Since the start of modern mechanical engineering, numerous patents, new developments and innovative details can be attributed to the inventive spirit of INDEX. Perhaps that is the reason why we are always looking to push our limits and be better. Our ultimate goal is to build the best turning machines through top performance. Check out the current INDEX & TRAUB product portfolio including production turning machines, turn-mill centers, turn-grind centers, vertical turning machines and CNC multi-spindle turning machines.
Find the right machine for your use with our machine selector. The selector helps you to localize suitable machines for your usage.
INDEX & TRAUB automatic turning machines are especially designed for fast, cost-effective production of standard automated turned parts and complex CNC turned parts. The flexibility of CNC technology, combined with the high speed of classic automation, allows the production of small to medium lot sizes at competitive prices.

The INDEX & TRAUB universal turning machine has an excellent reputation around the world when it comes to the machining of large chuck, shaft, and bar workpieces. Through precision, efficiency, short cycle times, and ease of use, these universal turning machines have set a standard in their class. The machines can be tailored to suit any specific requirements – prototype production, small and medium series production, or for use in a production line.
INDEX multi spindle automatic lathes combine the advantages of CNC technology with those of cam-controlled machines. They can be used not only for series production of a wide range of precision parts but also for small series due to their extremely short setup times. Whatever the application, these multi spindle turning machines impress with their high performance.
INDEX & TRAUB turn-mill centers set the standard for economic, high-precision solutions tailored to the customer's needs. Standards ranging from the classic production turning machine to tailor-made machining cells equipped with handling units. For the machining of simple to highly complex parts, in small to large lot sizes, INDEX consistently offers economically and technologically superior solutions.
CNC sliding headstock automatics from INDEX & TRAUB are designed for exact and productive manufacturing of long and slim parts with a maximum diameter of 32 mm. The multitude of variants, miniturization and precision of the work pieces are but a few of the demands on a CNC swiss turning center. The TNL-series is characterized through high performance in combination with easy setup and programming.
INDEX vertical turning centers meet all requirements of a low-cost flexible series production of chuck parts. The vertical mobile motor spindle carries out the “handling” and “machining” functions. Short travel distances, combined with high rapid traverse speeds, substantially reduce time. Even high-precise grinding operations are possible on these vertical turning machines.
The turn-grind centers combine the advantages of the turning and grinding process, such as shorter cycle times, high quality and maximum process safety. In addition, the machines benefit from the rigidity of the machine concept, which is traditionally designed for the high process forces during turning and milling and ensures tolerances down to the nearest µ.
Machines previously demonstrated at trade shows or in our showroom provide all of the benefits of the world’s best turning centers, but at a reduced investment level. Each of these machines has been fully certified and has a low level of operating hours in a non-production environment.
Our used machines are modernized by our qualified employees and their decades of experience in mechanical engineering. Components are usually completely dismantled, cleaned, and repainted as required. The interior gets a “makeover” treatment. Wear parts, guide elements, fluid lines, sensors and cables in the machine area are replaced, working and milling spindles are overhauled in proven manufacturer quality, and the control system is upgraded to the state of the art.
Always well loaded. The bar loading magazines are ideally adjusted to the INDEX & TRAUB CNC turning machines for single-spindle and multi-spindle turning operations. They convince with short set-up times , fast bar change and a backlash-free guidance of the bar for high surface qualities.
Excellent software solutions for INDEX & TRAUB machine tools. Discover the new operating system iXpanel i4.0 ready for a direct communication with your business organization and the machine control. Take advantage of our outstanding programming and 3D-simulation software VirtualLine.
The operating system for direct communication with your business organization.
Focus on control and production – Industry 4.0 included.
Virtual Machine is a software solution that supports almost all of the functionality of your INDEX machine tool and adds even further components. You simulate the exact machining, regardless of whether you carry out programming on the machine or with a CAM system. It is based on the original data of the Siemens software, the INDEX control and the machine geometry.
VirtualPro is an innovative programming aid for INDEX turning machines. A large number of powerful input masks, parameterizable sequences and geometric functions simplify programming considerably. You create the desired workpiece program more quickly and conveniently and, thus, in a more reliable manner.
Standard functions and interfaces available in the control enable easy integration of the machine in the respective production environment. You have quick access to production information and custom applications that are displayed directly on the control screen.
WinFlexIPS Plus is the enhanced version of the proven system WinFlexIPS, tailored to the ideal use of the TRAUB machines with the functionalities programming and simulation on the basis of the TRAUB TX8i CNC core – supplemented by the additional advantage of manual operation of the entire machine functionality.
The new cycle integrated chipping software INDEX ChipMaster sets new standards for your production. It optimizes the chipping with variable feed.
