any application that fits your needs
We try to be one step further and think of innovative solutions that can help our clients to work with state-of-the-art machines to meet the increased productivity needs of manufacturers, from aerospace to energy to automotive to oil & gas.
Unisign has many years’ experience in machine building, and knows how to help you get the most out of its machines. Need to increase productivity? Aiming to maximise accuracy? Want to cut down on machine stops and collisions? Our After Sales specialists are on hand.
Through years of experience, UNISIGN has evolved into an international operating company with an impressive installed base. Core to our success has been a clear company philosophy: to design all our standard machines in such a way that they can be tailor-made to create the ideal solution for each individual customer.
Unisign supports and sells its high-end machining centres through a worldwide network of dealers. That way our customers have the choice to speak directly to Unisign or via a local representative.
our clients speak
project engineer at Voith
Everything possible in a single setup – that’s what Voith were looking for – so the UNICOM6000 was proposed. “The UNISIGN would be our first machine with a HSK1OO interface,” said Richard Schmidt, project engineer at Voith. In particular, they were looking for stability and rigidity in the machine concept, since accuracy was important on the heavy parts being produced. In the end though the choice was made not just for the combination of turning and milling; it was also the possibility to do lateral drilling, the availability of good service and particularly UNISIGN’s willingness to think with us. And the payback? In practice, Voith found they could shave an entire day off the usual one week production time for some parts!

As a manufacturer of railway bogies in Switzerland, a productivity increase of around 50% was hugely significant for Stadler. And it’s all down to the UNIPORT7000. Supporting the customer’s aims of manufacturing flexibility and productivity, this Unisign portal machine halved the usual milling and drilling time. According to Mayer, “It’s all down to the extremely high dynamics and the very powerful machine capabilities.” Reliability was another aspect where the machine excelled said Meyer, another but a crucial differentiator for this particular machine was the simpler and hence much cheaper foundation for the installation.
Head of Sales and Marketing at Deharde
We are a full service provider in aerospace, machining as well as plant, tool and wind-tunnel model engineering. Whether prototyping or series manufacturing, our machinery and expertise make short processing times possible, even for the most demanding, highest precision machined parts! Unisign Unipro 5000 with a working range of 5.000 x 800 x 500 mm is an important resource to machine also large parts at high accuracy to the satisfaction of our customers.
Production Manager SafanDarley
“No-nonsense and a service that continues, also after the purchase. They understand what we do.” That is how Mark Das, SafanDarley, describes the relationship with UNISIGN. “Furthermore, just like us, it is a Dutch machine tool builder. This meets with our vision. We know what we get.”
For the production of machine parts, Unisign supplied a new milling machine, also suitable for grinding; the UNIVERS 6000, which replaced two existing machines.
The UNIVERS 6000 creates flexibility in the production process, being able to perform multiple tasks, such as milling as well as grinding. “It may not be the cheapest machine but UNISIGN offers robust quality and good service”, concludes Das. “The UNIVERS 6000 is a big hit in our company.”
we serve other industries
- General machining
We have established a world leading position in front axle machining. Truck manufacturers and suppliers use our UNITWIN6000 CNC machine to produce more than 2 million front axles every year.
For the complex rear axle machining we also have a dedicated solution: our UNIAXLE. With this new CNC machine you can machine cast iron as well as steel welded rear axles to the greatest precision, in the shortest possible time, all in a single setup.
For everything from bogies to wheels and weld preparation to wheel carrier machining, Unisign has highly versatile machines like the Univers6000, Uniport6000 and Uniport7000. These moving column and gantry style machining centres are part of the machine tool program that have been designed to deliver extremely high capacity, dynamics, rapid acceleration and offer a generous working area.
applications for logistics
Heavy duty turning, milling and drilling characterises the production of components for energy-producing equipment like (wind) turbines. So you need a CNC machine that can take the load. A mill-turn machining centre like the Unicom6000, Unicom7000 and the Uniport7000-MTC or a multi-functional Uniport6000 and Uniport7000 are the ideal solution for producing these demanding parts.
Pumps and valves for the oil & gas industry can be highly complex parts to produce with seals, gaskets, flanges and requirements like spiral grooves and elliptical conical eccentric turning. The machining centres from Unisign, with their high degree of automation and specially designed software, are a unique solution capable of milling parts that others cannot.
At Unisign we understand that our customers don’t just buy a CNC machine, they buy a process. And price per part is key. So for general applications we offer high torque machines with high material removal rates, including 5-axis and 5-sided machining and a choice of moving table or palletized, depending on the footprint available.
