Swiss choose space saving Optidrive


Accurate control was needed of multiple spindles used by watch manufacturers.


Optidrives were tested for several months on the machine tools and found to be accurate and reliable. They were approved and are now used on tooling machines throughout the world.


Supplying precision machine tools to major watch manufacturers around the world, Bumotec were looking for an extremely compact drive that offered outstanding reliability - both areas where the Optidrive E3 scored heavily.

Required to maintain extremely accurate control of multiple spindles, the drives underwent a rigorous test programme running for several months. Throughout these tests and subsequent applications throughout the world, there has not been a single Optidrive failure reported. As a result, Bumotec now approve Optidrive for use throughout its machine tool range.
