moving column CNC machining centre
Large work envelope
Multi-sided machining of toughened materials
Handles the big stuff
Particularly suited to heavy machining of work pieces up to 8 metres long, the compact Univers 6000 combines high accuracy with a large work envelope. The unique right angle head allows for multi-sided machining to increase production flexibility. The sizeable working area can also be divided into two work zones for pendulum machining. Uniquely, the vertical main spindle of this travelling column machine can be gearbox driven, bringing increased torque of up to 1.000 Nm. This makes it possible to mill toughened materials and use larger tools.
- Quick installation
- Great flexibility
- Accuracy assured
This CNC Machine, the Univers 6000, is easily installed and can be operational very quickly. The raised guide ways and large work envelope make it the perfect machine for big and especially long work pieces such as beams and traverses, truck axles and trailer side members. Advantages like remote machine monitoring from Unisign’s own service centre ensure high uptime and a good ROI.
On the one hand this is a powerful multi-use machining centre with a large work envelope. On the other hand it can be used as the basic platform for a variety of customer specific solutions. Usability is enhanced thanks to rotary tables as well as clamping tables, which are available in various lengths and capable of handling different loads. The work envelope also enables pendulum machining for added flexibility.
Several design aspects of the Univers 6000 contribute to its amazing accuracy. It starts with precise machine geometry. Another factor is the short distance between the spindle centre line and the Z-axis guide ways, which creates high rigidity. And then there is the water-cooled main drive that ensures thermal stability. In addition, the rigid build means repeatable production of complex work pieces is possible. Operators and work preparers can be confident that parts will be manufactured within the drawing tolerances at all times.
This CNC Machine, Univers 6000, is a very powerful machine. For multi-sided machining the Unisign right angle head is available. Full guarding is standard, so optional filters can be added easily.

CNC machine applications
- General machining
- Oil & gas
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.
applications for general machining
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.
applications for oil & gas -+
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.
