Information and analysis of the technology and innovations of IMSA deep drilling and milling machines.

A hole is defined as deep when the length of the hole exceeds at least 10 times the diameter of the tool, up to lengths of 150 times the diameter and more, depending on how the tool is guided through the machine. This is such an extensive range that it includes different systems and tools: helical drills, gun drills, BTA/STS tools.
Our gundrilling and milling machines for molds adopt different technical solutions for switchover drilling/milling and back.
A dynamic reality where each design is a tailored response to customers who need precision and speed in deep drilling. Sales manager for I.M.S.A. srl, Luca Picciolo, tells us about the current situation in our interview with him. - Translation of the interview carried out by the Italian technical magazine “Macchine Utensili”
14/11/19 We are pleased to announce the installation of our 500th deep hole drilling machine.
Every important anniversary is a time to reflect on the milestones reached and goals yet to be achieved. For IMSA’s 30th year in operation, Italian trade magazine COSTRUIRE STAMPI (mold making) interviewed Luca Picciolo, Sales Manager, who retraced the milestones the company’s growth and forecasting future scenarios for deep drilling.
In its first 30 years in business, IMSA has consolidated its position as a key player at national and international level. With a range of high-performance and customized drilling and milling machines for molds and blocks, machines for the centerline drilling of cylindrical workpieces, as well as special machines.
I.M.S.A.'s deep drilling machines, meant especially for manufacturers of moulds and die bases, are characterized by a particularly rigid structure allowing both Gun drilling and milling operations to be carried out effectively.
IMSA's technical team recently made improvements on the spindles of MF1000C, MF1000/2F, MF1250/2FL machines. Thanks to these new spindles the machine performances both in gundrilling and in complementary machining have strongly increased.
Many IMSA machines for molds and blocks have a Vertical Gantry Column structure. This means, the column is supported and guided at both bottom and top.
