Universal Spindle Milling and Gundrilling Machines Streamline Production for Mold Manufacturers

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis., April 21, 2020 – To help mold makers achieve the highest levels of milling and deep hole drilling productivity, UNISIG introduces two new models to its successful USC-M series – the USC-2M and USC-3M . The new 2M/3M machines handle the rigors of both milling and gundrilling metals of all types, but do so with a single, powerful universal spindle. Both models feature rigid, robust 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, which is why the new 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 .

“We believe mold makers 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” .
Thanks to the single, universal spindle designs of the USC-2M and 3M, 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. Both models have the capability to run oil and watersoluble coolant as well . For further time and cost savings, the USC-2M and 3M feature fully enclosed machining envelopes that are installed above the shop floor, allowing customers to avoid time-consuming, costly below-ground installations .
