Gundrill and Milling Machines for Molds

IMSA manufactured more than 500 deep drilling machines so far; among these, 410 are operating in the tool and mold making industry, in facilities of gun drilling job shops and moldmakers for plastic injection moulding industry and glass industry in Italy, European Union, Russia, Canada, USA, Mexico and Brazil.

The range of IMSA gun drilling machines for molds (used for die-sets, tools, mold bases, mold inserts and drilled blocks in general)  includes 3, 4 or 6 axis cnc gun drilling solutions which are ideal for small and medium-sized molds. Our range also includes cnc gun drilling and milling machines with 8-9 axes, perfect for medium and large-sized molds, used to create complex cooling channels with compound angle drilling and machining.

The never-ending quest to research/develop new technology solutions for our automatic gun drilling machines has always played a fundamental role for our team.

Many of the recent innovations applied to deep drilling machines for moldmakers were developed by IMSA, such as:

  • the exclusive autofocus system for the optimal movement of steadyrests (1996)
  • the milling spindle placed at the side of the drilling slide (1997)
  • the vertical gantry structure for the column (2000)
  • the combination of rotary table and tilting headstock (2000)
  • the Gundrill Changer system that extremely automates the gundrilling and milling centers (2009)
  • the Swing on Top gundrilling/milling switchover system on MF1000AF (2010) MF1000C (2012), MF1600S (2016)
  • the increased machining capacity on the "EVO" series with powerful liquid-cooled electrospindles (2016, 2017, 2019).
