Going The Distance

Swiss Screw technology keeps pace with growing demand in telecommunications 

Swiss Screw

From fixed microwave links to wireless data transmission to mobile broadband services, the telecommunications industry continues to expand, as more innovations connect our world. While we may take it for granted while texting on a cell phone or watching a streaming video, telecommunications technology calls for precision components to ensure uninterrupted service over great distances. Swiss screw technology has what it takes to keep up and enhance these innovations in telecommunications.

Swiss screw machining offers several advantages in producing critical components used in the telecommunications industry. These include but are not limited to:

Superior accuracy – The components required in a telecommunications system demand the highest accuracy to perform to the highest standards. So they must meet exacting physical tolerances. Swiss screw technology can meet such tolerance requirements because of exceptional stability in the manufacturing process. Swiss screw machines better support the stock material during production because the part moves while the tooling is stationary. The technology can deliver high precision accuracy on even the smallest telecommunications component.

Time-savings – Swiss screw machines have the ability to perform three or four operations simultaneously such as cutting, drilling, and tapping, that might otherwise have to be machined separately. Even complex, intricate parts can be produced faster and with outstanding efficiency, ideal for prototyping and saving time in the production schedule.

Flexibility – Telecommunication systems use a wide variety of materials to create wire, radio, optical, and satellite technologies. Swiss screw machining is ideal for components made of titanium, copper, lithium, tin, silver, gold, nickel, and other high-tech alloys required.
