INDEX MS32-6 – the CNC multi-spindle automatic lathe for short setup and cycle times We designed the new CNC-controlled MS32-6 multi-spindle automatic lathe to be freely configurable: It can be fully equipped with twelve cross slides and NC axes in X, Y, and Z axes, or set up exclusively with NC-controlled grooving and drilling slides. We were able to retain the proven features and elements of the current INDEX multispindle machines: The front-opening design with good accessibility and ergonomics, as well as various automation options that also enable the MS32-6 to machine chucked parts....

INDEX quick clamping device. All that is then needed is a quick turn with the wrench and the holder is ready to use. This is true Plug&Play with great effect: Changing the holder is now 50% faster. Also important: Previous tool holders with dovetail mounting can still be used. For greater efficiency: The compact twin turret can be mounted in five spindle positions. A key component is the fluid-cooled spindle drum with its six working spindles arranged in a pitch circle of 250 mm. The main spindle drive permits speeds of up to 8,000 rpm. During machining, an optimum speed is always available...

At Weber it's not only the sausage that is meaty! For the construction of its largely customer-specific plant designs, Weber Maschinenbau requires some 14,000 different turned parts, in batch sizes of between 1 and 10. Its production operation in Neubrandenburg is automated as far as possible and highly productive, while at the same time ensuring a high degree of flexibility. Two networked INDEX G220 turn-mill centers form the core of the solution installed there. A report by Manfred Flohr // magazine “maschine+werkzeug” The ham feed to the slicer alone makes it very clear that this...

High-performance machines for the food industry Weber Maschinenbau in Neubrandenburg produces high-performance cutting machines, known as slicers. These are used by the food industry to slice sausage meat, cheese, or ham, divide them into portions right down to the exact gram required and then package them for sale. With its sale of 300 slicers, the global market leader sold more in the last year than all the competition put together. Weber has an entire series of machine types in its portfolio, and configures such installations according to customer requirements. “We have a very large...
