MS16C & MS16C 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 Xpanel i4.0 ready with 18.5” touch screen and INDEX C200 sl based on Siemens S840D sl


MS16 in focus

Configuration as a single synchronized machine

• Synchronized spindle in position 6.1

• Cutoff and rear end machining slide in position 6.2

• Grooving or drilling slide
   1x selectable per spindle position (1 to 5)

• Extension version with separate cutoff slide 6.0 and pure 
   rear end machining slide 6.2

• Cross slide 1x per spindle position (1 to 5 selectable)

Configuration as a double synchronized machine

• Synchronized spindle in position 5.1/ 6.1

• Cutoff and rear end machining slide in position 5.2/ 6.2

• Grooving or drilling slide
  1x selecabe per spindle position (1 to 4 selectable)

• Extension version with separate cutoff slide 5.0 / 6.0 pure 
   rear end machining 5.2/ 6.2

  Cross slide 1x per spindle position (1 bis 4)


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 MS16C 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.
