Hydromat Rotary Transfer Machine – Versatile Modular System

The Hydromat Rotary Transfer Machine is a modular system consisting of horizontal and vertical tool spindles rigidly mounted around a precision cast iron ring.

This arrangement provides tremendous versatility and flexibility in a turnkey precision machining system while eliminating secondary operations. Hydromats are designed for very long-running jobs due to their fast cycle times and extreme quality capability. Depending on the specific workpiece, hydromat machining jobs can range from 150,000 EAU to several million.

Contact E.J. Basler today to learn more about how we can produce hydromat machined parts for you.

How do Hydromat Machines work?

Hydromat machines fit into the category of “rotary transfer” type machines. A slug is cut off from bar stock (part blanks such as forgings and castings can also be robotically loaded). Each workpiece is then loaded into a collet and indexed to the next machining station.

E. J. Basler has both 12 and 16 station-type machines that divide the work among each station (ex: turn, drill, ream, bore, thread, mill). Similar to multi-spindle logic, dividing up the machining stations greatly decreases the cycle time per part. The longest hydromat machining operation in the machine then determines the cycle time for the part.
