“Apart from keeping down overheads, the Index multi has delivered other advantages. The machine is more rigidly built than our single-spindle lathes, so vibration is minimised, leading to better accuracy and surface finish and much longer tool life.”

– Mark Bevan, Managing Director

MS22 results in a five-fold productivity increase

An MS22 in operation at MJB Precision Engineering can turn-mill in 24 seconds a component that takes a sliding-head lathe 120 seconds to complete.
