Complex parts with a single setup INDEX and TRAUB machine tools are focused on precision parts production and include the entire range of CNC turning machines, from single-spindle to multi-spindle to sliding headstock machines and turnmills. In each case, the objective is to allow users to produce complex parts in a single setup. Index and Traub machines find application globally in screw machine, aerospace, medical devices, automotive, and other precision machined parts industries.
An extremely productive, high precision CNC multitasking machine, the 6-spindle Index multispindle machine series has revolutionized precision parts production. The original and now standard of the industry 20 years on, Index sells more than 100 of its CNC multispindle machines a year.
Configured to meet customer requirements the machines eliminate form tools and cams, providing a more accurate solution than conventional machines with quicker change-over part to part. Single-point, off-the-shelf pre-settable tooling contributes to superior surface finish, accuracy, and low tooling cost.
For multi-tasking work, Index offers several machine ranges. Among them, the Index G-series machines offer two Y and two B axes and 5-axis milling. The new C100 with three 14-position tool turrets and identical main and counterspindles is designed for fast, cost-competitive production of medium complexity parts turned parts from bar stock from 30-42mm diameter.
Ideal for small to medium lot sizes, the three-turret machines deliver high performance within a small floor space, and are targeted to handle fixed headstock work often run on Swiss-type machines. And the new four-turret, 80-tool Traub TNX with identical main and counterspindles can put up to four tools on a workpiece at one time.
A flagship of the Traub line of Swiss turning machines, the Traub TNL CNC sliding headstock automatic turning center series has been a very effective solution. With the recent addition of the K version, users gained additional efficiencies for parts that are less than 1.5” long and added precision with a fixed head stock that allows for better stability during milling operations and therefore higher precision.
