What is fixed head Swiss-type lathe?
A Swiss-type lath, by definition, is a specific design of turning lathe providing extreme accuracy and precision standard, and there are two categories inside this machinery inventory. A fixed head Swiss-style lathe holds the work piece with both a collet and a guide bushing. The collet locates behind the guide bushing, and the tools sit in front of the guide bushing, normally holding stationary on the Z-axis. In the fixed head module, the fixed head lathe is a fixed headstock. The work piece is held in a chuck and extends into the machine enclosure as a cantilever or can be supported on the end of the tailstock if the work piece is the length for some cases.
