Citizen Machinery Miyano, Co., Ltd, has its roots in two distinct companies: Miyano Machine and Citizen Machinery which merged in 2011. Toshimori Miyano, founder of Miyano, started manufacturing industrial precision files in Kameido, Tokyo in 1929, while Swiss-based Citizen Watch Company was established in 1930.
In 1970, Citizen Machinery utilized the know-how and technology developed for the in-house design and manufacture of its own equipment for the production of watches to begin external sales of NC automated lathes. The Citizen lathes are often referred to as Swiss-Style lathes.
A Swiss-style lathe is a specific design of lathe providing extreme accuracy. Most CNC Swiss-style lathes today use one or two main spindles plus one or two back spindles (secondary spindles). The main spindle is used with the guide bushing for the main machining operations. The secondary spindle is located behind the part, aligned on the Z axis.
As many Swiss lathes incorporate a secondary spindle, or sub-spindle, they also incorporate 'live tooling', which MD Tooling has in-stock and ready to ship.
- MD Tooling will continue to work tirelessly to provide solutions designed to maximize productivity and support our Citizen Machinery Miyano machine customers in their quest to remain aggressive and competitive in a worldwide market.
