rindex Multi Jaws

Go beyond “Quick Change

With our award-winning “Smart Change” solution, you can work with multiple diameters without changing jaws. 

Save time, save money

Reduce set-up-, rework and inspection time. Increase machining time by more than 100%. 

Adjust in seconds, all in one place  

The real cost of jaws are when in use, not when purchesed. Loosen the screw, turn top jaw, fasten screw, done. 

”Set and forget”

Universal base jaw for standard lathe chucks. Perfect for machines without sub-spindle (changing tempos) or sub-spindle usage. 

Goodbye deformations

100 % clamping surface compatible with our revolutionary counterweights

100 % clamping Surface

A deep dive into
Rindex Multi Jaws

Rindex Multi Jaws gives you the ultimate edge while keeping things simple.It’s a small investment that will pay off from the very start. 

6 -12 positions per jaw means more work done with just one set of jaws. Install once and you are set for days.

When you need to change top jaws, our quick-change system makes it simple. Swap between soft and hard top jaws, cover the chucks total diameter.

Rindex Multi Jaws are truly revolutionary. All the benefits of quick change, large I.D. and O.D. range, 100% clamping surface, and up to 12 positions in a single body.

Rindex Counterweights allow you to use large and heavy jaws without losing clamping force. You can reduce clamping force by up to three times and still use the optimal spindle speed for your parts.

Rindex will decrease setup costs by 95%. Most likely you will make a profit from your very first set of jaws, as it increases your gross margin by up to 50% when in use.

Operating costs and machine time are much more important than tooling costs. Research by Sandvik Coromant  shows that a 30% saving on cutting tools results in a 1% decrease in total cost, while a 30% increase in machining time increases the gross margin by 15%.For more information follow the link below.

Manufacturing economics

Mounting the base jaws takes a few minutes with perfectly centered jaws every time. How? Thanks to our smart set-up tools. Once installed, you are ready for a wide range of operations. Top jaws can be changed within a minute, for example when switching from hard to soft jaws.

Stop running back and forth replacing jaws between jobs. Case studies show that finding and setting up tooling is a major source of both downtime and frustration. Rindex Jaws will be appreciated by your staff and will improve their productivity.

  • By having multiple identical clamping surfaces on the same set of jaws, you can recover from a breakdown within minutes instead of losing 30-60 minutes.

  • Store sets – for recurrent jobs 

  • Since one set of Rindex Jaws can cover an entire job, you can make parts one by one with a profit.

  • Save valuable stock space by replacing your existing jaw stock with just a few sets of Rindex Jaws.

Increase gross margin by 65%…

By reducing setup costs by 95%…

cutting rework and inspection time.

That is €38 saved per jaw change…

  • Shorter delivery time
  • Partial delivery
  • No clamping marks
  • Do the same work with 3-6 times fewer jaws
  • Less material waste due to the large clamping surface
  • Reduce waste with frequent quality checks, thanks to the ability to produce short series or even part-by-part without any machine downtime

Calculate your profits

An Example

Look at the pie chart to the left 

  • Consider a production rate of 50 pieces an hour.  
  • By cutting rework (21%), inspection (8%) and jaw change time (13%) you can produce an extra 65 pieces an hour. 
  • That isa total of 115 pieces, an increase by 131%.

According to sandviks calculations, that equals a gross margin increase with 65%, or…

A decrease in component cost by 57%.

Decrease component cost by up to 57%,

By… reducing setup costs by 95%,

Cutting rework- and inspection time

Resulting in… 65% increased gross margin.

Saving money on tooling such as cutting tools, jaws, and other consumables is a false economy.

A quality jaw system and cutting tools will reduce your machine and labor costs, which amount to over 50% of the total costs (see pie chart).

Increasing machine operation time and metal removal rate has a huge impact on total costs. Investing in quality tooling achieves this by externalising internal setup time.

Download our analysis

When using an 8 hour shift, machine operating time is equal to about 4 hours. Out of these 4 hours, as much as half could be spent on rework and measurment time.

By reducing Inspection time, rework and jaw change you can increase machine time with more than 100 %.

If Rindex Multi Jaws cuts jaw change – , inspection and rework time to zero, you will get:

• 134% increased machine time
• 65% increased gross margin
• or 11 500 € per year and machine

Minimal set-up & change over time

  • Base jaws are centered in less than a minute.
  • Top jaws can take on 12 different positions.
  • Change diameter in 30 seconds.
  • Change from hard to soft jaws in less than a minute, if needed

Purchase cost vs. user cost over one year of use

  • The purchase cost of regular jaws is a tiny fraction of the total cost when one takes user costs into account.
  • The total cost, that is purchase and user cost, for Rindex Multi Jaws is around 2.5% of the total cost of regular jaws.
