Machine Spotlight: Citizen CNC Turning Machines

164147200 (2)Did you know that Citizen machines are the most widely accepted Swiss-type CNC turning machines in the world?

What we, at Standby Screw, love about these machines is that they can produce an extensive variety of products.  From electronics, fiber optics, automobiles, tools, valves, and fasteners, the sliding headstock technology paired with a guide that offers an extra point of material support for an efficient machining process.

These turning centers are able to eliminate material vibration and harmonics in order to provide precise machining.  Citizen turning machines are ideal for producing simple and complex parts that require multiple operations!

Industry Spotlight: CNC Programming

Did you know that Standby Screw uses PartMaker CAD/CAM for our CNC Programming? The Delcam PartMaker is the world-leading CAM software for production machining. programming

PartMaker applies two unique patented technologies for automating the programming of multi-axis Turn-Mill Centers and Swiss-type lathes and has been developed specifically to support the unique capabilities of these machines intuitively.

A unique feature is the powerful 3D simulation that allows you to visualize the entire manufacturing process to avoid costly errors and collisions before sending the NC program to the machine.

If your goal is to have a CAM system that:

  • Reduces machine setup time for new jobs by over 50%
  • Gives you the power to take on tough jobs but is easy to use
  • Programs all CNC machines
  • Generates correct NC codes

At Standby Screw, we appreciate innovation that makes tough tasks easier and makes production time more efficient. Get more details on the PartMaker, here.
