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

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.

Great flexibility

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.

Accuracy assured

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.

CNC machine applications

  • Logistics
  • Energy
  • 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.

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.
