Why Swiss Screw Machines?

With ten(10)Swiss screw machines running 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, Erickson Automatics has the available machine capacity to supply your need for custom swiss screw machine parts.

All of our machines are equipped with automatic bar loading equipment to facilitate their continuous operation.

Our experienced people are knowledgeable and skilled in utilizing the best methods for producing quality parts quickly.

The flexibility of the tooling and the 1.33 HP of the live tool motor on our L20 Vlll machines, allows us to make even more complicated swiss screw machined parts and to do even heavier machining. The larger and heavier axis (7 axis) slides combined with the improved live tool clamping system has increased the machine's total rigidity.

Complex, multi-operation Swiss screw machined parts in one operation with tolerances as tight as + or - .0002. are made simple by the 44 tools (Live Tooling) and back spindle 1 degree indexing, C Axis of our Swiss screw machines. Including Threading, Milling, Contouring, Slotting, and Cross Work. Cross work includes Reaming, Off Center Drilling, Drilling and Tapping. End work includes Boring, Drilling, Milling, Tapping, and Reaming.

The newly added K16E VII Citizen Swiss machine offers seven cutting axes (X1, Y1, Z1, X2, Z2, C1, C2) and one loader axes (A7) making the toughest applications easier, while reducing idle times by 40 to 50%.

Our Swiss screw machining abilities have also been increased with the addition of Whirling Attachments. We are able to produce parts with high helix buttress thread forming as well as those with large root diameter and head diameter differences and long length to diameter ratios. Thread sizes from 3MM to 12MM (.118 in. to .50 in.). Bone screws and other complex threaded dental and medical implants are examples.

The machining abilities of the L20 machines can handle most any application with ease.
