CNC Swiss Machining Experts

Swiss machining is different from other CNC Lathes due to the way the material is fed and supported while machining. Burger & Brown Engineering has been machining parts with this relatively new technology for over 15 years. Swiss machining is used for close-tolerance parts with high-volume, repeatable results.


Our Swiss Turning department produces parts between .010" and 0.75" in diameter. A wide variety of materials can be successfully machined using this technology. Plastics are notoriously difficult to machine, but Burger & Brown Engineering successfully processes them using Swiss Turning. Advantages to producing parts on these machines include:

Finer surface finish

Shorter lead times

Higher accuracy and repeatability for long runs

Material flexibility

Our Process

When a quote request is received, our Sales Manager and staff review requirements of each part. Material, manufacturing time, quality assurance and finish requirements are all taken into consideration during the quoting phase. When schedule and price are agreed upon, our staff enters the work order into the queue and production begins. Any questions along the way are communicated by the sales staff to the customer for timely resolution.

Frequently Asked Questions



The cutting tool operates very close to the guide bushing that holds the material. This stabilizes the material, reducing movement in the workpiece.

Swiss Lathes can produce more features in a single setup than conventional CNC Lathes due to the number of axes of control. Depending on part features, parts run on conventional CNC Lathes may require additional setups.

Swiss Lathes use oil-based coolant which transfers heat away from the part more efficiently than water-based coolants allowing faster cutting speed.
