Where do you find the latest rotary transfer technology and mill-turn centers as well as German food, beer, live music from a German heritage band under one roof? At the biennial Hydromat Oktoberfest open house event. This year, the event was held on Oct. 21-23 at the company’s St. Louis headquarters.

As guests viewed the machines while they were being built, Hydromat associates continued to work on projects in various stages of completion, giving attendees a glimpse of the assembly process up close, and an opportunity to interact with both technicians and sales personnel.

The open house highlighted the company’s Epic Gen II, the new variation of the Epic R/T platform that was first introduced at Hydromat’s open house in 2003.

Also, the ICON 6-250 was well represented with three machines on the assembly floor, one in its final stages of the build process, and two more in the first stages of construction that will be delivered next year.

Derek Korn, senior editor at Modern Machine Shop, PM’s sister publication, attended the Hydromat Oktoberfest this year. Read what he learned about Hydromat’s technology at the event here
