What is swiss type lathe machine?

Origin and development


Swiss tyepe cnc lathe originated in Switzerland and Germany. The swiss tyepe lathe machine at that time was used for the fine processing of military equipment. With the continuous development of the industry, the market needs more and more swiss tyepe lathe machines, which are gradually applied to the processing of civilian products. Compared with similar machine tools in Japan and South Korea, China has developed relatively late, and after the war, swiss tyepe lathe machines were widely used in the manufacturing industry; immediately after the introduction of this technology in Taiwan, China independently developed different types of swiss tyepe lathe machines to meet different processing needs. Prior to the 1990s, China’s demand relied on imported walkers to meet the needs of industrial processing.




Because the structure of the swiss tyepe lathe is different from the traditional CNC lathe, the machining efficiency and accuracy of the swiss tyepe lathe machine are higher than that of the CNC lathe. The swiss tyepe lathe machine uses two-axis arrangement tools, which greatly saves the processing cycle time. In the machining process of the main shaft and the workpiece clamping part, the chip cutter has always played a very important role, it provides a strong guarantee for constant machining accuracy. From the point of view of the machine market, 38mm is its large processing diameter, which makes the machine have a great advantage in the fine shaft processing market. This series of machine tools can also be equipped with automatic feeding devices to achieve the fully automated production of a single machine tool, reducing labor costs and defective products in the production process, which can be used to produce large quantities of fine shaft parts.



Compared with the conventional CNC machining process, the advantages of swiss type lathe machine are mainly reflected in the following aspects:


(1) Shorten the product manufacturing process chain and improve production efficiency. Turn-milling composite processing can achieve all or most of the processing operations in one clamping, thereby greatly shortening the product manufacturing process chain. In this way, the production assistance time caused by the clamping change is reduced, and the manufacturing cycle and waiting time of the tooling fixture is also reduced, which can significantly improve the production efficiency.


(2) Reduce the number of clamping times and improve machining accuracy. The reduction of the number of clampings avoids the accumulation of errors caused by the transformation of the positioning reference. At the same time, most of the turning and milling processing equipment has the function of online detection, which can realize the in-situ detection and precision control of key data in the manufacturing process, thereby improving the processing accuracy of the product.


(3) Reduce floor space and production costs. Although the single unit price of turning and milling processing equipment is relatively high, due to the shortening of the manufacturing process chain and the reduction of equipment required for the product, as well as the reduction of the number of fixtures, workshop floor space and equipment maintenance costs, it can effectively reduce the overall fixed assets. Cost of investment, production operations and management.
