Icon Technologies, a division of Hydromat, offers a multi-station mill-turn center, the Icon 6-150. Designed with four machining stations and two dedicated loading/unloading stations, the machine was developed around flexible machining principles. Equipped with a six-position table, it shuttles pallets to four machining modules for fast, ultra-precision cutting.

Each of these four machining modules is equipped with one cartridge-style motor spindle. Each spindle type is selected based on the type of cutting to be performed at that station. Icon offers high torque spindles in the following configurations: 10,000 rpm, 20,000 rpm, 42,000 rpm, and 60,000 rpm. These spindles are air-purged and liquid cooled, or permanently grease lubricated, and therefore, are virtually maintenance-free.

The machine is equipped with four servo driven, direct drive B-axis motors. These B-axis motors are installed on stations 2, 3, 5 and 6 and have a position accuracy of ± 4 seconds. Each table is equipped with a zero point clamping system to clamp the base pallet to the B-axis motors. The positional repeatability of these pallets is 0.002 mm. An optional 350-Nm disc brake can be added for precise positioning during heavy cutting at an elevated level of force. Stations one and four are for loading, unloading, gaging, A/B loading and inverting for sixth side machining. 

These four cutting stations produce five-sided machining with four-axis interpolation; six sides, if the idle station is used for workpiece inversion. Each machining unit is equipped with its own HSK E40 size, 12-tool changer, allowing for maximum tooling flexibility. HSK E32 size is available as an option.
