MS16 & MS16 Plus
Multi-spindle automatics

  • 16 / 22 mm bar diameter
  • 10,000 rpm max. speed
  • 15 kW max. power
  • 18 Nm max. torque

Dynamic multi-spindle lathe

Shortest possible changeovers, ultra-high dynamics and lowest secondary times are the basis of minimal cost per part.


Machine highlights

Your benefits

  • Grooving slide for maximum cutting performance with minimum machining time
  • Quick tool setup by INDEX W-serration
  • Spindle drum with individual drives of the work spindles
  • Cross-slide for flexible complete machining
  • CNC cutoff slide with extended stroke for rear end machining
  • Highly dynamic synchronous spindle with extremely short acceleration and deceleration times
  • Up to 22 mm bar diameter with version MS16 Plus
  • Already included: the operating system iXpanel i4.0 ready with 18.5” touch screen and INDEX C200 sl based on Siemens S840D sl

The machine design

 

With dynamic and diverse machining capabilities at low unit costs

  • A maximum of 12 tool carriers with 1 or 2 travel axes
  • Fast synchronous spindle for rear end machining
  • Several tools per cross-slide possible
  • Variable use of tool carriers, internal-external, stationary or live
  • C-axis machining possible in every spindle position
  • Polygon turning and other machining options

Extended version MS16 Plus

- Slide 6.0 as a pure cutoff slide

- Slide 6.2 as a pure rear machining slide

- Optional drilling slide instead of grooving slide in all positions possible

- Bar stop in position 6 in parallel to rear end machining unit or workpiece ejector possible (cycle time-saver!)

- Bar diameter: 22 mm


Diverse machining technologies

Polygonal turning

Polygonal turning is possible in longitudinal and grooving processes, even in high-alloy materials

Example: Hexagonal turning i=2:1, referring to the speed ratio of the cutter head to the workpiece

Milling

Milling with live tool, also in conjunction with C-axis mode (Transmit).

Elliptical deburring

Uniform deburring (even chip removal) of cross-drill holes based on interpolation of the C-axis, X-axis, and Z-axis with live tool.
