The HHV (Horizontal High Velocity) was developed in close cooperation with the world’s largest aircraft manufacturers. Since its introduction, it quickly became the first choice of top performing machine shops.
The HHV is a universal machining center for bar or extrusion components. It is ideal for short repetitive runs, nesting, or high-volume production. Raw material is loaded from the left side into the machine, the HHV automatically pulls the raw material into position for machining and delivers finished parts into a part catcher. No pre-cutting of the raw material required, the HHV handles uncut bars and extrusions. The benefit of making many parts from the same size bar or extrusion is: reduced set-up time, no work holding and a significant reduction in cycle time. Standard machining often requires multiple setups. The HHV machines parts complete in one setup, with no work holding.
Your machining cycle time at the process design stage: up to 50% faster machining time over conventional processes, better than 95% machine uptime, and, true Lean and Green production.
