Case machining

  • Usinage | Métier horloger | Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre
The need for extreme precision here incites man to entrust the fruit of his work to the machine. Parts in different materials (platinum, gold, steel, titanium…) are first stamped, then turned, milled and rectified. Drilled, shaped by grinding and lapping, then prepared for finishing operations. The minutiae of deburring as well as the pre-mounting require such delicacy that extreme manual dexterity is key.
