Though associated with manufacturing processes, High Speed Machining is outstanding in its specific performance, environmental and organisational needs:
-    Its performances are clearly higher than those of traditional machining : the cutting speed is achieved thanks to spindles which turn up to 60.000 round/min and movements are 10 to 20 times faster than those for traditional machining
-    The associated environment should allow for the achievement of a high level of performance through the use of the latest and most updated technology : CAD, CAM, shrinking, balancing for tools which are highly technical themselves, and an adapted/focused vocational training for the employees
-    The organisation inside the workshop as within the company itself, should be organised so as to cater for the achievement of a high level of performance for HSM.
These fundamental points demand specific competences from very different sectors such as: industry, academic and training institutes and research, all united in the task of bridging the technological gap, HSM. It is necessary to control and get over the gap to join HSM

People concerned
-    Manufacturers in mass production, Aeronautics, Car industry, mould makers, subcontractors...
-    Schools, universities, vocational training institutes.

The objectives of B-UGV are:
-    To link both means and skills in the  building of  innovative projects
-    To tie together tools, machines and people in the realisation of R& D projects
-    To propose vocational training on concrete subjects related to the different processing techniques in industrial manufacturing or related to the specificities of HSM.
