Unisig's UNE Gundrilling Machines Enable Flexibility for Growth
Unisig’s UNE series of gundrilling machines is designed to provide operational flexibility, improved performance and easy operation for shops in the firearms, automotive, medical, energy, military and aerospace industries.
Unisig’s UNE series of gundrilling machines is designed to provide operational flexibility, improved performance and easy operation for shops in the firearms, automotive, medical, energy, military and aerospace industries. With five models built from two frame sizes, UNE machines can drill hole diameters ranging from 1.4 to 40 mm as deep as 3,000 mm. The machines are designed to be small enough to be relocated when necessary. For added flexibility, all UNE models are robot-ready, the company says.
The single main spindle servomotor delivers the necessary horsepower for the two-spindle machines. When power is applied in single-spindle mode, however, shops can produce larger-diameter holes that would otherwise require another machine.
Unlike pressure-based coolant systems, the UNE series features a programmable flow-based coolant delivery system to provide the right amount of coolant to the tool’s cutting edge.
The Siemens control featuresa color interface touchscreen capability andand buttons that function when operators are wearing gloves.
Ergonomically designed and engineered with the building owner and operator in mind, UNE machines offer an automated door option, which can benefit companies with or without automation. “Adding an automated door eliminates the repetitive task of opening and closing machine doors,” says Anthony Fettig, Unisig CEO. “Not only does this reduce fatigue, but it improves throughput and gives the operator an opportunity to focus on adding value in other areas.”
All UNE machine bases are FEA-optimized, simplifying installation and requiring no foundation work, the company says.
