Equipped with Ingersoll's Fluid Bearing Spindle, the HVM 800 operates at 40,000 rpm and is capable of removing 4600 cm3 of aluminum per minute. The machine was built by Ingersoll in order to demonstrate the productivity and reliability of this new spindle technology.
The second machine to be demonstrated, Ingersoll's High Velocity Profiler, offers a pallet size of 2M x 6M for 5-axis machining of large monolithic parts. Metal removal rates of up to 6440 cm3/min can be achieved using the HVP.
