Swiss Style CNC Machining

Summit Steel & Manufacturing’s Swiss Style CNC Machining will ensure that your next metal fabrication project is flawlessly produced from beginning to end.


Summit Steel provides precision CNC Swiss machining services for a wide range of applications in a variety of industries including Medical, Aeronautics and Defense. We specialize in turning raw metal materials into highly precise and consistently accurate parts and components at a price that makes sense to your bottom line. Our Swiss CNC machine service minimizes lead times, conserves resources and expands manufacturing capabilities.

Precision equipment and specialized testing processes offer one of the most accurate means for efficiently creating small, intricate pieces in large quantities. Summit’s Swiss machining services include boring, drilling, knurling, milling and turning. No matter the complexity of your designs or the size of the job, we’re completely focused on delivering your order on time, within budget and to exact specifications.


Swiss Style CNC machining uses an automated lathing process that holds the product stationary while the machining tools move around it with a mobility of up to six distinct axes. This helps to greatly diminish inaccuracies caused by vibrations and deflection. As a result, tooling can reach a tolerance as low as .0002” with materials ranging from stainless steel, aluminum, brass, titanium, plastics and a variety of others.

The sliding headstock design used in CNC Swiss machining allows for precision cuts of parts of varying lengths and multiple diameters. Twin-spindle Swiss machining capabilities increase throughput and cycle times by simultaneously finishing both sides of the part. All of our Swiss CNC machining services offers repeatable precision while maximizing efficiency with fully automated manufacturing capabilities. 


Summit Steel’s Swiss CNC machines can work with products of diameters up to .82 inches and lengths of 3 inches, spinning them at speeds up to 10,000 RPM, while remaining otherwise perfectly still. Our modern equipment features automatic bar loaders and are capable of high-speed machining and around-the-clock production.

Our Oasis Inspection machines allow us to measure the products accurately and consistently by removing all human error from the measuring process and providing the ability to measure tolerances down to .0000001”.

As an ISO 9001:2008-certified steel manufacturing company, we only employ skilled technicians capable of ensuring the highest quality and safety standards. From climate-controlled machine shops to wireless connectivity, our state-of-the-art capabilities deliver faster turnarounds and more accurate results.


Our Swiss Style CNC Machines, combined with the incredible Oasis Inspection system, allow us to manufacture a huge variety of incredibly small and intricate products, from the tiny screws used for an artificial heart valve to crucial components for next wave aerospace and defense technology.

Every component, no matter how large or small, is manufactured and inspected with Summit Steel and Manufacturing’s extreme attention to detail and focus on quality. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
