MFT 750/2T CR – MFT 1500/2T CR



Cnc Deep Hole Drilling Machine to drill on-center holes in cylindrical parts. Two drilling heads on one single drilling carriage.


  • The IMSA deep hole drilling machines MFT 750 /2T CR and MFT 1500 /2T CR are dedicated to cylindrical workpieces that have to be drilled on their rotation axis. Hole diameter range 6 – 24 mm. Drilling depth 750 or 1500mm respectively.
  • “2T”: 2 drilling heads on one single carriage, to drill 2 identical workpieces in each cycle. This machine is specially designed in order to manage high-volume production. A pre-settable connection for the gun drills enable the compensation of slight differences in gun drill tool length.
  • Deep drilling method: gun drill tool. Drilling spindle: 12,0 kW, 4.000 rpm.
  • The workpiece is in counter-rotation in respect to the gun drill, in order to obtain the maximal drill straightness and process speed. Counter-rotation 150 rpm. The 2 independent counter-rotating contrast heads compensate slight differences in workpiece length.
  • Specific IMSA functions to control the deep drilling process:
    – Electronic check of cutting parameters,
    – Double electronic check against gundrill-breaking, by reading the cutting effort.
  • Temperature, pressure and oil cleanliness are fundamental parameters to ensure continuous trouble-free gundrilling operations. The IMSA deep hole drilling machines MFT 750 /2T CR and MFT 1500 /2T CR are equipped with the best solutions that automatically manage these three parameters to the most suitable value:
    – high-pressure pump, continuously managing pressure and flow, 1 for each spindle;
    – for oil clarification: a complete 3-level filtering system;
    – for oil cooling: a heat exchanger (chiller).
  • Chip conveyor as standard equipment.



  • Workpiece automatic loader,
  • Digital pressure measurement.


Drilling diameter range min-max: 6 – 24 mm.
Drilling depth max. (respectively) 750, 1500 mm.
Workpiece counter-rotation 150 rpm.
Workpiece locking: CNC-controlled.
Drilling spindle 12 kW – 4.000 rpm.
Drilling heads: 2 on one carriage.
Oil pressure max. 80 bar.


When deep drilling of cylindrical parts becomes tailor made

I.M.S.A. has recently delivered two models of twin-spindle gun drilling machines for cylindrical parts to be drilled along their axis to two customers in the machining sector (an Italian and a French company): these are the MFT750/2TCR and MFT1500/2TCR models.
