Even more efficient with eight spindles

The Esslingen multi-spindle specialists supplement the MS22C series by an 8-spindle CNC production automatic lathe MS22C-8. The modular eight-spindle machine built on the multi-spindle modular system can also efficiently machine highly complex workpieces that would have driven the previous multi-spindle machines normally equipped with six spindles to their limits. The INDEX MS22C-8 CNC multi-spindle automatic lathe…

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…

Creep-Feed-, Profile- and HEDG-grinding with the MICRON machine range

They are space-saving, compact designed, combining rigidity and dynamic with high-precision accuracy. The machine type “Macro-S”, for example, has a width of only 1500mm but all the properties to perform efficient profile-grinding operations. MICRON – machines are fitted with high-precision linear guides, ball screws and digital servo-drives on all axes. The modern Siemens 840D CNC…
