Universal Spindle Milling and Gundrilling Machines for Mold Manufacturers

Sept. 28, 2022
USC series machines are designed for rigidity and stability, and CAT 50 spindles up to 40 horsepower, ensure high-torque milling for aggressive metal removal and shorter cycle times.

UNISIG featured its successful USC-M series at IMTS 2022, to show mold-making shops how it’s possible to maximize productivity for milling and deep-hole drilling operations.

The machine, cutting tool, and automation supplier spotlighted its USC-2M and USC-3M machines that perform both milling and gundrilling metals of all types, but with a single, powerful universal spindle. Both models feature rigid frames along with their universal spindles for the toughest applications, all of which helps mold makers minimize machining time and maximize throughput.

Mold makers require world-class milling capabilities and accuracy, so the USC designs emphasize rigidity and stability. With CAT 50 spindles up to 40 horsepower, these machines deliver high-torque milling capabilities for aggressive metal removal and shorter cycle times.

According to UNISIG CEO Anthony Fettig, these universal spindle machine options offer manufacturers of all sizes a complete line of mold-making solutions. The machines exemplify a continuation of the company’s commitment to meeting customer needs without compromising on quality or accuracy.

Thanks to the single, universal spindle designs, mold makers will significantly reduce changeover times when switching between gundrilling and milling operations.

Additionally, a 60-position automatic tool changer helps further minimize nonproductive time. USC-M machines have the capability to run oil and water-soluble coolant as well, and for further time and cost savings, they feature fully enclosed machining envelopes that are installed above the shop floor, allowing customers to avoid time-consuming, costly below-ground installations.
