Index Corp. has developed a multi-spindle automatic lathe series, this time with eight CNC spindles, two backworking spindles for rear-end machining, deploying as many as 18 CNC slides (X and Z) and additional Y axes, if required.

The MS40-8 handles barstock through a bar loader, the Index MBL40-8, or chuck parts. The 110-mm chuck allows machining of pre-formed, forged or extruded parts of as much as 80 mm. For simple parts, the machine can be used as a double four-spindle machine, reducing cycle times in half.

The heart of the multi-spindle automatic lathe is the compact spindle drum with eight fluid-cooled motorized spindles with synchronized technology (max 7,000 rpm, 24 kW, 57 Nm). They are characterized by infinitely variable speed control, high torque, low size and no maintenance requirements.

With the increased number of main spindles and tool carriers, the MS40C-8 can completely machine even complex parts in one operation. Up to two pivoting synchronized spindles are each able to work on as many as seven rear-end machining tools: four of them can be live. Two rear-end machining tools can work simultaneously on the workpiece.
