The Index TNL 12/7 machine model takes CNC Swiss turning to a higher level due to increased speed and productivity, the company says. At the same time, the modular concept allows the machine to be tailored to handle either simple or more complex work for cost-optimized manufacturing. The TNL 12/7 is offered in three versions: a lean L version, a mid-range E version and the K version for the most complex parts. The L Version represents the first step in the building block concept. This version includes the headstock Z axis and a 6 station turret with Y axis. The Y axis allows either two (gang style) tools per station, or three-axis milling in conjunction with power driven tools in the turret. The E Version adds endworking, as well as backworking capability using an opposed pick-up spindle and a backworking tool carrier. To increase productivity, up to three tools can be employed simultaneously. The K Version includes a second turret with a Z axis. This concept allows overlapped machining of additional O.D. tools with other tools, increasing the total number of tools in-cut up to four for maximum productivity. Other options include live tools and a Y axis for the backworking tools. Good accessibility from both sides of the machine enables quick setup and changeover. Although model dimensions vary, each requires minimal floor space, making the TNL 12/7 useful for integrating it into existing floor layouts.
