REDUCING COSTS IS OUR JOB! Are you a manufacturer of precision turned parts or drilling and milling components and want to considerably reduce your part costs? Then you are in the right place! Our insertable form tools are the quickest and most efficient way to cost reductions. With grooving instead of single-point turning, we can provide savings of up to 40%! Typical purchase orders are ranging from 3 to 50 pieces. Due to our highly efficient processes, even the smallest quantities can be quickly and economically manufactured. We also provide tooling with highest efficiency and precision for applications in the medical industry. How do we do it? You can find out on our website or by simply calling us. The fastest way to receive your quotation is by emailing us your part drawing!

Welcome to Schwanog- The COST-CUTTER!

  • The companies tooling systems offers superior quality and high efficiency in the manufacturer of precision parts in areas such as medical, automotive, aerospace and others industries.

    The insertable tooling system can be applied but is not limited to applications such as OD and ID grooving, form drilling, thread whirling, single-point threading, turning and milling, broaching of serrations, shaving and skiving and polygon turning which often amounts to vast cost reductions of over 40%.

    The system can be used on any type of machine such as swiss-type, conventional and multi-spindle automatic lathes, rotary transfer machines, horizontal and vertical milling centers etc.

    The main advantages of the insertable tooling systems lies in quick tool changeovers directly in the machine due to the insertable tool, resulting in immense reduction of machine downtime while significantly increasing productivity as well as offering superior surface finish quality and high repeatability through its proven tooling system.

    With its PWP and PWP-D insertable form drill system, Schwanog addresses the problem of high setup times as the insert holder stays in the machine during insert changeover. This design allows the center height to stay unchanged. The insertable carbide tool is ground individually, according to customer specifications and can hold a min. tolerance of ± 0.02 mm and repeatability is 0.02mm.

    The form drill systems are available in various carbide grades.

    As the insertable PWP and PWP-D form drill systems are limited to a maximum bore diameter of 28mm and a depth of 16mm Schwanog added solid carbide drills to complement its line of form drill products for larger bore sizes and deeper holes. The solid carbide drills are ground individually, according to customer specifications and can hold a minimum tolerance of ± 0.02 mm as well.

    Schwanog's insertable tooling systems for the medical industry offer superior quality and high efficiency in the manufacturer of bone screws.

    Schwanog has perfected thread whirling due to convincing process safety, chip control (burr free threads), superior surface finish quality and high repeatability (0.02mm) through its proven whirling system.

    Available thread whirling systems come with 6, 9 and 12 custom cutters, ground individually, according to customer specifications for either single or double-lead threads and can be adapted to any whirling attachment.

  • Conventional machining of serrations on turned parts requires a separate process either while milling or broaching. Before either of these finishing processes can take place the parts generally must go through a cleaning process.

    With Schwanog’s broaching tool, manufacturer of serrated turned parts are able to use a completely new approach on a conventional lathe with C-axis, in a single operation which eliminates the cleaning process.

    The broaching tool carries a quarter circle geometry with 6 teeth and only the first tooth carries a complete (finish depth) profile while the remaining 5 teeth are considered roughing teeth.

    Broaching of serration is a two-step process. With the first step the spindle does not move and the broach feeds three times until the first tooth is completely established. With the second step the spindle starts indexing and the five successive teeth are continuously broached until the finished depth is reached.

    The advantages of this system are significant cost savings due to setup time reduction and reduction of part cycle time due to faster production cycles.
