Universal-Spindle Milling, Gundrilling for Mold Production

April 23, 2020
Two new machines handle all types of metal using a single spindle and rigid construction, to minimize machining time and maximize throughput.

To help moldmakers achieve the highest levels of milling and deep-hole drilling productivity, UNISIG introduced two models to its USC-M series, the USC-2M and USC-3M. Both these machines handle both milling and gundrilling metals of all types, with a single, powerful universal spindle. Both models feature rigid, sturdy frames along with their universal spindles, helping to minimize machining time and maximize throughput.

Moldmakers require world-class milling capabilities and accuracy, and the new USC designs emphasize rigidity and stability. With CAT 50 spindles up to 40 hp, the machines provide high-torque milling capabilities for aggressive metal removal and shorter cycle times.

“We believe moldmakers will truly benefit from the machining capabilities of these two new models,” said Anthony Fettig, CEO of UNISIG. “By introducing a pair of universal spindle options, we now offer manufacturers of all sizes a complete line of mold making solutions.

"The new machines exemplify a continuation of our commitment to meeting customer needs without compromising on quality or accuracy,” he added.

Thanks to the single, universal spindle designs of the USC-2M and 3M, moldmakers will significantly reduce changeover times when switching between gundrilling and milling operations.

A 60-position automatic tool-changer also helps to minimize nonproductive time.

Both models have the capability to run oil and water-soluble coolant.

For more time and cost savings, the USC-2M and 3M feature fully enclosed machining envelopes that are installed above the shop floor, allowing shops to avoid time-consuming, and expensive, below-ground installations.
