26 Jun: Machining the Future of Flight

The opportunity to hop on a plane and fly around the world is almost second-nature these days. It’s easy to forget that not that long ago the Wright Brothers were on a sandy beach in North Carolina desperately trying to get their flying machine off the ground. We all know the story of the two brothers who famously never gave up on their aviation ambitions but many don’t realize that their famous documented flight was several years in the making…

09 Feb: The Medical Industry is Growing & Swiss Precision Machining is Ready

Unprecedented demand for medical equipment and healthcare services are forecasted for the very near future. In fact, the medical industry is booming, and is considered to be “recession-proof” because of its importance. The aging population is probably one of the most significant trends affecting the medical industry right now. Recent news reports quote U.S. Census Bureau statistics and forecasts stating that by the year 2020, the number of people between the ages of 65 and 74 will increase 74 percent….

01 May: STEM Is Vital To Precision Machining

The Need For STEM The fact is this: Without an educated and skilled pool of domestic workers, firms such as Swiss Precision Machining would soon cease to exist. It is vital that we, as concerned citizens and certainly as parents, encourage those who are leaders in education to institute a vigorous national agenda promoting a focus on the academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, aka “STEM.” Our Future The future prospects of our nation’s children are dependent upon…
