The INDEX Group is one of the leading turning machine manufacturers worldwide. The products of INDEX and TRAUB cover the entire range of turning machines, from single spindle to multi spindle to sliding headstock machines. The corporate headquarters is located in Esslingen, Germany, with subsidiaries located around the world. With 2300 employees combined with its network of distributors (including Crotts & Saunders Engineering), INDEX Corporation is able to provide the best in application and service support, stemming from their newly established headquarters in Noblesville, Indiana.
INDEX turn-mill centers set the standard for economic, high-precision solutions tailored to the customer's needs. Standards ranging from the classic production turning machine to tailor-made machining cells equipped with handling units. For the machining of simple to highly complex parts, in small to large lot sizes, INDEX consistently offers economically and technologically superior solutions.
INDEX vertical turning centers meet all requirements of low-cost flexible series production of chuck parts. The vertical mobile motor spindle carries out the "handling" and "machining" functions. Short travel distances, combined with high rapid traverse speeds, substantially reduce the nonproductive times.
INDEX automatic lathes are especially designed for fast, cost-optimized production of typical automatic turned parts and complex NC turned parts. The flexibility of CNC technology, combined with the high speed of classic automatics, allows the production of small to medium lot sizes at competitive prices.
INDEX multi spindle automatics combine the advantages of CNC technology with those of cam-controlled machines. They can be used not only for series production of a wide range of precision parts but also for small series due to their extremely short setup time. Whatever the application, these multi spindle automatics impress with their low costs to the user.
