forklift mast channel machining

a dedicated choice
for forklift manufacturers

The telescopic mast is perhaps the most important component of a forklift truck, so processing the mast profiles is key. At Unisign we have developed a special CNC machine (UNIMAST) for efficiently milling forklift truck masts. This vertical CNC machining centre offers you the highest levels of productivity, flexibility and safety, and what’s more, it’s easy to program and easy to use.

multi sided machining and automatic transfer of profiles

Forklift mast channels constructed from rolled steel profiles can vary in length from 1 to 8 metres, so they need to be produced by a machining centre that combines high accuracy with a bar feeding transport unit. The Unimast moving column solution from Unisign is just such a solution, and offers great flexibility as well as accuracy.

Benefits to you:
• high uptime, low downtime
• high flexibility; all profiles are processed in pairs on one single machine
• easy to operate
• simple to program
• safe working environment for your operators
• fully tailored to your material flow
