It can machine ALUMINUM, STAINLESS STEEL, TITANIUM (Grade 5), BRONZE, BRASS, DELRIN (ACETAL), and other material with high precision. As a mini CNC Swiss lathe, the APSX-NANO has a max capacity of 20 inches long bar stock at a time. It provides stationary support for the workpiece while the part is machined. This design enables the machine to hold tight tolerances and produce parts back to back. It enables the creation of very small and very precise parts. In fact, the NANO can make .04-in. diameter parts with less than 0.0002-in. tolerance.

Industry applications:

Medical and orthopedics: Bone screws, anterior cervical plates, fracture components, bone drills, surgical taps, orthopedic devices, surgical instruments, bone shavers and more.

Dental: Titanium implants, dental taps and drills, abutments and locking screws, dental driver instruments, orthodontic components and more.

Minimally invasive surgery: Screws, plates, housings, distal tips, cones, connecting rods, pins, grippers, surgical drivers and more.

Military vehicles and aviation: Cargo handling systems, guided missiles, fuel systems, cockpit instrumentation, seatbelt mechanisms, cabin pressure control, wing flap actuation, antenna control, drones and more.

Other: Aerospace, automotive, drones, firearms (small arms and ammunition) and electronics components with multiple applications

Note: PC, keyboard, and pendant are included. APSX CNC software is installed and has an easy-to-read user interface. The APSX NANO CNC SWISS LATHE also has an adjustable mist (coolant) on the point of machining.

Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon and a basic part of industries such as construction and the military due to its strength, durability, customizability, and quick fabrication. Of the several types of steel available in the market, the alloy steel vs stainless steel comparison is one of the many comparisons common among manufacturers who want to work with steel.
