The Importance of Quality Swiss Screw Machining

by Sally Coupal

Swiss screw machining uses high precision capability to machine subminiature parts. Often it’s a single spindle cam, Escomatic or CNC machine used to produce the complex and tight tolerance components. These parts can have diameters as small as .010” and tolerances as tight as +/-.0001”.

Because Swiss screw machined components are often just a small, but integral part of an assembly, it is imperative they are machined with precision so the entire assembly functions perfectly – lives can depend on our high precision components!  Industries that use precision parts such as the electronics, medical/dentistry, automotive, and aerospace markets all rely on Swiss screw machine components to insure their product has optimal performance.

Quality Swiss screw machining provides

  • Tolerances of +/- .0001” complete on the machine without secondary operations increasing precision and minimizing costs.
  • Superior surface finishes of 4-6 micro inches complete on the machine without costly polishing operations.
  • Components with a wide range of sizes and complex geometries to address individual needs.
  • Custom machined parts to exacting specification whether it’s tolerances, finish, custom profile shapes, specific raw material requirements.  Swiss screw machining can play a critical role in the function of an application.
  • Cost effective solutions. Don’t sacrifice quality for cost  - quality Swiss screw machining can be high speed (efficient) and high quality.
