- Swiss Machining
Shamrock Precision chose Marubeni Citizen-Cincom (Citizen) Swiss-Type CNC Automatic Lathes for their fast-machining cycles, tooling flexibility, and reliable reputation. With the ability to perform several operations in a single set-up, Shamrock saves valuable time while improving quality on production sizes large and small. Reach out to our team and allow Shamrock an opportunity earn your trust.
CNC Swiss turning easily produces small intricate parts in high volumes. Complex and intricate profiles are easily programmed into the machine and completed quickly. Many of the components produced are used by the energy sector, aerospace, and defense industries, medical, automotive, communications, and electronics markets.
Intricate Shear Screws, precisely crafted shafts, connectors, and precision engineered aerospace components are quickly and efficiently produced to the smallest detail. We offer:
- 5 axis Quick Turning (CNC Swiss) up to 2”
- 7-axis CNC lathing up to 18” Diameter
7 axis machining process can produce complicated parts without having to move the workpiece to another machine. The 7-axis include:
- X-axis (vertical rotation)
- Y-axis (horizontal rotation)
- Z-axis (moving the arm up/down)
- A-axis (rotating at X-axis)
- B axis (rotating at Y-axis)
- C axis (rotating at Z-axis)
- E axis (twisting the arm)

Frequently Asked Questions
Swiss turning refers to a specialized process for machining small, high precision turned parts. Assuming parts are of the same size and material, the parts in the Swiss Screw machine will deflect and vibrate less during machining than in a traditional lathe.
The 7-axes involved are the usual right-left, top-down, back-front, followed by the axes defined by the spinning of the tool, rotation of the part, rotation of the tool head, and movement for clamping, reclamping, or removing the part
Machining is a process in which a material is cut to a desired final shape and size by a controlled material-removal process.
Custom CNC machining is a process that involves creating one-of-a-kind parts and components for various sectors such as the agricultural, automotive, and aerospace industries.
3 axis machining involves a workpiece in a fixed position while the cutting tool operates along the X, Y, Z plane to cut away material. 3-axis machining is most suitable for parts that do require a lot of depth and detailing.
4-axis machining adds movement of the cutting tool and allowing rotation around the X axis. As a result, there are 4 axes X, Y, Z and A rotating around the X axis. The majority of 4 axis CNC machine tools allow the workpiece to rotate, which is called b-axis, so the machine can act as both milling machine and lathe.
5-axis machines rely on a tool that moves in five different axes, the X, Y, and Z, as well as A and B, around which the tool rotates. Using a 5-axis CNC machine lets operators approach a workpiece all directions in a single operation without having to adjust the part.
