Deep Hole Drilling Systems Cover Range of Applications
IMTS 2018: Unisig showcases equipment designed for gundrilling, BTA drilling, bottle boring and skiving/roller burnishing applications.
Unisig will showcase a range of gundrilling, Boring and Trepanning Association (BTA) drilling, bottle boring and skiving/roller burnishing equipment. Machines can be tooled for a variety of applications, including hydraulic cylinders and components for industries including medical, aerospace, die and mold, automotive, energy, and firearms.
In addition, the company will feature a custom machine from its research and development lab. The machine will demonstrate the extreme depth-to-diameter ratios possible with the latest control technologies. The machine possesses CNC motion control capabilities to produce accurate, off-center gundrilled holes.
The company will also introduce its expanded line of deep hole drilling and machining centers designed for moldmakers. These machines complement the company’s existing USC-M series of four- to seven-axis deep hole drilling and machining centers. Four-sided machining capability enables manufacturers to process large and small parts alike in a single setup.
Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
Hand-scraping the mating surfaces of a CNC machine tool’s motion system offers myriad advantages.
