UNISIG to Spotlight Specialized Gundrilling Capabilities at PMTS 2015

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis., – At PMTS 2015 in booth 476, UNISIG will showcase a compact machine that allows job shop owners to economically add gundrilling capabilities to their operations. A recently updated product is the UNISIG UNE6, a machine used for drilling deep holes with smaller diameters.

Representing the UNE series of gundrilling machines, the UNE6 is well-suited for medical components such as bone screws and surgical instruments that require the precision drilling of small diameter deep holes into high strength titanium or surgicalgrade stainless steel. A counter rotating workpiece headstock designed for small parts greatly enhances concentricity, and hole diameters with the UNE6 can be drilled as small as .039" (1mm) with diameter-to-depth ratios beyond 100 to 1.

Like all UNISIG machines, the UNE6 is engineered and manufactured in the United States with high-performance components. It features cast iron headstock and chip box components, cartridge spindles with premium quality bearings, and a high precision preloaded ball screw feed.

UNE series gundrilling machines meet job shop owners’ needs for flexibility through a modular design. Machines are available in a variety of configurations with up to four spindles, a single drilling module, dual spindle-spindle modules, and as single or dual module machines.

The compact construction of the UNE6 allows for quick installation. To ensure immediate production upon installation, UNISIG provides customers with training for machine operation, process optimization and gundrill tool sharpening in UNISIG’s training room and lab. The company also provides reference information and practical advice necessary for proper operation.


Headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wis., UNISIG is a world leader in the manufacture of deep-hole drilling systems and technologies for precision-focused metalcutting industries, including aerospace, automotive, energy and medical. A state-of-the-art production facility and reliable network of local suppliers allow the company to design and manufacture its BTA, gundrilling, trepanning and skiving machines as well as its tooling solutions and automation in the United States.
