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.
