Product information

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 limited production 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. Instead of cutting raw material into specific lengths, the HHV handles uncut bars and extrusions. The benefit of making many parts from the same size bar or extrusion is: reduced setup time, no workholding and a significant reduction in cycle time. Standard machining often requires multiple setups. The HHV machines parts complete in one setup, with no workholding.

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.

HHV 2 and HHV 3 designates the number of rotary tables.


”We guarantee 40% cycle time reduction with the HHV”
