Types of Machining

E. J. Basler offers CNC swiss screw machining services and has a World Class Swiss Lathe department. We currently also have the largest Swiss type lathe in the world at our manufacturing facilities allowing working diameters up to 38mm (1.5”).

Swiss Lathes (also know as swiss machines, swiss-type turning machines and sliding headstock machines) were originally designed for “long and skinny” parts (typically 6:1 length to diameter ratio or larger). The principle behind the swiss machine is that the bar moves to the tool rather than the tool moving to the bar (in the Z direction). This vastly reduces the amount of deflection during precision swiss machining since the cutting action occurs closer to the guide bushing. E.J. Basler has the capabilities to machine various material grades including red metals, 303, 304, and 316 stainless steel, and aluminum.
