UC 5XX

The new one

flexible - powerful - efficient

The operating concept, which is standardised across all machines (UC 210/ UC 280/UC 5XX/UC 800), offers optimized machine park and employee utilisation.

Maximum flexibility in the machine park due to compatible mold blocks to the UC 210 and UC 280. Furthermore the UNICOR quick-clamping system ensures an easy and fast mold block change (50% reduction compared to UC 315). This leads to an improved machine availability.

Up to 50% energy savings by speed regulated rotary vane vacuum pumps with only 15 KW connected load.

Perfect quality of the profile surface and profile shape, thus easier processing and higher stability of the corrugated pipe, even with recycled materials. Short dies, lower back pressure and thus higher throughput offer more efficiency and greater flexibility, also in the selection of materials.

  • Diameter range 32 – 500 mm i.d.
  • Production of cable protection-, drainage- and sewage pipes without loss in productivity
  • Compatibility of mold blocks without adapters to the corrugators UC 210 and UC 280
  • Different chain length depending on the output requirements
  • Maximum production speed of 24 m/min
  • Minimal changeover time for mold blocks
  • Speed regulated vacuum pumps
  • Only 20 °C cooling water inlet temperature necessary
  • Electronic control of process air
  • Registration and recording of all vacuum parameters
  • Registration, recording and electrical control of all water inlet and outlet pressures as well as temperatures

Zoomable middle channel

Due to the zoom capability of the middle channel, pipe size-specific mold blocks can be used. This leads to very short dies and low back pressure. Furthermore, the middle channel can be opened completely for very easy accessibility.

Operating panel

All functions can be selected intuitively on the 15 inch operating panel. The new and improved display provides a much better overview than ever before.

Applications

Conduit systems buried underground

Due to the innovative short die technology, even the smallest diameters of 40 mm inside dimension can be produced economically. Almost all common single and double wall corrugated pipes can be produced with this machine.

Drainage pipes

Drainage pipes for fields, streets, squares and buildings with high competitive static properties for sustainable infrastructure projects. The UNICOR die heads ensure homogeneous material distribution and produce corrugated pipes with minimal differences in wall thickness.

Sewage pipes

The corrugated sewage pipes produced on UNICOR corrugators resist maximum loads. Due to the minimal manufacturing tolerances the pipe is perfectly formed and hereby meets all requirements of the respective pipe standards with lowest possible weight per meter.
