What is an Index MS22 CNC Lathe Machine?  

The Index MS22 Machine is a six-spindle full CNC production machine with multiple tooling options for high-volume precision components. The CNC machine is designed for optimised tooling set-up times. The ability to operate the machine using multiple tools and at various speeds enables a diverse range of products to be manufactured and materials to be machined in impressive time. 

Why has Kingfisher chosen to invest in an Index MS22 CNC Lathe Machine? 

The machine is a major investment for Kingfisher as a business. However, with our commitments to quality and manufacturing using the most innovative and efficient processes we believe that investment in innovation is vital to fulfilling our business values and continuous desire to be an industry leader in new and existing markets.  

The new multi-spindle will enable us to streamline our manufacturing processes and increase the efficiency of our component output. Therefore, further reducing lead times and our ability to manufacture larger-scale jobs with our unwavering dedication to match the needs of customers and clients. Whilst we are proud of our position as one of the oldest manufacturers of grease fittings in the world, we are also excited about the new capabilities this machinery will bring to our manufacturing abilities.
