This company (TOMZ) can run its operations safely since it has implemented a mini-nut locking system specifically for Swiss-type automatic lathes. Cutting tool change-outs were sometimes a painful undertaking at TOMZ Corporation in Berlin, Connecticut. Operator injuries were occurring on some of the Swiss-type machines. The work areas, especially the small machine models, offer limited room for operators to change out worn or broken tools.
