USC-M Series Milling and Drilling Centers

For industry-leading mold manufacturers who are looking to re-define moldmaking from design to production, the USC-M series brings unmatched capabilities in a single, game-changing machine. Combining deep hole drilling and machining processes on a powerful, 7-axis machine allows manufacturers to change the way they produce molds from the ground up.

USC-M deep hole drilling and machining centers radically change the mold making process by combining gundrilling, BTA drilling, and up to 120 tools in a single, guarded machine, with a heavy-duty rotating table and tilting A-axis, for increased accuracy in production, and significantly increased mold throughput.

USC-M Options for Improved Accuracy

Glass Scales

Heidenhain glass scales provide direct feedback to improve axis positioning accuracy and repeatability.

Inspection Probe

Renishaw wireless probes allow workpiece verification, job setup, and inspection on the machine.

Laser Presetter

Automatic radial and axial tool setup improves accuracy and reduces tool breakage.

Kinematics OPT

Combined with an inspection probe, the Heidenhain Kinematics OPT allows the machine to measure the rotary axis position and minimize spatial error.

USC-M Options for Improved Productivity

Tool Changer

Automatic tool changers are available with up to 120 tools.

Pallet Changer

Dual pallet loaders are available to allow automatic workpiece exchange, to improve machine utilization and unattended machining.

FCS Fixturing

Modular fixturing substantially reduces setup and allows for process planning, which would otherwise be impossible with conventional workholding solutions.

USC-M Additional Machine Accessories

Refrigerant Chiller

Maintaining cutting fluid temperature improves drilling performance and accuracy, and reduces mist.

Mist and Smoke Collector

Fumes from high performance milling and drilling are eliminated.

Remote Handwheel

Simplify control of the machine during setup and verification.

Remote Tool Management

Allow for tool management at the rear of the machine, during operation.
