Hydromat HB 32/45-16 Rotary Transfer Machine image

The HB 32/45-16 rotary transfer machine is a modular system consisting of up to 16 horizontal and 8 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 solution.

With 1-3/4" capacity, the HB 32/45-16 machine is ideally suited to produce parts from bar stock or blanks up to 6" in length.

Consistent high production & precise machining, combined with the elimination of costly secondary operations make the HB 32/45-16 machine an outstanding solution for cost-effective manufacturing.


  • Up to 16 horizontal & 8 vertical machining stations
  • Eliminates secondary operations
  • Extreme accuracy and reliability of a Hirth ring
  • Several different unit sizes available
  • Coolant chiller optional
  • Multiple loading and chip system options
