INDEX’s Traub TNL18 sliding/fixed headstock automatic lathe has seven linear axes and an added B axis on the upper tool turret, making it equal to the most challenging machining tasks. With the additional B axis, which can pivot 100 degrees, highly complex parts and complicated contour elements that also require additional operations such as milling, drilling, lateral drilling or threading may be machined at any angular position by the new machine.

In addition, the eight-position turret accommodates live tools at each station with the potential to have single double or triple tooling per position, providing additional flexibility and machining capability. Tool turret indexing is accomplished through an NC rotary axis without a mechanical lock. This permits free angle positioning of the turret with chip-to-chip times of 0.3 second.
