Hydromat Rotary Transfer Machining

Swiss-made Hydromat rotary transfer machines allow us to manufacture complex parts in large quantities for lawn and garden, appliance, plumbing, automotive, defense, and aerospace applications. These rotary transfer machines have live tooling capabilities and are fitted with up to 16 machining stations. With our Hydromats, parts can be inverted to allow for rotary transfer machining operations on both ends during the production process.

The Hydromats can produce parts from blanks or bar stock up to 1.771" in diameter and 6" in length with rotary transfer machining. Parts from different grades of steel, aluminum, stainless steel, and brass are handled in our rotary transfer machining services. As the bar stock is stationary and the tooling is live in our Hydromats, multiple machining operations can be performed without removing the part from the machine. Our Hydromat rotary transfer machines can sequentially perform up to 16 machining operations including cut-off, burnishing, tapping, drilling, milling, and turning.
