Industry 4.0 Ready New Generation Automatic Lathe



"The dynamic new generation of the ABC machine is ideal for turning out simple to moderately complex parts in cycle times up to 15% faster than the previous generation with rapid spindle acceleration (8 g), shorter spindle ramp-up times, higher rapid traverse rates and quick chip to chip times," said an INDEX Corporation spokesperson.

Designed for runs from 5,000 to 50,000 parts in the 42-60 mm range, the machine's combination of features supports a low production cost per piece, even for complex parts. Up to 19 tools are available for flexible machining with live tools for both turrets.

Short cycle times are achievable due to simultaneous machining with up to three tools. The ABC is equipped with up to five driven back-working tools and offers driven tools in all turret positions. The machine is available in 2-, 3- or 4-axis versions. The motorized 27 kW, 6,000 RPM spindle can generate up to 95 Nm of torque.

Within the easy-access work area, mounted above the main spindle, is the upper turret used mainly for I.D. work. The lower turret is typically for O.D. work. A synchronized spindle operates in the upper turret. Both turrets feature a rapid traverse of 36 m/min.

The ABC can handle heavy-duty polygon turning and thread milling with a counterspindle or drive attachment. The ABC can also be supplied with a quiet-running Index bar loader, which can save 4-30 seconds per cycle, and automatic part unloader automation.

The Siemens S840D sl control is designed to provide economic and productive solutions. The operating system with the INDEX C200-4D CNC is equipped with the INDEX Xpanel i4.0 and 18.5" touchscreen.

"Xpanel creates the conditions for the use of INDUSTRY 4.0: the INDEX operating system focuses on the optimal control of the machine for the effective machining of workpieces with maximum productivity," said the spokesperson. "It provides a direct connection between the machine control and the operations department within the user company. The operator receives exactly the information that best supports him in his current work."

Xpanel offers user assistance through complete integration into existing network structures. Drawings, set-up sheets, user manuals, circuit and hydraulic diagrams and more are available directly on the machine without additional hardware.
