Digitization is advancing in all areas. At the Open House, INDEX is bringing the latest developments in its cloud-based iXworld platform to life. It comprises the iXplore, iXshop, iXservices, and iX4.0 modules, which can be used to access digital support for the entire process chain – from obtaining information during the purchase of a machine, on the operation and status of the machine, and all the way to service and spare parts procurement.
Advancing digitization and automation can also be experienced in the more than 20 machines on display, which represent the state of the art and open up new perspectives for the future. The INDEX C200 shows just how far the automation offering has progressed. The automatic production lathe – in a new, user-friendly design – will be shown with the iXcenter robot cell including vertical pallet storage, which,.like other automation equipment, can optionally be integrated in various INDEX and TRAUB production machines.
Universal turning at the highest level
One of the highlights at the Open House 2019 is the INDEX B400 universal lathe, which is designed for precise and powerful machining of customized flange and shaft parts. It is now also available with a counter spindle – for even more flexibility and high-precision machining.
The TRAUB TNA400 universal lathe, which is largely identical in design to the INDEX B400, will be presented to all users and potential customers of TRAUB machines fitted with Mitsubishi controls. It, too, ensures powerful cutting and comprehensive machining options.
