Index Designs is a US manufacturer of CNC 4th and 5th axis rotary tables and servo controllers serving industries such as aerospace, automotive, defense, energy, medical and others. When integrated to a typical 3 axis CNC machining center, our rotary tables add a multitude of 4th and/or 5th axis capabilities. Applications range from complex machining of impellers requiring true 5 axis synchronous contouring to simple point to point 4th axis indexing to any angle to allow machining multiple sides of a part. With over a dozen rotary tables to choose from, sizes range from small, 5C collet sized parts up to 15” diameter platters. Depending upon your machine configuration and application needs, we provide fully integrated solutions. Full 4th rotaries are built with motors compatible with your CNC machine control or for indexing only applications, we offer a single axis programmable control box that can be interfaced to a spare M-function for fully automatic operation.  

Index Designs affiliate, Calmotion LLC, an engineering and manufacturing company dedicated to improving the productivity of CNC machine tools will also have their products on display.


  • TR-6
    A 2-axis tilting rotary table with programmable controller that transforms any 3-axis CNC VMC into a 3+2, 5 axis machine that allows machining of up to 5 sides of your parts in one set-up, thus dramatically reducing cycle times and improving part quality....

  • Index Designs introduces theTR-6, a 2-axis tilting rotary table and programmable controller.  This all-inclusive package transforms your 3-axis VMC into an affordable, easy to use, 3+2 5-axis machine. It easily interfaces to any CNC machine control. Its portability allows you to move it from machine to machine. The compact design allows for operation on machines with small work envelopes.

    ​The TR-6 can be programmed to index both the tilting and the 6.25” rotary platter to any possible angle in increments as little as .001 degrees. Both axis are capable of accurate positioning within 5 arc-seconds of repeatability. The pneumatic brakes provide up to 250 ft./lbs. of holding torque to help absorb heavy cuts.

    The 2-axis controller has 4 modes of index control. You can choose to have the CNC feed the controller each AB move using standard print macros or using internal programs with M-functions or manual cycling. Or, it can provide full XYZAB DNC to your CNC giving you the ability to run very large 5-axis programs even if your machine lacks the needed memory. Additionally, the control enables your CNC to access your USB storage key to save and load programs easily.
