Quality and productivity
The UNICOM6000 is a multi-task machining centre that combines quality and productivity. It is capable of performing milling, drilling and vertical turning operations with ease. This workhorse machine has the distinct advantage of a ram design that allows ‘plunging’ inside the component with short turning tools. It can be equipped with several machining heads, which are stored in designated pick-up stations. For horizontal machining operations, an indexable right angular head is available and to create even further flexibility, a universal head with B- and C-axis can be integrated. The automatic pallet changer reduces loading times and ensures a high uptime to boost productivity. Even with its focus on output, this machine makes no compromise on accuracy.
Every multi-tasking machine aims to deliver productivity – but it must not be at the cost of product quality. The Unicom 6000 is one of a long line of vertical machining centres that have been developed by Unisign over the past 30 years. The proven technology built into the milling spindle, the (universal) angular head and the carousel turning table is your guarantee of reliability for years to come.
Powerful and smart
The carousel turning station has a double drive system with gearbox creating extreme power and torque for turning while also being able to run in C-axis mode. Together with the powerful main spindle, the Unicom 6000 offers extreme capacity in all aspects. The machine’s ram design allows ‘plunging’ into components for inside operations and the use of short tools.
Operating comfort and safety
The Unicom 6000 is equipped with a fully enclosed guarding section and with fume extraction it creates an ergonomically safe and comfortable working environment. The ideal machine layout ensures an excellent view on all machining processes and gives easy access to the machining area and pallet changer. The Unicom 6000 comes standard with 2 pallets but more are optional. The pallets come in various sizes and can be used randomly. The components can be precisely aligned and centred on the pallet loading station, thus eliminating time-consuming measuring inside the machine. Pallets can be changed within 60 seconds.
Next to the pallet changer and a carousel turning station this CNC machine has an extensive tool magazine and several accessories for e.g. spiral grooving and elliptical conical eccentric turning. The Siemens Sinumerik 840-D CNC-control system also facilitates free-of-charge remote access to enable direct service from the manufacturer.

CNC machine applications
- 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.
