Ingersoll machines are used to produce large and critical parts for the next generation crew vessels that will take astronauts into orbit and beyond.
Together with the National Science Foundation and AURA, it has built the mount and main rotator drive and other components for the world’s largest solar telescope – the Daniel KInouye Solar Telescope – on Hawaii, which is capable of ultra-high resolution observations of the sun.
On a more earthly level, an Ingersoll machine installed at an aircraft manufacturer holds the record for the world’s fastest titanium removal rate, while Innse-Berardi supplied a double Atlas Vision portal to produce components for a new energy production system for nuclear fusion - the ITER project.
Experienced in-house engineers and developers keep the Division at the forefront of machine tool technology. For instance, they are creating IIoT and Industry 4.0 interfaces that are redefining the capabilities and expectations of manufacturing and production machinery.
And they are pushing the communications and control envelope even further by pioneering artificial intelligence solutions for advancing machine tool performance.
