In mold and die, very large, heavy blocks of aluminum and steel need to be milled. With so much bulk, it makes sense to do as much as possible in one operation. The solution is a deep hole drilling machine, which can drill up to 83 inches, as well as tapping, chamfering, spot facing, counterboring, slot cutting and compound thread milling. With the right cutter, this mill can even face off a block or rough out sections.

In mold and die, this machine is used to save time for large automotive molds like fascia or bumpers, as well as molds for packaging, which require smaller cavities in higher quantities. Watch the video below to see Brad Kleinow, service manager at Tarus, discuss the capabilities and advantages of this impressive piece of engineering.
