a complete CNC machining centre that combines great flexibility with
2 powerful main spindles, 4.5 minutes per axle!
World leader in front axles since 1996
Front axles in rapid tempo
For OEMs wanting real productivity, the Unitwin 6000 is a state-of-the-art CNC machining centre. It cuts cycle times on axle manufacture dramatically – down to as little as 4½ minutes per axle! Equipped with twin spindles that operate either simultaneously or independently, this unique all-in-one solution can machine various kingpin angles. And because the spindles tilt, the Unitwin 6000 can perform all sorts of operations: milling, drilling, boring & reaming. It’s a complete CNC machining centre, offering an excellent return on investment.
Increased output at reduced cost
Produce front axles faster and at lower cost. It’s really possible with the state-of-the-art Unitwin 6000. The unique twin main spindles of this innovative, turn-key solution can be tilted to machine various kingpin angles. And when operated simultaneously the two spindles cut cycle times dramatically. If you’re looking for quality and productivity turn to Unisign, the market leader in reliable CNC machines that offer excellent return on investment.
Versatility and speed
One CNC machine that can do so much. With two tilting spindles plus A-Axis, the state-of-the-art Unitwin 6000 can perform all sorts of operations: milling (including outer circumference), drilling (including cross holes and spring pad holes), boring & reaming. Yet versatility isn’t the only gain from this turnkey solution. You also get higher productivity and lower manufacturing cost per part: the automatic loading crane provides quick parts changeover, while the two independently operable spindles allow fast tool changes too. And that means near-continuous production.
Intuitive operation, and safe too!
A CNC machine this versatile and flexible can still be a dream to operate. The Unitwin 6000 programming method has been optimised for front axles: a full product program can now be generated by simply entering the required parameters of the beam. And you can rely on 3D zero-point correction for optimum positioning too – so your setups will always be accurate. A large variety of front axles can be clamped and fixture changes for less common beam types are easy to do. This state-of-the-art CNC machining centre is safe for operators, with a fully enclosed working area that offers a really good all-round view of the complete process.
The two tilting spindles plus A-Axis make a range of operations possible, while the ability to park one spindle and use the other increases uptime for maintenance or tool changes.

cnc machine application
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.
