Index-Werke GmbH & Co., KG Hahn & Tessky-Multi-spindle automatics-MS16C & MS16C Plus

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

The MS16C combines the flexibility of modern INDEX CNC multi-spindle technology with the familiar productivity of cam-controlled machines. With 5 extremely rigid CNC grooving slides, optionally also drilling slides instead of grooving slides, and further machining slides with X- and Z-axes, almost all geometries and machining tasks can be managed with the ease of an ultra-modern open-front INDEX CNC multi-spindle machine.

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