Flexible lightweight maximizes the field of application of milling/turning machines

It is a combination of the proven lathe chuck of the series ROTA-S plus and ROTA-S plus 2.0 with extended guideways, and transforms them into large, light chucks, which are particularly versatile in use. Compared to conventional lathe chucks used for large clamping diameters, the weight with ROTA-S flex drops down to 60%. At an identical…

Maximum productivity with optimum flexibility

The INDEX MS40C multi-spindle automatic turning machine is suited for machining up to 40 mm in diameter. Customized configuration with up to 12 CNC cross-slides, Y-axes, synchronous spindles, and further options enables high-productivity machining of bars as well as chucked parts.  The INDEX MS40C is part of the successful MultiLine series that accommodates loading of bars…

Focusing on the replacement of cam-controlled multi-spindle lathes

With the INDEX MS16C of the MultiLine series, the Esslingen multi-spindle specialists present a CNC multi-spindle lathe featuring six spindles for up to 16 mm diameter parts. The six-spindle machine, built from a multi-spindle modular component system, is intended to replace the widely used but costly to set up fast cam-controlled multi-spindle lathes that still dominate…

Two 5-Axis Systems in One Machine

Esslingen-based machine manufacturer INDEX has combined two complete 5-axis machining systems in its R300 turning/milling center. In two independent sub-systems, one motorized milling spindle and one assigned work spindle are able to completely machine complex parts, in particular short bars and chuck parts with clamping device diameters up to 315 mm, simultaneously, providing extreme productivity…

Universal Turning in a New Dimension

With the IT600, the INDEX Group opens a new chapter in universal turning. Through the use of field-proven components, the flexible IT600 is designed to manufacture medium and small lot sizes up to batch size 1 of mold making, tooling and prototyping considerably faster and more economically than with conventional universal lathes. By the innovative…

TRIBOS Polygonal Clamping Technology: Now available for the pioneering HSK-E 20 spindle interface

The SCHUNK TRIBOS-Mini HSK-E 20 polygonal chuck is the first standardized precision toolholder for micro machining with the pioneering HSK-E 20 spindle interface. In comparison to conventional short taper interfaces, the HSK-E 20 interface provides an axially flat work surface for the toolholder, ensuring excellent change and positioning accuracy. Also, the narrow tolerances of the…

Automatic turning to perfection

  The compact machine design of the ABC65 with up to 3 simultaneously working tool carriers not only ensures high productivity, but also provides a high performance density with a main spindle of 65 mm bar capacity and a swivel counter spindle for extensive rear end machining. At only 5,5 m2 footprint (without bar loader),…

TENDO hydraulic expansion power also for Ø 16 mm now

This price-optimized precision  mounting opens up new efficiency potentials by downsizing the tools. It has been possible to achieve a high run-out accuracy, torque transmission, and optimum vibration damping, and to some extent a higher time-chip-volume than with a 20 mm diameter shank during trichoid milling. TENDO E compact is the answer to the increasing…

A success story of productive bar and chuck machining

The automatic production lathe INDEX C100 is one of the most successful CNC production lathes. This machine has set industry standards in terms of productivity, damping, rigidity and tool lives. The design of two Y-axes opposite each other has given the user an enormous productivity boost to minimize cycle costs. In particular, the two or…
