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 product portfolio including production turning machines, turn-mill centers, turn-grind centers, vertical turning machines and CNC multi-spindle turning machines.
INDEX 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 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 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.
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.
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.
At TRAUB we consider it to be our foremost duty to serve our customers. TRAUB has achieved its reputation as one of the leading manufacturers of CNC turning and machining centers not only by having gained a headstart in matters of advanced technology and excellence, but also through the development of a user-oriented product range and an extensive service network. Here is a brief introduction to our competitive range of machine tools with its universal turning centers and short and long turning machines.
The TRAUB TNA line 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.
CNC sliding headstock automatics from 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.
TRAUB turn-mill centers are intended for economic complete machining of complex parts on a single machine. Turning and milling operations, as well as the implementation of other machining processes such as polygon turning, profile and flat milling, the production of special threads or the integration of laser machining. The decisive factor is not the multitude of variants, but the profit you make.
The performance of a modern machine tool depends not only on a well-designed machine but also to a large degree on the CNC control. TRAUB has realized this early on, which is why we have been developing our own control concept TX8i-series, thus setting new standards. For comfortable generation, optimizing and simulation of CNC programs, TRAUB offers WinFlexIPS, that can be run on both the machine and the PC.
