The core: the spindle drum
Our hallmark: the spindle drum
The compact spindle drum ensures maximum precision in each position through the use of a Hirth coupling.
The core is composed of six fluid-cooled motor spindles integrated in the spindle drum. An infinitely variable speed range, high tractive force, compact design, low maintenance, and the latest synchronous drive technology – these are the criteria that make an INDEX CNC multi-spindle automatic lathe stand out.
During machining, it is always possible to program the optimum speed, which can still be varied even during tool engagement, for each spindle position and each cutting edge of the tool.
The results are optimized chipping, maximum surface quality, short production times per piece, and extended tool life. You can also machine high-strength materials that up to now were hardly suitable for multi-spindle machines. It is possible to make speed changes during drum indexing, thus avoiding any additional secondary times.
