This new iteration of the EPIC 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 EPIC II is a rotary transfer solution specifically made for advanced production solutions in the future. The wide variety of EPIC II rotary transfer machines offered by Hydromat give production machining professionals the right tool for the right job. The Hydromat system is the solution for the elimination of secondary operations by producing parts complete from bar stock, castings, forgings or cold formed blanks. The Hydromat machining platform reduces work in progress with additional cost reduction realized due to extremely short remnants that translate to significant material saving. Increased productivity is partially due to modular toolspindle system with quick-change presettable tool heads for easy changeovers.
