Decolletage – turning in the "microscopic" range
Decolletage, generally refers to turning work in the microscopic range for the manufacture of very small turned parts, such as those frequently used in the watch industry, the medical industry, in microtechnology and in micromechanics. Decolletage usually takes place on Swiss-type lathes, such as those in use on our premises.
Unlike traditional decolletage, with rather short-chipping brass or steel on smaller lathes, our larger Swiss-type lathes are also continually used for processing longer-chipping materials, such as stainless steel, aluminum and more. They can handle work pieces with diameters from a few tenths of a millimeter to 32 mm. Thus, high-precision mechanical work is possible not only in the microscopic, but also the macroscopic range. You too can use the small but significant advantages of decolletage!
