GET MORE FOR LESS
Our CNC Swiss machines are well known for giving you more without paying more. We understand the importance of these machines and want to provide our customers with the tools they need to create their parts or products. The KSI Swiss CNC machine is designed to work hard so you don’t have to. You can turn out more products and parts in less time than you can with other similar types of machines. This is why Swiss machines are the only types of machines we offer at KSI Swiss.
The Story of KSI Swiss
January 1, 1989
Swiss Lathe Users
We began our journey in the 1990s as people who purchased and operated CNC Swiss Lathes. Back then, there weren't very many options, and they were prohibitively expensive.

KMT/Nexturn's First Importer
In our quest to find better, more affordable options for use in our own shop, we found a small machine tool builder in South Korea and became the first importer of the Nexturn line in the USA. We imported them first for our own use, then continued to sell over 100 Nexturn CNC Swiss machines all across the country.

We Decided to Build Our Own
After the instant success of the Nexturn line, and after hitting some roadblocks of engineering with the build teams, we decided to build our own line of machines in the USA. We wanted to control the engineering, quality, and be able to produce the most feature-packed machines on the market, for their price range.
