Swiss-type Automatic Lathe

Precision machining equipment

Swiss-type Automatic Lathe – the full name of the moving CNC lathe, can also be called the main axle box moving CNC automatic lathe, economic turning and milling compound machine tool or longitudinal cutting lathe. It belongs to the precision machining equipment, which can complete the composite processing of turning, milling, drilling, boring, tapping, engraving and so on at the same time. It is mainly used for the batch processing of precision hardware and shaft special-shaped non-standard parts.


CNC Swiss-type Automatic Lathe

The machine first originated in Germany and Switzerland, the early stage is mainly used for precision processing of military equipment, with the continuous development and expansion of the industrialization process, due to the urgent needs of the market, gradually applied to the processing of civilian products; Japan and South Korea’s similar machine tool development earlier than China, the early mainly concentrated in the military field of use, after the war with the needs of development gradually widely used in the manufacturing industry; Subsequently, Taiwan introduced this technology and independently developed this type of equipment for different processing needs.

China’s machine manufacturing started late, due to the closed technology and policy restrictions, before the 1990s, China’s machine mainly relies on imports to meet the processing needs, with the continuous development of automation and the strong demand of the market, the Chinese market has a large number of powerful CNC machine manufacturers, Which in the coastal Guangdong, Jiangsu Nanjing, Shandong, Liaoning, mainland Xi ‘an have the production of this series of machine tools, and achieved a good market application, to fill the domestic gap.

Walking machine in the processing efficiency and processing accuracy than the CNC lathe has a qualitative leap, due to the use of dual-axis arrangement of tools, greatly reduce the processing cycle time, by shortening the tool exchange time of the row and the opposite tool table, multiple tool table overlap function, the effective shaft movement overlap function of the thread chip, the direct spindle indexing function of the secondary processing, to achieve the reduction of empty travel time. The chip tool has always been processed in the spindle and workpiece clamping part to ensure the constant accuracy of the processing. The maximum machining diameter of the machine in the market is 38mm, which has great advantages in the precision shaft processing market. This series of machine tools can be equipped with automatic feeding device to achieve fully automated production of a single machine tool, reducing labor costs and product defect rate. Very suitable for mass production of precision shaft parts.

Characteristic advantage


Compared with conventional CNC machining technology, the outstanding advantages of composite machining are mainly reflected in the following aspects:


  • Shorten the product manufacturing process chain and improve production efficiency. Turn-milling composite machining can achieve a single load to complete all or most of the processing processes, thus greatly shortening the product manufacturing process chain. On the one hand, this reduces the production auxiliary time caused by the change of the loading card, and also reduces the manufacturing cycle and waiting time of the tooling and fixture, which can significantly improve production efficiency.

(2) Reduce the number of clamping and improve the processing accuracy. The reduction of loading times avoids the accumulation of errors caused by the conversion of positioning reference. At the same time, most of the turn-milling complex processing equipment has the function of online detection, which can realize the in-place detection and precision control of the key data in the manufacturing process, so as to improve the processing accuracy of the product.

(3) Reduce the footprint and reduce production costs. Although the single price of turning and milling composite processing equipment is relatively high, due to the shortening of the manufacturing process chain and the reduction of the equipment required for the product, as well as the reduction of the number of fixtures, workshop area and equipment maintenance costs, it can effectively reduce the overall fixed assets investment, production operation and management costs.
