Swiss screw machining & machined products are a specialty of Cox Manufacturing. We prmoise to deliver high-quality ultra-precision machining and miniature swiss parts, plus a company-wide commitment to maintain a completely predictable component supply at any production volume or level of precision.

This commitment to timely delivery, consistent quality and minimized cost is backed by an extensive selection of Swiss equipment on the Cox CNC equipment list.

What does "Swiss" refer to in machining?

The term "Swiss" in machining actually has more than one meaning. To some it is a type of machine, and to others it represents a product of uncommonly small size of high precision. 

Originally developed for producing watch parts, Swiss machining is designed for miniature parts and excels in producing long slender parts. CNC Swiss Turn machines have a sliding headstock that functions with a guide bushing, providing stationary support for the work piece while the part is machined. This design enables the machine to hold tight tolerances, produce parts that are very long in relation to their diameter, and produce very small or miniature parts. 

Tornos Deco 12 Axis Swiss CNC Machine

The Tornos Deco 2000 is a state of the art 12-axis swiss CNC. With its unique ability to optimize production cycle times, we are able to produce complex components in one unmanned process. Watch as we review processing a component made from 1/2" square brass and 12 ft. bar lengths. 

Swiss Screw Machining Capabilities

  • Cam Swiss Automatic Screw Machines for components that require micro machining, or for parts with an unusually long and slender profile
  • CNC Swiss Equipment with up to 12 axes of CNC control, to produce precision components with complex geometries in one operation
  • Automatic Bar Loaders which boost production efficiency and cut unit costs

Cox Machining Expertise

While equipment is important, the true Swiss advantage comes from a staff that knows how to make the most of Swiss equipment’s capabilities. Cox expertise stretches back half a century to our founding in 1956. Today, it’s seen in our ability to work with customers to fine tune production processes and source the ideal raw materials to eliminate supply bottlenecks and maximize quality. Further strength comes from our own in-house tooling facility, uniquely equipped to support Swiss equipment with wire EDM forming tools and modern CNC controlled tool grinding.
