One of the most discussed technology advancements in 2017 will be the EPIC GEN II, the latest variation of the famous EPIC R/T platform that was first introduced at Hydromat’s Open House in 2003. Like that first EPIC machine introduced 14 years ago, this 2017 version is the first of its kind and will continue to be refined before its wide release as a featured machine at PMTS 2017. The first EPIC platform revolutionized Hydromat rotary transfer machining. This second generation of the EPIC R/T platform boasts advancements such as enhanced operations, production reporting, down time analysis, trouble shooting and preventative maintenance interval scheduling. These features, among others, will yield improved part set-ups, changeovers, process-tooling development and integrated tool monitoring. An upgraded servo control features absolute positioning, and a more efficient architecture that reduces failure points. The GEN II is a rotary transfer solution specifically made for advanced production solutions in 2017 and beyond.
All Hydromat rotary transfer machines feature a modular system consisting of as many as 16 horizontal and eight vertical toolspindle units, rigidly mounted around a precision cast iron ring. This arrangement has the capability of providing tremendous versatility and flexibility in a turn-key machining system. The precision ground Hirth ring assures table accuracy and reliability from station to station to within 0.0002". Non-rotating barstock ensures quiet, vibration-free cutting operations. EPIC R/T machines possess the general characteristics of their predecessors, maintaining integrity, reliability and flexibility. What sets this product line apart is Embedded Motion Control technology for special plug and play control architecture embedded into each toolspindle for fully independent and programmable functionality.
