The Index IT600 universal turning machine is designed for small to medium batches of automotive and mechanical parts. The machine is capable of simultaneous machining by two turrets, upper and lower.
An open work area and vertical machine bed enable fast set up for turning parts as long as 600 mm and ranging to 380 mm in diameter. A 65-mm spindle provides 352 Nm of torque and speeds as fast as 4,000 rpm. The symmetrical machine design provides temperature stability for production, and the cast iron machine bed ensures stability and rigidity.
An intelligent Y axis permits surface milling, off-center drilling and off-center deep hold drilling. The Y axis is generated through the combination of the indexing axis of the turret and the C axis of the spindle, enabling almost unlimited positioning of driven tools, according to the company.
