Streamlining Production for Mold Manufacturers

To help moldmakers achieve high levels of milling and deep hole drilling productivity, UNISIG has introduced two new models to its 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, and do so with a single, powerful universal spindle. Both models feature rigid frames along with their universal spindles for the toughest applications, all of which help moldmakers minimize machining time and maximize throughput," said a company spokesperson.

"Moldmakers require world-class milling capabilities and accuracy, which is why the new USC designs emphasize rigidity and stability," continued the spokesperson. "With CAT 50 spindles up to 40 HP, these machines deliver 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 moldmaking solutions."

Due to the single, universal spindle designs of the USC-2M and 3M, moldmakers can reduce changeover times when switching between gundrilling and milling operations. A 60-position automatic tool changer helps further minimize nonproductive time. Both models have the capability to run oil- and water-soluble coolant. The USC-2M and 3M feature fully enclosed machining envelopes that are installed above the shop floor, allowing customers to avoid costly below-ground installations.
