Production Turn-Mill Centers

With three 14-position tool turrets and identical main and counterspindles, the Index C100 is designed for fast production of medium complexity parts, turned parts from barstock from 30 to 42 mm diameter. For small to medium lot sizes, the three-turret machines are targeted to handle fixed headstock work often run on Swiss-type machines.

With three 14-position tool turrets and identical main and counterspindles, the Index C100 is designed for fast production of medium complexity parts, turned parts from barstock from 30 to 42 mm diameter. For small to medium lot sizes, the three-turret machine handles fixed headstock work often run on Swiss-type machines.

The machine offers users a high production means of machining stock with 42 quick-change tools (fixed and driven), high horsepower and torque, but with rpm typical of Swiss-type machines.

The turn-mill center with 30-mm bar capacity comes with 9,000-rpm spindles and 42-mm bar capacity is available with 7,000-rpm spindles. Both versions can run parts to 200 mm in length. As many as three tools can be at work simultaneously with both Y axes and backworking at the same time. And the counterspindle with a linear-motor driven Z axis can be synchronized with the third turret travel. Counterspindle pickup from the spindle is accomplished in 1.5 seconds.

Simultaneous machining with two Y axes at the main spindle, or a Y axis at the main spindle and one at the counterspindle, each with 70-mm travel, gives users the option to divide machining operations for optimum machining efficiency and flexibility. This freedom also is a key to reduced cycle times.
