Index will demonstrate its MS22C-8, a modular eight-spindle automatic CNC turning machine suitable for fast machining, especially of complex parts. The versatile turning center can be configured to operate as an eight-spindle machine, a double four-spindle machine dropping two complete parts at a time, or a machine with double rear-end machining. Applications include automotive, medical technology and those where small batches are required. The machine is capable of turning, off-center drilling and thread cutting, inclined and cross-drilling, milling, multi-edge turning, hobbing, tooth milling, deep-hole drilling, or slotting. The turning machine can be bar-fed or loaded with chucked parts.

Each of the eight spindles features two cross-slides which can travel on the X or Z axis, and can also be equipped with a Y axis. The speed of each of the eight spindles can be controlled separately, and the fluid-cooled spindle drum minimizes thermal growth in the spindle carrier. The swiveling synchronous spindles are locked into the end positions by three-part Hirth couplings, ensuring stiffness for bar diameters ranging to 24 mm. All standard toolholders and toolholder system interfaces can be used with adapters including Capto, HSK, VDI and Index systems.
