Gantry – Hanging Mount: This option allows you to mount your indexer at the end of your tool, where it can be easily adjusted to accommodate different size materials.

Gantry – Rail Mounting: This option allows you to turn the longest piece of material, but is not as easy to adjust for different sized blanks. It is usually recommended that you get a tool one size wider than the sheet material size you wish to cut.

Gantry – Table Mounting:An easy option if you don’t need to turn especially large pieces. It is usually recommended that you get a tool one size longer than your desired sheet good cutting area.
