Index’s TNL20-11 Swiss-type lathe features 11 linear axes, a frontworking attachment with six stations, an autonomous counter spindle and two turrets, each with eight stations with speeds ranging as fasts as 12,000 rpm and 2.0 kW of power. The lathe applies as many as four tools simultaneously, and the lower turret is equipped with a backworking attachment capable of independent machining of the rear of a part. The machine offers identical, twin liquid-cooled spindles with speeds ranging as fast as 10,000 rpm, 5.5 kW of power and 17.2 Nm of torque.

When integrated with the company’s iXcenter robot cell, the lathe is said to become more productive. With vertical pallet storage including 28 slots, it uses an arm to load and unload parts and incorporates secondary process operations or a 3D measurement device. This is said to increase the throughput potential of the machine.

  • Swiss-Type Machines: More Than Just A Lathe

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
