Benz’s Hybrix is a star-shaped rotating tool carrier system with a fixed housing. The product has one of multiple motor spindles with integrated automatic toolchangers that can be used with any machine type. Designs in crown- and star-shaped turrets (single or multiple rows) are available.

Machines equipped with the Hybrix are said to demonstrate increases in power density and maximum speeds. Depending on the Hybrix design users choose, tools can be changed during machining time.
