The company’s high precision (HP) head is now available for purchase as a replacement part. Until recently, the HP head was only included with the purchase of a new Davenport HP machine. The head was designed to machine the tougher materials and hold the tighter tolerances required by many customers in today’s marketplace. The HP head features ABEC 9 angular contact radial bearings, which deliver spindle run-out consistently less than 0.0005". The HP head also provides index repeatability to within 0.0006". The addition of the air-lube system significantly extends the life of the spindles, while reducing lubricating oil consumption by as much as 40 percent.
 
The HP head is designed to provide increased spindle rigidity, improved part diameter accuracy, improved surface finishes, improved part roundness, less part taper and deflection, and wear resistant coating that reduces galling and increases the bore life.
