Swiss Type Turning Center

Swiss Type is a Turning Center design that was originally developed for the Swiss watch industry. These machines are designed to turn small, complex, precision parts. Unlike Conventional Lathes where the part is stationary and the tool moves, a Swiss-type turning center allows the part to move in the Z-axis and the tool is stationary – so essentially the spindle is moving in the Z-axis to the tooling.

CB32M/CB36M

CB32M/CB36M

Complete complicated parts machining in one operation:

The twin spindle features a complete driven tooling system and the Y axis main spindle delivers high efficiency and outstanding production capability. The back machining capability can save time and reduce labor costs, creating a huge productive benefit when machining complex workpieces.
