b'To expand operations and grow business, mold shops need flexible, efficient deep-hole drilling and milling machines.Moldmaking MultitaskingMoldmakers that recognize the value of deep-hole drilling but just are beginning to integrate the tech-nology at their shops often prefer universal-spindle machines. This cost-effective and easy-to-use ap-proach employs a single spindle for milling and gundrilling. But unlike typical machining centers, univer-sal-spindle machines like the USC-2M and USC-3M from Unisig have been designed specifically to maxi-mize the performance of modern in-dexable gundrills.Built around a universal CAT 50The USC-3M is designed for ease of use.
