Take a Look Inside Deep Hole Drilling

Do I have your attention with this shot? It’s the inside of a gun barrel. What does that have to do with moldmaking? More than you think when it comes to deep hole drilling your waterlines, cross hole drilling, and deep pockets at compound angles, and on one machine instead of three—boring, five-axis machining and deep hole drilling in one accurate yet approachable machine.  


Lessons Learned in Deep Hole Drilling

Of course when it comes to deep hole drilling, the tooling, the fixturing and the automation are all essential, but the part that caught my attention during a recent UNISIG event was the focus on mold-specific industry solutions, especially its USC-M series machines that allow multiple operations to be performed on all workpiece sides with one setup.
