Here is a great blog from July about the Multi-Spindle machines from Index that was our #7 most popular post of 2019. These Index’s are so much more productive than the average lathes.
With the totally configurable INDEX MS22-8, we offer a machine concept that meets all requirements and the most stringent demands. 8 main spindles, up to 2 swiveling synchronous spindles, and up to 16 tool carriers, which can be configured in XYZ, enable high-productivity manufacturing. All aspects of the INDEX MS22-8 were developed for use of state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies. Generously dimensioned and freely accessible, the working area minimizes setup cost especially for changeovers. Unhindered chip flow is ensured even at full tooling
Productive multi-spindle machine with 8 spindles
8 main spindles, up to 2 swiveling synchronous spindles and up to 16 tool carriers.
Highly dynamic slides with sliding guide (X-axis)
Non-wearing Z-axis due to quills with hydrostatic support
Chuck part machining with loading and unloading by robots
Up to 16 tool holders with 1 or 2 axes and optional Y-axis can be used variably
Versatility is the strong point of the MS22-8. Whether complex parts or different processes are involved – anything is possible
