IMTS 2016: Mollart Showcases Knee-Type Multi-Spindle Gundrilling Machine

June 7, 2016
Such was the level of success achieved by Mollart Engineering and Mollart America's presence at IMTS 2014 in Chicago, that show enquiries led to orders exceeding $10 million for special purpose gundrilling machines for producing oil galleries in transmission shafts for 9- and 10- speed automatic gearboxes for the North American market. The machine on stand S-9290 at IMTS 2016 will be the latest development of this machining concept incorporating a full Fanuc 35i control and drives package. The contract involves a mixture of four and six spindle gundrilling machines built at Mollart's Chessington, UK headquarters with parts manufactured in its subcontract facility. Meanwhile, the bespoke coolant and filtration systems are fabricated and assembled at the Resolven subcontract production facility in South Wales, UK.
