ICON Technologies 6-250 Mill/Turn Machine image

Up To Eight Tools In The Cut At Once

The ICON part sizes range from a 2" cube to an 8" cube and can put up to eight tools in the cut at once with up to 8 machining units, four horizontal and four vertical units, each with a 10-tool changer fully equipped for your specific applications. Four cutting stations, each with integrated pallet changers produce 5 sided machining with 4 axis interpolation.

A Fanuc CNC controller has been incorporated as standard equipment on all ICON 6-250 machining centers.

These benefits coupled with the ICON’s flexibility creates a highly innovative solution to produce parts complete, with fast cycle times and a superior surface finish.

The Ultimate in Productivity & Flexibility

The unique design of the ICON 6-250 combines flexible machining center principles with Hydromat's rotary transfer production philosophy while incorporating engineering excellence with the finest materials and components.


ICON Advantages

The ICON 6-250 offers an increase in speed and accuracy over other FMS type machining configurations. The ICON excels in production runs of near-net shapes, castings, and complex parts cut from billets.

Productivity has always been at the core of Hydromat's philosophy. The ICON's features combined with it's flexibility creates a highly innovative solution to produce parts complete, with fast cycle times and a superior surface finish. ICON project engineers work hand-in-hand with customers to develop a unique, tailored manufacturing process solution. An engineering committee comprised of a wide array of manufacturing disciplines, monitors every phase of each project. SPC values are carefully weighed during project evaluations.

What Makes the ICON 6-250 A Unique Productivity Center?

  • Highly productive and flexible machining center for part sizes from a 2" cube to an 8" cube
  • 8 Machining units with tool changers, fully equipped for specific applications
  • 6 stations with integrated pallet changers
  • 5 sided machining with 4 axis interpolation
  • Fanuc CNC controller as standard equipment
  • Load station designed for manual or robotic production configurations
  • Four horizontal machining units and four vertical machining units on all fully equipped ICON 6-250 Machining Centers
