Swissturn/USA is a different kind of Swiss screw machine job shop
What makes Swissturn different from most CNC Swiss screw machine job shops? It’s probably our commitment to change. We’re constantly investing in new equipment, rearranging our shop floor, changing our procedures, training our employees, even refining processes for jobs that we’ve run for 20 years.
Precision small component machining on our CNC Swiss screw machines
Swissturn utilizes Star CNC Swiss screw machines for primary machining of precision turned parts. Every machine has secondary capabilities (slotting, cross-drilling, cross-tapping, back drilling, etc.), eliminating the need to do further machining once any small parts come off of the Swiss. More important though is the use of automatic bar loaders. This gives us the capability to operate “lights out.” When our employees go home at 5 o’clock, the machines keep running all night and often all weekend.
Lean component machining
Many of our employees have been trained in lean manufacturing concepts. Perhaps the most obvious evidence of lean concepts is the 5S tools utilized at Swissturn. Gone are the days of the cluttered, oily, smoky, noisy, grimy machine shop. Our shop floor is constantly being reorganized, streamlined, cleaned, painted, and improved. Visitors often compliment us on the cleanliness and organization of our shop. Lean is a never-ending process.
Small parts contract machining from a job shop dedicated to change
Our commitment to change means that we’ll respond to your concerns. It’s impossible to be perfect in a CNC Swiss screw machine job shop. New jobs create unforeseen problems. What Swissturn does guarantee, though, is that we’ll respond to issues and learn from them. If we can’t solve a problem, we’ll let you know so that we can work together to come up with a solution.
