Swiss screw components meet requirements for superior precision in telecommunications, electronics, and advanced manufacturing applications.
From satellites to semiconductor devices to technologies such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) used in advanced manufacturing, the demand for precision electronic components continues to soar. New innovations are introduced at super-fast speeds and technologies such as artificial intelligence are quickening the pace.
Swiss screw technology provides the capability to manufacture a wide variety of electronic components to meet this powerful demand. Swiss screw machines produce components of most any size and tolerance, for high and low run volume, with advantages that include:
Tighter tolerances – Swiss screw technology meets tighter tolerance requirements due to better support for all stock material during the production process. The part moves while the tooling is stationary. There is less risk of the support material moving resulting in high precision accuracy on even the smallest component.
Efficiency – With up to 6-axis machining capabilities, Swiss screw machines can produce complex, intricate components faster and with outstanding precision. Machines offer positioning for component features such as cutting, drilling, and tapping that might otherwise have to be machined separately.
Material flexibility – Copper, lithium, tin, silver, gold, nickel, and aluminum are just a few of the materials used in electronic components. Swiss screw machining offers the dimensional control and other properties required by the many different kinds of materials used in precision components.
