INDEX B400: Universal turning at the highest level

The newly developed CNC universal lathe INDEX B400 impresses with its innovative work area concept and raises universal turning to a new dimension. The stiff and low-vibration machine bed in mineral cast monoblock design ensures best results when machining complex workpieces from batch size 1. With a high spindle torque up to high spindle speeds, even difficult to cut materials can be machined powerfully and reliably. Special feature of the B400 is the completely newly designed and clearly structured work area concept for a variety of applications. The ergonomic design ensures quick setup and easy control of the machine. The proven INDEX iXpanel operating concept and the 18.5“ touch monitor provide the operator at any time with all relevant data for economical production and access to a networked production.

Clearly structured machine design and versatile applications

Decades of accumulated know-how is reflected in numerous design details, such as in a pocket in the panel above the main spindle which ensures collision-free use of long boring bars. Ideal for a wide range of parts

The INDEX B400 represents a logical further development of proven manufacturing solutions within the INDEX Group. Individually equipped, this new flexible universal lathe takes its place both in tooling and prototyping, but also in production.
