Automotive industry turns to Swiss Screw Technology for precision components
In today’s automotive industry, one new vehicle can have as many as 30,000 components, from major engine parts to the smallest fasteners. Of course, these components use many different materials and many different manufacturing processes. When it comes to high precision components in a variety of metal alloys, more and more automotive manufacturers are tuning in to the high performance of Swiss screw technology.
Swiss screw machines deliver the accuracy and reliability required by automotive components, with a number of other advantages for manufacturers.
More options for part geometries – 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 component feature contouring and other processes that might otherwise have to be machined separately, saving significant time to meet tight delivery schedules.
Material versatility – With so many parts in one vehicle, the variety of materials used by automotive manufacturers is endless. 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.
Unmatched accuracy – Swiss screw machining offers the dimensional control and other properties required by the many different kinds of automotive parts. That’s 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 precision accuracy.
