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.

  • Don’t Forget The Drawbar

    The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.

  • Too Small To Touch

    Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.

  • The Humble Pull Stud

    I’ve said that the toolholder is the least appreciated element in many milling processes, but the pull stud (or retention knob) is perhaps the least appreciated component of the toolholder.
