Eastec 2019: Unisig’s UNE6-2i independent spindle gundrilling machine is designed for accuracy and productivity in medical applications.

Unisig’s UNE6-2i independent spindle gundrilling machine is designed for accuracy and productivity in medical applications. The UNE series machines are said to include technology for accurate and efficient drilling along with controls for intuitive setup and operation. The machines perform high-precision gundrilling to tolerances as tight as 20 mm in diameter and handle prototyping, job shop and medium-volume production environments. According to the company, manufacturers have the advantage of intuitive operation and controls, short lead times and simple installation, and can increase machine potential with a robot option.

The company also offers automation that is flexible, machine mounted or custom designed. Typical automation applications in the company’s industries include part handling and loading, automatic tool management and robotic cell integration. Automation is integrated into machine designs and is said to offer intuitive operation while providing improvements in productivity for manufacturers.

  • Drill And Bore With A Face Mill

    Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.

  • Threading On A Lathe

    The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.
