Company Profile

The INDEX Group is one of the leading precision CNC turning machine manufacturers worldwide.

INDEX TRAUB:  World Leaders in Precision Turning Technology

The INDEX MultiLine combines the benefits of traditional high production multispindle automatics with the benefits of modern CNC technology.

INDEX TRAUB:  World Leaders in Precision Turning Technology

The new 65mm R200 Turning/ Milling Center produces precision workpieces nearly twice as fast as any conventional turn-mill.

INDEX TRAUB:  World Leaders in Precision Turning Technology

Quick and precise with a huge tool capacity: The surprisingly affordable TRAUB TNL18 is a sliding headstock automatic and a CNC single-spindle bar automatic in one.Changing over in only minutes, the TNL18 can put 3 tools in the cut at once, features a quick-positioning top tool turret with a larger tool capacity than any gang carrier--up to 24 tools--and chip-to-chip time of 0.3 sec.

Preparing Precision Turning for Industry 4.0
Ready or not, Industry 4.0 is moving forward, and it’s critical for manufacturers to be ready for it. Many machine tool builders and accessory builders are equipping their products with Industry 4.0 compatibility in anticipation of its implementation by customer shops.

Index MS40-8

MS40-8 Multi-Spindle Automatic Lathe with Eight Spindles
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.

TNL18 Series Swiss-Type Automatic Lathes Perform Dynamically with Improved Accelerations
In extensive tests, the developers made sure that the mechanical conditions of the machine harmonize with the new dynamics.

Redesigned Turn-Mill Fits More Performance in Same Footprint
Index will demonstrate its G200 turn-mill, a compact machine offering as much as 30 percent greater productivity than its predecessor in the same footprint.

Index G200 Turn-Mill Center with 30-Percent Higher Productivity
The machine offers flexibility and high-speed machining of both barstock and chuck parts complete in one setup.

Automatic Lathe for Turning Simple to Moderately Complex Parts
Especially useful for runs from 5,000 to 50,000 parts in the 42-mm to 60-mm range, the machine’s combination of features is designed to support a low production cost per piece, even for complex parts.

Index Traub TNL32-11

Turning Center’s Dual Drive Train Speeds Tool Transitions
The Traub TNL32-11 sliding/fixed headstock automatic lathe has a headstock movable in the Z axis, an upper and identical lower turret with X, Y and Z axes, and a counter spindle movable in the X and Z directions.

Traub TNL31-11 Automatic Lathe

Automatic Lathe Features Front-Working Attachment
The Traub TNL31-11 automatic lathe available from Index features a front-working attachment on an additional cross-slide moving in the X and Z axes, providing freely positionable tools.

Add B Axis to the ‘A’ List
Since the B axis is capable of moving in an arbitrary five-axis plane rather than being restricted to the traditional live tool motions where a milling cutter can be positioned axially or radially to either the diameter or the face of the part, complex part machining can greatly benefit from a B axis.

Multitasking is More Than Doing Two Things at Once
Combining different metalcutting operations on a single machine platform is helping shops explore better ways to manufacture.

Traub TNL32-11 11-Axis Automatic Lathe with Three Tools in the Cut
The 11-axis machine saves machining time, especially for components with a high proportion of drilling.
