INDEX Group Awarded for 1,000 Virtual Machines Sold



(l-r) Jürgen Albrecht, Sales Machine Tools Systems, Siemens AG, Dr.-Ing. Dirk Prust, Technical Managing Director / Speaker of the INDEX Executive Board; Eberhard Beck, Head of Control Engineering, INDEX Group; Martin Melzer, Head of Production Plant 3, Bippus GmbH & Co. KG; Jürgen Köhler, Head of Digital Factory Division Germany, Siemens AG

With the delivery of an INDEX MS22-8 multi-spindle automatic lathe to Paul Bippus GmbH & Co KG in Oberndorf am Neckar, Germany, INDEX-Werke sold the 1,000th license of its innovative "Virtual Machine" product. Siemens AG took this number as an opportunity to honor the Esslingen-based lathe manufacturer. Jürgen Köhler, Division Head of Digital Factory Germany, recently visited the INDEX Open House with a delegation to present the Siemens Award in the form of a glass cube with the hologram of a Virtual Machine.

Dirk Prust, Technical Managing Director, and Eberhard Beck, Head of Control Technology, accepted the award on behalf of all employees involved in the INDEX Virtual Machine. Paul Bippus GmbH & Co KG, specializing in turned parts production and purchaser of the 1,000th license, was also present at the award ceremony. Martin Melzer, Head of Production at Bippus, received a glass cube as well.

INDEX's Virtual Machine is a digital 1:1 copy of a real machine. "Tried and tested for years, this proven Industry 4.0 product offers great potential for increasing productivity," said an INDEX spokesperson. With Virtual Machine, the user can virtually plan, test and even optimize in advance new startups and machining processes, away from production, in real time and with 100% transferability to the real machine. Possible problems can be detected at an early stage so that there is enough time to remedy them. As a result, set-up times and downtime in ongoing production are reduced, while safety and cost-effectiveness increase.
