From Earth to space

 

ADAX SA is a micromechanics company based in Bevaix that produces precision axes and pins. Since its creation in 1927, Adax SA specializes in precision axes turning. This is thanks to this activity that the company gets its name: Atelier de Décolletage d’AXes.

The company, present in watch industry, diversified then in production of complex parts with high value-added for automotive, aeronautics and medical industries.

Micron is the reference unity for ADAX SA. There are not many companies in the world that can reach thousandth of a millimetre. To reach this precision, all processes are developed in our Technique & Methods department and all operations are internally ensured: Escomatic or CNC turning, Grinding, Lapping and many other finishing types.

From Earth to Space

From mechanical movement of famous swiss timepieces to the medical industry that require micrometric precision, we won our ticket for the automotive and railway industries: the rail, the road and then in the wake of car circuits. Our products equip the teams for the Formula 1 World Championship, a competitive and unforgiving test bench. Then we continued in the air with our barrel rollers that are now a reference for large aircraft manufacturers. It was than in space, aboard space shuttles, that we explored other domains and territories. 

ADAX SA: The birth of an obsession

ADAX SA is the cradle of Swiss Microtechnology and Watchmaking. Initially, we were the preferred supplier for Swiss watch brands producing great-complexity timepieces. It is at their contact that we have developed rigour, reliability, precision and that we have pushed to its extreme the mastery of miniaturization.

Men of Passion

1927, while Charles Lindbergh has just made the first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, 5,800 km in 33 hours and on the other side of the Channel, the first telephone service between London and New York is open to the public, in Peseux, in Switzerland, the first turned parts are produced at Adax workshop.

Today, nearly 100 years later, more than 70 professionals are dedicated to delivering more than 100 million parts a year around the world.
