Swiss Machining

At dti EXACT™, we utilize Swiss machining to efficiently produce small, precision parts up to 1.25″ in diameter and 8″ in length. No other machining method can match the cycle times achievable by our multi-spindle Swiss machining centers. Specialized tooling is used to create custom thread, drill, and contour patterns while holding tolerances of ±0.0001″. Most standard and exotic metal or plastic materials can be machined to even tighter tolerances as needed. If volumes do not warrant the cost of tooling, CNC lathes can be used to produce parts with standard tools. By offering a variety of turning processes, we are able to accommodate a wide array of volumes and part types for the aerospace, automotive, medical, and other manufacturing industries.

Our machine shop was originally designed to support in-house manufacturing of dti EXACT™’s precision diamond orifices used in the waterjet cutting industry. That experience has allowed us to open up our machining services on a contract basis to customers looking for premium quality machining services from a customer-centered company. Turnaround times are very fast, averaging two weeks for most projects. We also offer brazing, adhesive bonding, and mechanical assembly services as needed. For more information about our Swiss machining capability, see the table below, or contact us directly.
