Contract Manufacturing

Machinery

As a manufacturer of complex three-dimensional micromechanical turned and milled parts, we have specialised in combining different machining techniques for optimum results: CNC turning, CNC milling and wire erosion. A particular strength is the combined machining of small parts, whereby the pre-milled or pre-turned material is often reworked on wire EDM. This results in components that could not be produced with only one method.

We have optimised all our machines in order to be able to carry out even complex orders efficiently.

Our machinery allows us to produce micromechanical parts for different industries as well as components of watch movements in small series. In this context, it is interesting to know that a mechanical watch movement is made of up to 300 individual parts, all of which are finely machined and fit into a space of only 2cm2.

In addition to traditional machines, our CNC equipment includes the following machines:

Turning:

7-axis bar-turning up to a diameter of 20.00mm, gear cutting in both dividing and hobbing processes, milling with fully automatic material feed.

We also mill internal threads from M0.35 upwards in steel, brass, titanium and beryllium bronze.

5-axis ultra-precision lathe with tapping spindle, bar capacity up to 42 mm, chuck turned parts up to 150 mm

CNC machining centres:
3 axes, spindle speed up to 35’000 rpm

automatic material feed

3 axes, spindle speed up to 40’000 rpm

automatic material feed

3 axes, spindle speed 25’000 rpm

automatic material feed

Wire EDM:

5-axis, precision wire EDM machine with fine cut option, standard wire 0.1 mm

Laser:

100 x 100 mm, maximum workpiece height 150 mm, automatic material feed, engraving, surface structures, 3D processing of dials

4 3D printing systems, both for prototype construction and contract manufacturing

All processing machines are equipped with a zero-point clamping system (palletisation) System 3R. [Zero-point clamping and palletising system / reference system]

For special processes, we also develop processing machines from scratch (e.g. EWS gear cutting machine, weight 1700 kg)

Other machinery

  • Manual lathe Schaublin 102 with cross slide with digital display
  • Manual lathe Schaublin 120 with draw and lead screw
  • Various manual Schaublin and Aciera milling machines
  • Training boring machine Hauser 2WA with digital display
  • CNC milling machine with manual tool change for prototype construction Spindle speed max. 10’000 rpm
  • Ultrasonic cleaning system for the fine cleaning of the parts

Special tools

Our jig and fixture construction department has specialised in the production of assembly aids.

Especially the assembly of smallest components is simplified with a good work preparation by using assembly aids. Depending on the order, we produce special gauges in which the components are correctly positioned and protected during the entire assembly process.

Qualified workforce

Machines and tools are only as good as the people operating them. UhrTeil AG is proud to have a team of dedicated people who have been with us for long time.

All our workshop employees are highly qualified and proficient in 3D-CAM programming and program their machines themselves.
