Custom Turning Solutions: Screw Machines | Multi-Spindle | Rotary Transfer | Swiss CNC

GWS Turning Solutions Offer:

  • Reduced Downtime: Quick change tooling allows for faster changeovers without additional resetting. As fast as 60 seconds.
  • Ease of Use: Our system makes initial set-ups faster and easier, with simple access to adjust for diameter, center line height and lateral/angular movements.
  • Improved Cycle Times: Replace single point operations of complex profiles with customized carbide form inserts that can produce the same profile in a fraction of the time.
  • Greater Precision: Technologies like the ThriftShave can maintain finish tolerances as low as 5 - microns and finishes that require no additional grinding.
  • Less Scrap: Scrap due to improperly adjusted offsets, tool sharpening or inaccurate tooling.
  • Longer Life: Carbide inserts extend tool life well beyond that of traditional dovetails, generally made of High Speed Steel (HSS) or carbide tipped.
  • Greater Precision: With form inserts, more intricate profiles can be created with tighter tolerances and improved cutting geometry.
  • Faster Cycle Times: Carbide form inserts can run 2 - 3X speed of traditional HSS dovetails and can be up to 2X more efficient.
  • Faster Changeover: The ThriftChange® system permits for inserts or heads to be replaced, in the machine, without any additional adjustments. Changeovers in 60 seconds or less!
