Witzig & Frank Re-enters U.S. Market with Hydromat
The German company has partnered with Hydromat to serve the U.S.

Machining Center Provides Complete Five-Axis Machining in Single Setup
Hydromat will display Licon mt's LiFlex II 444 twin-spindle machining center, suitable for production of small- to medium-sized components ranging to 445 mm.

Transfer Machine Offers Bar Positioning Accuracy
Hydromat's Epic R/T 45-12 is a collet-style rotary transfer machine for precisely cutting stock sizes as large as 1.75" round, 1.5" hex and 1.25" square, and as long as 6".

CNC Technology Add-on for Hydraulically Driven Machines
Hydromat offers two add-on systems, the Epic Remote System (RS) and Epic System Six (SS), for upgrading older, hydraulically driven Legacy-style Hydromat rotary transfer machines to CNC capability.

ICON Premieres PKM
ICON Technologies, a division of Hydromat (Booth S-8348), is showing the company’s new Tripod 700S Powerflex for the first time in North America.

Indexing Chuck Machines for Precision Production of Irregular-Shaped Parts
The Hydromat Epic R/T HS 16 indexing chuck rotary transfer machine produces precision metalcutting for cast parts, near-net shapes, profiled stock and standard bars.

Precision Transfer Machining
The EPIC R/T is equipped with Embedded Motion Control (EMC) technology.

Independent Spindle Motors
The updated Tornos MultiAlpha 6 × 32 features a 1.260" (1.340") diameter bar capacity with the work spread over six spindles.

MTConnect Is For Real
Introduced at IMTS 2008, this communications protocol for CNC machines and other manufacturing equipment is already helping shops and plants implement effective machine monitoring systems. Although these "early adopters" are motivated by the long-term promise of enterprise-wide efficiency gains, their experience with pilot projects shows that benefits derived in the short term are substantial and worthwhile.

Multi-Spindle Offers Eight Independent Spindle Speeds
The MultiSigma 8 × 24 produces complex parts in one setup. Eight independent spindles allow for high flexibility, while an integrated robot allows for the automatic unloading of parts into a pallet. The machine is supplied with the latest motorspindles, featuring synchronous motors.

Production Machining Center Integrates Rotary Transfer Concepts
A new machine platform combines CNC rotary transfer philosophy with machining center principles to offer an alternative to stand-alone production lines and flexible machining systems.

Flexible Machining Center With Multiple Stations

Lathe Spreads Work Over 6 Independent Spindles

New Twist On Rotary Transfer Machines
Rotary transfer machines are productive high volume producers of a wide variety of workpieces. While traditional rotary transfer machines are very capable of volume production of complex workpieces, they tend to be more dedicated with regard to job changeover, with the exception of families of parts.

Why Using The Latest Technology Simply Isn't Enough
Suppliers to the automotive industry know they've got to be competitive, have consistent, repeatable quality and deliver on time, every time. Often having the latest technology is a crucial competitive advantage. But sometimes having and using the latest equipment isn't enough. Here's why.

Hot Technology Key To Valve Maker's Success
Rotary transfer machines do the trick for this valve maker.

Doing More With More
From its founding 50 years ago, this Portland, Oregon, screw machine job shop has held fast to a philosophy of diversification. The theme carries across its equipment selections, processing decisions, personnel selection and customer base. It's an interesting example of successful application of multi-processing equipment by a multi-dimensional company.

Eliminating Unnecessary Manufacturing Steps Just One Part Of Good Partnering
This shop is very serious about cutting inefficiencies from it's processes, and that includes picking a supplier who is focused on the same issues of eliminating waste and adding value.

Why Not Change What You're Doing?
This Canadian screw machine shop built early success with automatic and mechanical multispindles. Introduction of rotary transfer technology has accelerated growth and helped solve other production problems. Here's why they made the move and how it has impacted their shop.
