Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin – With five models built from two frame sizes, the UNE Series can drill hole diameters from 1.4mm to 40mm and depths up to 3,000mm. The compact frame construction saves valuable floor space as well. Each machine can fit near a shop’s existing machining center, lathe, or Swiss-style machine for efficient part-processing strategies. Built with quick and easy setup in mind, the machines are also small enough to be relocated when necessary. For added flexibility to grow with future production needs, all UNE models are robot-ready, allowing shops to add a robot whenever it fits into their budgets and production schedules.

The single main spindle servo motor delivers the 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.

Unlike pressure-based coolant systems, the UNE Series features a programmable flow-based coolant delivery system designed to provide the right amount of coolant to the tool’s cutting edge. 

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. The control’s heavy-duty buttons also function when operators are wearing gloves.

UNE machines offer an automated door option, which can benefit companies with or without automation. 

UNE series overview:

  • Three two-spindle models available with maximum hole diameters of 12mm, 20mm, and 32mm. Hole diameters even greater when used in single-spindle mode
  • Two single-spindle models available with maximum hole diameters of 25mm and 40mm
  • Five rated workpiece designation options between 750mm and 3,000mm
  • Solid-carbide, brazed and indexable gundrill tools
  • Automation ready
