Unicor launches new corrugator with high speeds

The name of the latest generation of Unicor corrugators for manufacturing technical pipes with diameters up to 135 mm is UC36 G2. The concept provides pipe manufacturers long-term profitability in the production of corrugated pipes, says the Germany-based machine maker.

The UC 36 G2 Corrugator lives up to the G2 name. It can achieve production speeds of up to 60 m/minute with ease. The UC 36 with 80 pairs of mould blocks can reach production outputs for PVC corrugated pipes (cable conduit) of up to 250 kg/hour.

Unicor completely redesigned the mould blocks to further optimise the quality of the pipes. Now all four external sides of the mould blocks are uniformly cooled, providing a very uniform heat distribution in the mould blocks. Adjustments have also become a thing of the past thanks to a mechanical allocation solution for the mould blocks. Time-consuming adjustments are therefore completely eliminated.

To guarantee a long lifespan for the corrugators with minimal maintenance, Unicor says it uses products from German suppliers. The servo motor, gears, touch display and other parts carry the “Made in Germany” seal of quality. The basic version of the Unicor UC 36 G2 is equipped with 50 pairs of mould blocks. This can be expanded to 65 or 80 pairs at any time to increase production capacity. The optional vacuum can also enhance the production of corrugated pipes for a wide variety of applications.
