UNISIG welcomed the Menomonee Falls Super Servos robotics team to our facility last week. Our own Ray M, Advanced Automation Manager, led the tour and showed the team examples of robots in use in manufacturing. We are proud to sponsor this team and encourage students who are interested in robotics. #iloverobots#manufacturing#robotics#students... See MoreSee Less
You know a machine or production cell in Assembly will be up and running soon when one of these guys is stationed nearby with their laptops. The extent of automation and control systems used in UNISIG machines requires the valuable skills of controls engineers and controls technicians like Mike and Alex – members of our electrical engineering group. Their expertise is a vital part of our manufacturing process - read more about it here: unisig.com/core/electrical-engineering #Engineering#automation#deepholedrilling... See MoreSee Less

Just for fun - 40 machines in 40 seconds. UNISIG manufactures deep hole drilling machines -- but there are so many models, features, and applications that it's difficult to capture them all. Browse through them here: unisig.com/all-machines/
UNISIG welcomed a fantastic group of students from #wctc DEA (Dual Enrollment Academy) today for a tour and fabrication shop demonstrations. We enjoy giving future #manufacturing professionals an inside view of what a technology-driven manufacturing facility looks like.
UNISIG machine builders are highly skilled individuals with mechanical expertise plus electrical, hydraulic and engineering aptitudes. Every step in assembling one of our machines requires its own set of measurements and alignments -- and finesse. Our training programs help new employees and seasoned associates grow their skill sets and careers. Learn more here: unisig.com/core/training #madskills#mechanic#precision... See MoreSee Less
Some strategies are developed in conference rooms, but a lot of very important manufacturing work gets done with real-time problem solving, wherever it is needed. A laptop and a coolant tote for a conference table are all you need to get an answer from inventory control and keep your project moving forward. UNISIG’s Core Values are easy to spot when you watch how our team works. unisig.com/unisig-core-values #problemsolving#howthingsgetdone#best_team_anywhere... See MoreSee Less
Running a 5-axis CNC machine is fun, and some parts are especially fun to make. With a rock-solid program from UNISIG’s simulation and programming group, our skilled CNC machinist Jake was able to make this drive housing part from aluminum quickly and efficiently on his 5-axis machine. #Teamwork#technologyinfusion#CNCprogramming...

Our machine shop makes a lot of components, and some of those components really have a lot going on. This intricate part was machined in one setup in our mill/turn machine, then ground to perfection by Dave. Our skilled CNC machinists are another reason there is no machine shop like the one at UNISIG. #cncmachinists#unisigmachines#precision... See MoreSee Less
There is always a lot of activity in the UNISIG assembly bay, with multiple machines being built at any given time. Professional machine builder Shane documented this machine base being safely lifted into position in the bay, and shared the photo with the Marketing team. #heavylifting#companypride...

Some things are easier to explain with pictures! UNISIG's UNX-CP machines drill deep, off-center holes with exceptional accuracy through the use of very specialized technology. What this means for our customers is very accurate, very straight holes, even at depth to diameter ratios of 375:1. Watch the video for an in-depth explanation.
There are literally thousands of components and connections involved in every machine built at UNISIG, which is why our skilled machine builders are so valuable to us. This UNE6-2i machine has two spindles that operate independently, giving Mason twice as many details to keep track of as he assembles the machine. We have enormous respect for the work these team members do every day. #madskills#gearheads... See MoreSee Less
Big machines need big mist collectors. The new fab shop at UNISIG is turning out some super-sized components for customers’ machines. Not everything they make is this large, but all components are fabricated with high quality and accuracy standards. Want to see what we do in our fabrication shop?

Hard to say goodbye…. This robot looked like it was saying goodbye through the door of a 3-machine automated cell in our assembly bay. A few days later it was on its way to its new home, where the cell will be installed. #weloverobots#automation#jobswithrobots
This UNISIG B500-3M machine drills 4” diameter holes up to 10 feet deep, with exceptional accuracy and concentricity due to counter-rotation of the workpiece. Every day UNISIG employees are engineering and building incredible machines designed to drill holes that machining centers cannot.
Our team in the newly constructed Fab Shop clearly has a lot of pride in their work - and in their department. This piece was created and laser-cut in the Fab Shop and is displayed just outside the welding center.
UNISIG proudly displays a Garrison flag in our main assembly bay. The prominent 20’ x 38’ flag was installed by the assembly team, and Nate – assembly supervisor – soon noticed a problem. When all the lights were turned off in the shop, the emergency lights that remain lit were not centered on the flag. Nate didn’t hesitate to take initiative and get the wiring in the shop changed so that the flag would always remain well lighted.
Building machines under this flag reminds us of what we must live up to, with everything our country has given us. Happy Independence Day to all! ... See MoreSee Less
At UNISIG, our engineers don’t work on an island. Every aspect of our operations is connected through technology and supported by collaboration between people in all departments.

If you are at the Orthopaedic Manufacturing & Technology Exposition and Conference in Chicago make sure to stop by booth 443 to discuss how our UNE6 series machines revolutionize medical part production with unmatched accuracy, automation, and productivity.
We're always looking for ways to evolve the way our products meet customer needs. For example, check out this medical application, where the addition of a part stage allowed an increase in spindle utilization!
