinery is going to involve different applications.

A CNC Swiss Lathe machine will require different operations compared to the CNC Lathe machine. Understanding the distinct Differences & Advantages of CNC Swiss & Standard CNC Machinery can help to determine which machining is necessary for your individual part.

P4Swiss/Lindel has become more efficient and is now quoting shorter lead times, due to their highly precise machining capabilities. Their CNC shop consists of four CNC Swiss machines and twelve standard CNC machines.

Swiss Machining

Production on a CNC Swiss machine can be cost-effective, efficient, highly accurate and repeatable. On a Swiss Lathe machine, a template bushing device will effectively guide your part through the manufacturing process. This method of machining will work your piece through a guide bushing, and at all times, allow your piece to be cut close to where it is being supported. No matter the length of your part, it will not complicate the precise machining process. This machining technique will ensure that your part keeps away from the collet at an accurate distance, while cutting your piece.

The CNC Swiss machines are especially efficient for long and slim parts that require rotation during the operation process. They can also produce highly successful results when manufacturing greater volumes of small, intricate parts. Swiss machines have the ability to handle intricate designs and produce phenomenal precision for various industries.

Advantages of CNC Swiss Machinery

CNC Swiss machining can impressively reduce the cycle time needed to complete the job. Swiss machines will manufacture your parts in a machining cycle that can be accomplished simultaneously. This type of machining allows for various operations to be carried out on your part, at the same time, and in only one successful set up and machining cycle. These machines consist of a variety of axes, allowing for larger volumes of parts to be intricately and precisely produced.

CNC Swiss machinery requires an oil, or a fluid for accurately cutting your piece. This fluid is a coolant liquid for the machine. During the manufacturing process, the machining oil will heat up quickly to better transmit the heat in the opposite direction of the tools cutting operation. That being the case, the coolant liquid will prevent from rust and early wear and tear.

Standard CNC Machining

Standard CNC machinery involves manufacturing parts in specific movements that can be managed and controlled on the edge of various axes. CNC Lathes will rotate and turn the cutting tool in the X and Y directions, as well as a motion referred to as Z, or in depth. The collet will effectively hold your part to ensure it is successfully secure. The cutting tool will, then, rotate and precisely cut on your manufactured part. This type of machining process involves motors that operate on your manufactured part. As a result, it can produce distinct movements that operate in highly accurate and precise cutting motions.

P4Swiss/Lindel’s CNC shop offers a variety of CNC machinery options, such as 3-axis, 4-axis and 5-axis CNC machining. Standard CNC machinery can offer you intricately designed parts while ensuring that your pieces receive the precision, accuracy and repeatability that you are looking for.

Advantages of CNC Machinery

Standard CNC machining can operate the cutting tool in an expanding motion, performing the precise cutting throughout the entire length of an individual part. As a result, a CNC Lathe can precisely control the motion of the cutting tool and specifically manage the rotations. This manufacturing method can set a continuous and repeatable routine for unbeatable results.

When operating on standard CNC machinery, water is the required fluid that is necessary when the cutting tool is cutting on your piece, or known as the coolant liquid. Water is necessary for the machines to prevent them from early wear and tear and from any rust appearing. CNC Lathes have the ability to produce highly efficient parts that are short and large in diameter, as well as parts that can be bigger with tougher materials.
