Single Set-up Deep-Hole Drilling Takes Center Stage at AmeriMold 2015


MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. – At Amerimold 2015 in booth 724 at the Donald E. Stephens Center in Rosemont, Illinois, UNISIG will showcase its new USC-M series of 7-axis deep-hole drilling and machining centers. Ideal for mold production, these machines allow manufacturers to process large and small parts with four-sided machining capability in a single set-up.



The USC-M series machines utilize two independent spindles: one for gundrilling and BTA drilling and a second CAT 50 machining spindle. When this additional capability is combined with a rotatory workpiece table and programmable headstock inclination, accurate deep-hole drilling and all standard high-performance machining capabilities are available within the working envelope of the system.



The seven axes of control on the M-Series machines utilize the B, A, X, Y and Z axes for 5-axis machining operations, the W-axis for the combined gundrilling and BTA deephole drilling spindle, and the U-axis for machining. This provides 3 plus 2 machining to make deep-hole drilling and machining of compound angles faster, easier, and improves productivity and throughput by reducing setups and eliminating changeovers to multiple machines. In fact, using a deep-hole drilling headstock capable of conventional gundrilling and BTA high-performance drilling has proven to be five-to-seven-times faster than gundrilling alone.



Like all of its equipment, UNISIG engineers and manufactures the USC-M series in the United States with high-performance components. Currently, the series comprises two machines: the USC-M38, which offers a nominal drilling depth of 59.1", and the USCM50, which extends the nominal drilling depth to 72". Both allow for drilling diameters up to 2".



UNISIG also offers a full complement of options for these machines to further enhance their milling and machining functions, including full-enclosure guarding, a 120-position automatic tool changer, a laser tool pre-setter and probing.



Upon machine installation, UNISIG provides its customers with comprehensive training that involves machine operation and process optimization as well as gundrill tool sharpening. The company also offers customers reference information and practical advice for proper machine operation.
