- Abbriviation for high Speed Cutting whereas the speed may reach up to 36000 Upm.
- tools see thermoGrip
- CNC milling machines for speed rate machining (HGZ) which operate with especially high cutting speed and high federate, usually for metal- and plastic processing in the model, shape and tool production.
- In woodworking as well, machines with a spindle speed of approx. 30000 1/min and a cutting speed above 30 m/s can be used, e.g. for nesting, grooving-, section- or inline millings with low tool diameters, a high milling proportion and little tool change
- tools and clamping tools have to comply to far higher requirements regarding balance, stiffness and accuracy, precision.
