The Hydromat Epic R/T 25-12 is a collet-style rotary transfer machine for precision metalcutting of stock sizes up to 1.0” round, 0.75” hex, and 0.50” square with a part length up to 4”. This machine uses 12 horizontal tool spindles and has the capacity of as many as six vertical tool spindles, featuring as much as 18 tools in the cut at once. It also has the rigidity to handle all components and all material types within its work envelope. Hydromat’s non-rotating barstock design provides quiet, vibration-free operation, the company says.

All Hydromat rotary transfer machines are built as modular systems consisting of horizontal and vertical tool spindles rigidly mounted around a cast base with high precision machining of all critical surfaces. This arrangement provides tremendous versatility and flexibility in a turnkey machining system. This current version of the Epic R/T 25-12 machine features the bar change stop, an automatic hard stop built into the bar feeder that further refines bar position by giving accurate position reference for the end of the new bar. It then begins the countdown for the remnant based on a known and fixed distance.
