Index’s Traub TNL18 sliding-/fixed-headstock automatic lathe is equipped with seven linear axes and an additional B-axis on the upper tool turret that can pivot 100 degrees. The lathe is designed for machining complex parts with complicated contour elements that also require additional operations such as milling, drilling, lateral drilling or threading. These can be machined at any angular position by the new machine.

In addition, the eight-position turret accommodates live tools at each station, with single, double or triple tooling per position to increase flexibility and machining capability. Tool turret indexing is accomplished through an NC rotary axis without a mechanical lock. This permits free angle positioning of the turret with chip-to-chip times of 0.3 sec.
