Swiss Automation invests in capital equipment purchases of approximately 3 million per year. This investment reflects their commitment to serving their customers with the ability to produce complex parts at high speed and efficiency. Swiss Automation, as a leader in precision machining, always strives to use the latest technology in multi-axis CNC so they can service their customers with speed, quality, and precision.


A recent investment in such technology was the newest model from Eurotech Elite, the Multipla B465T3Y3, known as the ultimate unmanned multi-axis in Eurotech’s line-up of turn/mill centers. It has milling on every station and is the fastest, most accurate solution for many fluid power and medical parts. “I am very happy with Eurotech and the support we get from the team; they are a great machine,” said Marc Moran.


Swiss Automation, Inc. was founded over 50 years ago. Its first products were simple screw machine parts made on cam-operated screw machines. In 1984 CNC machines were added to the shop floor. By 1998, all mechanical equipment was phased out, and CNC machine tools were used exclusively.

The products are now much more complex and accurate and typically have features like cross-hole drilling and tapping, slot milling, polygon milling, "C" axis milling, miniature hole drilling, milling of non-conventional forms, and eccentric and off-center work. Customers can design complexity into their product features because they have the technology to produce it to their specifications. Swiss Automation produces parts for industries such as hydraulics, telecommunications, electronics, medical, dental, automotive, and instrumentation. They have a reputation for high-quality machining and are ISO 9001:2008 certified.



“We believe it is very important to train our team in all cutting-edge technology. This is why Eurotech’s lifetime programming classes are so valuable to Swiss Automation,” said Marc Moran, Foreman.


Swiss Automation’s local distributor is Quality Machinery, owned by Dave Woodcock. “It is a pleasure servicing Swiss Automation. They have a high production level, and the Eurotech solution enabled us to give them a big boost in productivity with fewer machines,” said Dave.


Swiss Automation has its own apprentice program, which is recognized as the best training method within the industry. New hires are trained in all facets of inspection, tool room procedures, machine maintenance, machine operation, tool making, and programming. Instruction is provided by Swiss Automation’s experienced machinists as well as the equipment builders themselves.

The facility in Barrington is 44,000 square feet, and the new building in Cary adds an additional 34,000 square feet. With the addition of the Cary facility to Swiss Automation Inc. our production has nearly doubled within the last 2 years thanks to the addition of over 50 employees and 25 new machines.
