Hofmann HD indexing devices have a direct drive.


The torque motor is directly connected to the indexing spindle without a reduction stage. This enables the indexing spindle to achieve high speeds over a longer period of time.


  • Direct drive for use as a 4th axis on a machining centre.

  • High speed and torque allows continuous operation

  • Use of a water-cooled direct drive supports long running periods.

  • Use of various rotary encoders as a direct measuring system compliant with the precision requirement.

  • High machining performance is possible thanks to the indexing spindle's hydraulic clamp.

  • Indexing spindle with indexing circle and centring seat for assembly on jig systems.

  • Housing for vertical or horizontal turning axis.

The ideal solution for every application:

  • Use possible with a horizontal or vertical turning axis.

  • Centre heights of 200, 250 and 350 are available.

  • A spring-loaded safety clamp on the indexing spindle allows high machining forces.

  • The indexing spindle allows jigs to be built-on quickly.
