Unisig’s (Booth 207) USC-M series drilling and machining centers combine several essential processes into one machine, reducing setup time and increasing accuracy for mold manufacturers. They each feature a 360-degree workpiece table, and angle of the drilling and machining headstock can be programmed 30 degrees downward and 15 degrees upward

The M-series machines are available in two sizes: the USC-M38 is capable of drilling and machining all four sides of a 2-m-long workpiece in a single setup, while the larger USC-M50 can handle processing of all four sides of a 3-m-long workpiece.

The machines use both traditional gundrill tooling as well as the improved-efficiency BTA drilling process to boost productivity in waterline drilling. This capability is combined with a second, independent CAT50 machine quill capable of performing all machining and drilling functions within the full working envelope of the system. 

Both machines are available with a variety of options, including an automatic tool changer with as many as 120 positions, laser tool pre-setting, workpiece probing, automatic pallet transfer, full enclosure guarding with a mist and smoke collection system.

    Correct alignment lock selection will reduce maintenance costs, molding downtime and increase part quality over the mold’s entire life.

  • How to Choose the Right CNC Router

    With moldmaking the focus is on injection molding or other mold types that use wire EDM or CNC machining centers to create the mold components. Your typical machining center weighs several tons and has a relatively small working envelope compared to a CNC router. The mill’s massive construction lends itself to machining rigid materials with very tight tolerances. While this type of CNC is suited for injection molding components, it isn’t always the ideal tool for the job when we broaden our scope of moldmaking and the current opportunities in the marketplace
