UNE 12-2 Gundrilling System Features Cast Iron Headstock

Originally titled 'Gundrilling System Features Cast Iron Headstock'

Because of its compact design, the gundrilling system is easy to install in a shop’s existing CNC machining cells.

Where a shop may perform deep-hole drilling on Swiss automatic machine tools, a dedicated deep-hole drilling solution, such as the UNE 12-2, significantly reduces lead times and provides a higher degree of accuracy and precision. Because of its compact design, the gundrilling system is easy to install in a shop’s existing CNC machining cells.

The system’s advanced process monitoring and control system displays real-time machining data. The system tracks measurements such as advanced thrust power and coolant pressure and reports them back to the operator, which allows for optimization of the machine’s operating conditions. The fully programmable coolant system creates ideal temperatures on the cutting surface to eliminate thermal damage to workpieces.

As with all UNE series systems, the UNE 12-2 is a high-performance drilling machine that increases a shop’s productivity and lowers production costs by allowing it to bring more jobs in-house. Deep-hole drilling technologies feature cast iron headstock and chip box components, cartridge spindles with premium quality bearings, and a high precision preloaded ballscrew feed. Its counter rotating workpiece headstock enhances concentricity, therefore dramatically increasing accuracy of finished parts.
