What is an Escomatic Machine?

In the 1940’s, Willy Rosetti, a Swiss parts maker, had a problem with a burr on a watch part he was trying to produce.  Conventional radial-fed cut-off tools that he was using generated the burr that needed to be filed off.  Willy came up with a new turning concept that we now know as Esco,… Read more »

Swiss-Style Turning: The Prescription for Medical Parts Manufacturing

Medical component manufacturing requires a machine flexible in its design that it can create any geometric shape that can be conceived.  Swiss-style lathes represent a key process for manufacturing many medical parts.  Bone screws are one type of medical component that uses Swiss machines.  This is due to the productivifty of the machines and ultimately… Read more »

How Swiss Screw Machines Work

Screw machines are automated lathes which can machine turned parts.  The machine components spin very quickly on a rotating lathe, which shaves down metal to the size desired.  There are two types of screw machines: Turret and Swiss machine.  The Turret, also known as. Brown & Sharpe after its first manufacturer, mounts the workpiece on… Read more »
