The article looks at developments of small part manufacturing using Swiss tooling. Due to the increasing role of electronics and hydraulics for control-units and mechanisms, a number of automotive repairers have taken advantage of small tools. Components machined with Swiss tools are usually made from bar stock in sliding head machines and range from 0.5 to 32 millimeters. New developments in parting and grooving are also found in Swiss machining operations that are not part of a modern sliding-head machine.
