CAM MACHINES ARE A THING OF THE PAST
Focusing on the replacement of cam-controlled multi-spindle lathes up to 22 mm bar diameter, the new extended version INDEX MS16 Plus of the MultiLine series is a modular design, 6-spindle CNC multi-spindle lathe. In each work spindle position, the machine can simultaneously accomplish two or more operations, dropping complete parts in very short cycles.
According to INDEX engineers, it replaces the widely used but costly to set up fast cam-controlled multi-spindle lathes that still dominate the market when it comes to machining workpieces of simple to moderate complexity.
The INDEX MS16 Plus combines the speed of a cam-controlled machine with the flexibility of CNC technology, yet is extremely compact (1,300 mm width), requiring no more space than current cam-controlled multi-spindle machines.
The MS16 Plus offers exceptional ease of setup and more versatile machining options compared to cam-controlled machines. To keep up with the speed and efficiency of cam-controlled multi-spindle lathes for small parts up to 22 mm diameter, the INDEX engineers added a number of innovations to the multitasking MS16 Plus.
