Machine on Multiple Part Sides with Only One Clamping

Obtain the benefits of a horizontal CNC machine on a vertical CNC machine, by using Chick’s Indexer Subsystem package (ISS). Utilize the indexer you have and marry it to one of Chick’s Multi-Loks. The ISS gives you the ability to machine on multiple part sides with only one clamping, therefore decreasing the cycle time and increasing accuracy of your part. 

  • Present multiple parts with adjacent side milling available on a 3 axis machine
  • Adaptable to all models of rotary table
  • Broadens the capabilities of the machine you already have
  • Streamlines your work process with a fast, accurate, and simple workholding solution.


An Indexer Subsystem helped cut costs by 20% at Birmingham-based Armac Martin. Foreman Neil Nally said:

“With the latest indexers, profitability has increased further by avoiding unneccessary set-ups, which has the added bonus of improving the accuracy of our high value fittings and reducing the labour content of hand finishing.”
