UNISIG to Highlight Multi-Process Deep-Hole Drilling System at AmeriMold 2016


MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis., - UNISIG will showcase its USC-M series of 7-axis deep-hole drilling and machining centers in booth 309 at Amerimold 2016 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan on June 15-16. These machines improve productivity and throughput by integrating critical mold manufacturing operations into one machine for efficient processing of large and small four-sided parts 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 standard high-performance milling, contouring and compound angle 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 deep-hole drilling spindle, and the U-axis for machining. This provides 3 plus 2 machining capabilities to reduce setups and eliminate 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 USC-M50, 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.
