Index MS16

The INDEX MS16-6 / INDES MS16-6 plus combines the flexibility of modern INDEX CNC multi-spindle technology with the familiar productivity of cam-controlled machines. With 5 extremely rigid CNC grooving slides, optionally also drilling slides instead of grooving slides, and further machining slides with X- and Z-axes, almost all geometries and machining tasks can be managed with the ease of an ultra-modern open-front INDEX CNC multi-spindle machine. Shortest possible changeovers, ultra-high dynamics and lowest secondary times are the basis of minimal cost per part.

Index MS16 multi spindle machine
  • the MS16 Plus offers exceptional ease of setup and more versatile machining options
  • On demand cooling by the fluid-cooling system minimising thermal growth of the spindle carrier.
  • The MS16 can engage several rear end machining tools on the NC cutoff slide with the X- and Z-axis in succession more quickly.
  • Grooving slide for maximum cutting performance with minimum machining time
  • Quick tool setup by INDEX W-serration
  • Spindle drum with individual drives of the work spindles
  • Cross-slide for flexible complete machining
  • CNC cutoff slide with extended stroke for rear end machining
  • Highly dynamic synchronous spindle with extremely short acceleration and deceleration times
  • Up to 22 mm bar diameter with version MS16 Plus
  • Already included: the operating system iXpanel i4.0 ready with 18.5” touch screen and INDEX C200 sl based on Siemens S840D sl
