Swiss Lathe

Swiss LatheSwiss Lathe – A special lathe design, Swiss Lathes are made specifically to provide precision accuracy down to a few micrometers. Swiss Lathes hold the work piece on the Z axis using a collet and guide bushing. The tools sit at the Z axis, and the workpiece moves. This is different from many lathes where the tool moves and the work piece stays stationary.
