UNISIG has increased the capacity of its U.S. manufacturing operations via its purchase of a new Okuma MCR-A5CII-35x100 machine that is the largest double-column machine of its type in North America. The machine rapidly processes the complex components that go into the company’s large-sized deep-hole drilling systems.

Okuma’s machining center features multiple heads that allow it to process five sides of a large part in a single setup. As a result, UNISIG is able to manufacture high quality components for its systems in less time and at a reduced cost than if it were to use a traditional vertical machine.

Overall, UNISIG continuously looks for new ways to optimize its operations to support the evolving technology demands of its customers in industries that include aerospace, automotive, defense, energy, and moldmaking.

The OKUMA machine has a 118" x 394" table, 61-ton weight capacity and a 6,000-rpm 50-taper spindle for rapid production of large parts. To ensure the safe, efficient handling of the parts, the MCR-A5CII-35x100 incorporates a Konecranes® 50-ton bridge-style crane with a 40-foot span and 17'1" clearance. This variable speed crane is operated by radio control.
