The HS Indexing Chuck machine combines precision chucks with the indexing accuracy and reliability of the Hirth ring.

Available in 12 or 16 station models, the HS is fully integrated into the Hydromat product family, so the same modular components used in Hydromat's rotary transfer models are fully compatible with the HS machine,

This system is ideal for mid-to-high volume precision production of non-standard shaped castings or forgings, and is designed with the flexibility to easily accommodate families of parts.
