7mm new SwissNano US preview
For almost 5 years now, the SwissNano has been making a name for itself with its uncompromising precision and ergonomics. Today, Tornos is pleased to announce the arrival of a new SwissNano model boasting a higher capacity.
The unique kinematics of the SwissNano enable turning, drilling, cutting, deburring, roughing and finishing operations. A vast range of precision parts can be machined on the SwissNano, which includes parts for micromechanics, electronics, medical and dental segments.
While the 4mm bar capacity of the original SwissNano allowed entry into these precision markets, it now enables access into new markets for specialists who desire to machine larger diameter parts.
Philippe Charles, head of product management Swiss-type explains: “The idea was to offer a machine with a similar design that exhibits the same top performance. Against this backdrop, our engineers have paid particular attention to the machine stability.”
While being only slightly larger than the standard model, the machine still has the smallest footprint of the market in its category, is ergonomic, and boasts high thermal stability and precision.
The workpiece machining capacity has considerably increased from 4mm x 28mm to 7mm x 50mm, the spindle output from 1kW to 2.5kW, and the number of standard tools from 13 to 18. Furthermore, numerous supplementary machining functions such as thread whirling for main machining operations, as well as gear hobbing, polygon milling, or cross-drilling for back-machining operations, have been added. To ensure maximum efficiency, the part collection system is offered in various versions and can be selected depending on the length of the parts produced; it can be swapped in just a few moments during set-up work.
