“Every day we receive demands for the optimal machining solutions to achieve increased productivity, where the cost per part is key. I have always had many new ideas and machining solutions ongoing in my mind, almost too many, and one of them was the inverted machining solution. Inverted machining gives us the opportunity to gain improved handling of removed material with a more rigid machine and there are many advantages over traditional processing methods.”

WHAT IS INVERTED MACHINING?
The short answer would be that an inverted machining center is a vertical machining center turned upside down. An inverted machining center is, in other words, a machine processing from below. But the question has a more complex answer as inverted machining is an entirely new revolutionary manufacturing method when it comes to machining.
