Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin – The UNE 12-2 gundrilling machine is designed for gundrilling processes with a low overall investment. It features high-performance components and engineering to reliably deliver more exact gundrilled holes at an increased rate than machines retrofitted to perform gundrilling operations.
The UNE 12-2 is rated to gundrill diameters measuring up to 0.50" and depths up to 30". Its vector-driven variable speed spindles rotate at rates that reach 12,000rpm. UNE machines’ modular design allows for express delivery of a variety of machine configurations for the rapid addition of deep hole drilling to a manufacturer’s production line.
Workpieces requiring a wide range of deep hole drilling applications will be on hand at IMTS 2016 Booth #S-9159, showcasing what is possible with a variety of deep hole drilling methods and equipment. These will include a complex mold base that was manufactured with a combination of deep hole drilling and machining processes that significantly reduced the number of setups. An additional display will include a variety of workpieces with on- and off-center deep holes, all held to the challenging tolerances that are required by some of the industry’s most demanding applications.
