UNISIG’s next generation of UNE series gundrilling machines deliver operational flexibility, improved performance and effortless operation. The series is engineered and designed to simplify gundrilling, well-suited for various industries, including firearms, automotive, medical, energy, defense and aerospace.

With five models built from two frame sizes, the series can drill hole diameters from 1.4 mm to 40 mm and depths up to 3,000 mm. The compact frame construction saves valuable floor space as well. Each machine can fit in close proximity to a shop’s existing machining center, lathe or Swiss-style machine for efficient part-processing strategies. For added flexibility to grow with future production needs, all UNE models are robot-ready. The single main spindle servo motor delivers necessary horsepower for two-spindle machines. When power is applied in single-spindle mode, however, shops can produce holes with larger diameters, increasing their capabilities and adding the potential for new business without adding a new machine. The series features a programmable flow-based coolant delivery system designed to provide the right amount of coolant to the tool’s cutting edge. The end result for the operator means they can confidently predict tool breakage and spend less downtime recovering an interrupted process.

Powered by Siemens, UNE series machines feature intuitive controls that give operators a full process picture at a glance on a rich color interface with touchscreen capabilities.Ergonomically designed and engineered with the building owner and operator in mind, UNE machines offer an automated door option. All UNE bases are FEA optimized and machined on five sides in single setup for the highest overall precision, enabling simplified installation with no foundation work required, and 3-point leveling on machines rated up to 1,000 mm length.

  • 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
