Star's newest model designed to transform the productivity in complex working. The mechanical and control systems on the SW-20 are designed to minimize the non-cutting time to the highest level. In an effort to achieve reduced idle times, both mechanically and electrically through the latest software, allow complex components to be manufactured in the fastest possible times improving both production output & profitability. The SW-20's opposing gang-type tool post and a tool post (with Y-axis control function) exclusively designed for back end working ensures ultra-quick and flexible machining of complicated components.
Star Micronics' machine tools are mainly the so-called. Swiss Type Automatic Lathe (known as Sliding Head-type Automatic Lathe), which is the type suitable for small size precision component processing with high accuracy. This type of machine tools have been originally devised to mass-produce wristwatch components; however, the applications have been extended to the processing of not only automotive components but also digital equipment and medical components in recent years.
