MMS SEPTEMBER 2018 138 IMTS 2018 Products On Display Rotary Transfer Machine Expands Capacity of Previous Models Hydromat's Eclipse 12-100 12-station rotary transfer machine updates previous models with a heavy casting mounted on a frame of welded steel. The machine casting is 2 m in diameter, nearly twice as large as the company's previous 12-station machine. The ductile iron casting is designed for the use of semi-permanent tool spindles, each with three-axis capa- bility to eliminate the need to either change tool spin- dle sizes or add three-axis flanges for different cutting processes. The machine features all-electric servo spindles and slides. No hydraulics are needed for tool-spindle motion, and the tool spindles are larger than previous spindles to accom- modate heavier cuts and larger parts. The bar-fed collet version of the machine has work- piece diameters ranging to 65 mm (2.5") and features workpiece lengths ranging to 180 mm (7"), with 127 mm (5") of material outside the collet. An indexing-chuck version features a table with vertical chucks capable of 360-degree rotation of the workpiece. This system accommodates mid- to high-volume, precision pro- duction of irregularly shaped castings or forgings, and its flexible design accommo- dates families of parts. The indexing-chuck machine uses hydraulically actuated, self-centering, two- or three- jaw chucks or custom clamp fixtures. | Hydromat Inc. | South, Level 3, Booth 338348 Everything you need to efficiently and reliably process your machining scrap.
