Prepare cheese sauce: Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; whisk in flour until smooth. Cook 1 minute, whisking constantly. Gradually whisk in milk; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Whisk in Swiss and Parmesan cheeses, salt, and red pepper, whisking until cheeses are melted and sauce is smooth.
Brush melted butter evenly on 1 side of 16 bread slices. Place, butter sides down, on wax paper.
Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. Swiss cheese on top of each of 8 bread slices; top evenly with chicken, tomato slices, and 1 cup warm cheese sauce. Sprinkle with bacon and remaining cheese, and top with remaining bread slices, butter sides up.
Cook sandwiches, in batches, in a preheated panini press 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with remaining warm cheese sauce for dipping.
