Turning refers to a manufacturing area where revolution parts (screws, nuts, axles, etc.) are machined by removing material using one or more cutting tools.

The parts are machined in small, medium, or large series on conventional (cam) or numerically controlled laths (CNC). They are machined in sequence from coils (cam machines) or bars (CNC machines), with the aim of achieving high productivity and precision.

Generally, machined parts undergo subsequent operations (mechanical, thermal or chemical) before being used in the production of sub-assemblies.

ADAX SA is a confirmed partner since 1927 in micro-turning. Our production ranges from a few hundred to several million pieces in various materials and a wide range of finishing.

We have varied machines and equipment as ESCO (cam machines) or automatic with CNC machines. The type of machine used depends on both the complexity of the parts to be manufactured and the size of the series.

ESCO Cam Turning

Our equipment of cam machines includes more than 80 machines Escomatic (D2/D4/D6) perfectly maintained offering a great repeatability and a high precision and permits turning for dimensions between Ø 0.20 to 6.00 mm.

In difference with conventional machines, Escomatic machines lean on a single principle. Raw material, supplied with coils, does not have rotational movement. Only the tools, supported by rotative work-head, turns around the material, generating then the movement to remove the material.
Thanks to short cycles, this technique has the advantage to improve the productivity permitting then medium and high series production with competitive prices.
