26 Apr Red Dot Design Award – Tornos SwissNano
Tornos Swissnano at the Red Dot design award 2014
SwissNano is an automatic turning machine requiring the smallest footprint market-wide. Unhindered access for the operator is ensured through the frontal design and the ergonomy, allowing to use the entire working area from a 180 degrees angle.
With the aim of creating a new category of machine that stands out resolutely against other products. With its aesthetics and practical aspects it is appealing to the young, upcoming generation of precision engineers, where an emotional touch to ones working environment becomes a decisive asset. This is supported by the integrated and wireless monitoring and programming capacities through a tablet.
The SwissNano was designed to meet the demand for small workpieces requiring very high precision. For example, its kinematics enable the machine to produce two thirds of watch movement components, from the simple to the most complex,including cutting ,with excellent finishes. Its capability extends beyond horological applications to include any type of workpiece requiring extreme quality and precision. The kinematic structure was designed for exemplary balance and thermal management enables the operating temperature to be achieved very rapidly.
