Index Receives MM Innovations Award At AMB 2018 in September in Stuttgart, Germany, Index Corp. received the MM Award for the innovations found in its new MS22-L multi-spindle lathe. Presented by the German industrial magazine, MM Machine Market, this award recognizes innovations in the areas of metal machin- ing and supporting technologies. Five companies were recognized across four categories for their innovative contribu- tions to the industry. In the machine tools category, the award was given to Index for its new MS22-L multi-spindle automatic lathe with Swiss-type functionality. This ma- chine is the world's first multi-spindle automatic lathe to enable simultane- ous machining of long turned parts on six spindles, offering two tool carriers per spindle station, according to Index.
