Improve your CNC Swiss Operations with Skilled Material

With the introduction of CNC Swiss machines in the 1970’s, a new era of precision manufacturing was born. Gone were the days of just purchasing standard machining bar; the need for better material with tighter tolerances had arrived – and Boston Centerless was there from the beginning.

Today, CNC Swiss machining is one of the fastest growing sectors in the machining world. Ultra-precise, specialty alloys, and lights-out-operations are all terms of importance in the CNC Swiss community.

Even though the technology continues to evolve and the capabilities continue to expand, two major, long-standing issues remain ever more prominent in today’s marketplace:

    1.  The lack of skilled labor in the workforce to keep these machines running 
    2.  Constant market pressure to reduce costs

Boston Centerless understands these problems and has taken a fresh, new approach to address these challenges first hand with a concept we call Skilled Material

Skilled Material is a concept that encompasses many facets of raw material properties, manufacturing processing and industry know-how to optimize your CNC Swiss operations - while reducing your overall cost of production.

Skilled Material incorporates all of the elements below: 

  • Raw Material Selection – only using mills and suppliers who offer the best, most consistent quality 
  • Ultra Precision / Variation Reduction – understanding how specific Diameter, Straightness and Roundness tolerances can dramatically affect CNC Swiss screw machining operations
  • Material integrity and traceability throughout the process 
  • Years of experience and partnerships within the CNC Swiss machining industry to truly understand Swiss operations
  • Supply chain management 
  • And most importantly: getting the right material to customers when promised

In its simplest terms, Skilled Material allows you to more than offset premium material cost by dramatically reducing the need for skilled machine operators to deal with variations in material, while maximizing machine uptime and through-put. Skilled Material enables Lights-Out Operations and ultimately lowers the total cost of your CNC Swiss operation.
