is a different kind of Swiss screw machine job shop
component machining on our CNC Swiss screw machines
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.
In 2009 we finaly disposed of the last of our cam style Swiss screw machines.
After a 10 years of upgrading, we have replaced all of our older CNC Swiss
screw machines with new Star machines. 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.
In October, 2009 Swissturn completed its transition to the ISO9001:2008
Quality Management Standard. We have been ISO registered since 1998.
Lean component machining
Many of our employees
have been trained in lean manufacturing concepts. Our shop floor is constantly
being reorganized, streamlined, cleaned, painted, and improved. We've
taken a crowded, cluttered, oil-soaked machine shop and turned it into
a pleasant efficient work environment. Visitors often compliment us on
the cleanliness and organization of our shop. Lean is a never-ending process.
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.
