Index MS32

With the INDEX MS32-6 multi-spindle automatic lathe, which can be configured according to individual needs, INDEX offers a machine concept that meets all requirements and the highest demands. Six main spindles, up to two swiveling synchronized spindles and up to twelve tool carriers, which can be freely configured as cross slides X/Z, grooving slides X or drilling slides Z, allow highly productive production possibilities. The new INDEX quick-clamping system, patented W-serration and ergonomic front-opening work area minimize setup times. Maximum dynamic response and minimum secondary processes and downtime further reduce cost per part.

Index MS32 multi spindle lathe
  • Flexible tool slide platform reduces changeover times.
  • C and Y axes, together with live tools, can also be implemented to enable a range of machining processes, including off-centre drilling, threading, contouring, hobbing and polygonal turning.
  • By presetting tooling for drilling, milling and polygonal turning off of the machine, setup times can be reduced.
  • Hydraulic units alternate between tools enabling the efficient use of separate tools for roughing and finishing in the same position.
  • Highly-dynamic slides with sliding guide (X-axis)
  • Non-wearing Z-axis due to quills with hydrodynamic support
    Front-opening machine for bar machining
  • Chuck part machining with loading and unloading by robots
    Synchronous spindles with C-axis
  • A maximum of 3 tools for rear end machining, up to 2 live tools possible.
  • Already included: the operating system iXpanel i4.0 ready with 18.5” touch screen and INDEXC200-4D based on Siemens S840D sl
