Driving Precision

Swiss screw machining keeps pace with changing automotive industry.

From electric vehicles to self-driving technologies, the automotive industry is constantly changing, fueled by innovations that keep the pedal to the metal for new products. That’s why more and more manufacturers are adding and keeping Swiss screw technology as a critical part of their production toolbox to help respond to changing demands for components quickly and efficiently.  No matter where roads lead in the future of automotive components, Swiss screw machines can add more horsepower to get the job done.

The shape of things – Swiss screw machines feature up to 6-axis machining capabilities, to produce even the most complex automotive parts faster and with extraordinary precision. With 6-axis technology, Swiss screw machining offers positioning for contouring and other processes that might otherwise have to be machined separately, saving significant time to meet tight delivery schedules.

Not your father’s Oldsmobile – The variety of materials used by automotive manufacturers today is endless. Vehicles are engineered to be lighter, more durable and rust resistant. Swiss screw machining is ideal for all kinds of materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, titanium and a range of alloys. Multiple parts in different materials can be produced fast and efficiently.

Paving the way to higher accuracy – Swiss screw machining offers superior dimensional control because the technology provides better support for all stock material – the part moves while the tooling is stationary. The result is reduced risk of the support material moving for outstanding precision accuracy.
