CNC and Swiss machines are excellent for lower volume work or larger parts that cannot be produced on high volume equipment such as Hydromats or Multi Spindle screw machines. Part to part cycle times are generally between 1 to 5 minutes. Benefits of CNC and Swiss are lower cost of setup and capability of precision tolerances. CNC and CNC Swiss style machines are typically competitive when annual volumes are between 1 to 10,000 pieces.The primary disadvantage of these processes is they are slow compared to their high volume counterparts. This results in higher unit prices when producing larger volumes (>10,000 eau).
