This 5C indexer was designed to save setup time when used with a Bridgeport-type mill and accurate 6” angle lock vise. With the vice indicated in, the indexer can be quickly clamped either vertically or horizontally. Alignment with the vice is assured by the precision ground steel mounting plate. The pneumatic 5C collet is opened and closed with a simple push/pull knob.

After the indexing operation is completed, the indexer is removed from the vice. The indexer is based on its 4" CNC rotary table. While not intended for immersion in water-based coolant, it is suitable for mist spray of oil-based coolant.

All programming is done from a 110 VAC electronic driver control box that is connected by a 48" flexible conduit cable. The pneumatic collet closer requires an air source of 100-125 psi.

Its features include easy to program, stand-alone electronic keypad control; push-button 5C pneumatic collet opener/closer; up to 1 1/16" diameter stock that extends through collet and mounting plate; hardened 4140 steel-mounting plate precision ground for squareness; hardened 5C spindle; and two compatible long-wearing steels make up precision hobbed collet plate and worm gear set; micro-stepping DC motor allows accurate division of a circle into 28,000 increments; the motor is protected in aluminum housing; and more.
