The Uni-Roller® S2 HG delivers the same smooth and consistent fluid application the industry has come to expect from Unist, and adds an articulating chassis. The upper rollers opens a full 6” [152 mm] to avoid deformities in the head or tail of coil stock, making loading easier and preventing damage to the lubricator itself.
That's what many of our customers report. By applying the proper amount of fluid, the Uni-Roller® S2 Powered lubricator uses 50 to 90% less lubricant for stock lubrication. Plus it decreases the mess, the parts cleaning, fluid recycling and costs associated with in-die spray systems, rag technology and externally lubricated rollers.
The internally-supplied rollers are essential to precisely applying the ﬂuid. Inside each of the rollers is a dispenser tube with small holes placed along its length. Fluid is injected into the dispenser tubes from the ﬂuid controller and dispensed across the inside of the rollers.
The lubricant is transferred to the stock through durable polyester felt or polyurethane foam roller covers. These cover materials apply the lubricant smoothly and evenly across both the top and bottom of the stock.
The Uni-Roller® S2 HG applies the exact amount of lubricant required. This eliminates the mess and waste associated with in-die spray systems and externally lubricated roller systems. The result is not only a cleaner shop, but also significant savings from decreased ﬂuid waste, improved die life, better part quality and increased machine up-time. Many customers have reported savings resulting in a return on investment of less than six months!
The brushed stainless steel guards protect the rollers and guide material when loading coil stock or feeding blanks. With the guards removed for better access, a roller can be changed in about a minute using a single wrench. The Uni-Roller® S2 HG is built to handle any manufacturing environment without sacrificing ease of maintenance.
Single roller unit shown above. Lubricators with multiple roller sets have guards on both entry and exit sides.

*On units with double air cylinders add 1.40" [35.6 mm] to the pass line and overall height
Polyester felt cover
Extremely durable and compatible with a broad range of fluids
Polyurethane foam cover
Useful when sequence of stock widths used causes uneven wear on cover. consult Unist for fluid compatibility.
Standard fluid dispenser tube
Best choice for most applications with the widest range of fluid compatibility and flow rates.
Low volume fluid dispenser tube
For use in applications requiring coverage of 50 mg/ft2 [538 mg/m2] or less.
Manual open/close control of the roller set.
To tie into control systems to automate opening of roller set.
Single pneumatic air cylinder
Preferred method for maintaining pressure on stock and opening the rollers to load a new coil.
Double pneumatic air cylinder
The double air cylinder is required for stock thickness over 0.25” [6.35 mm].
Proximity sensor Used to provide an input signal to an SPR-2000™ controller based on roller rotation. Select when an intermittent signal from the press is not available.
The Uni-Roller® S2 Powered lubricator uses a photo eye sensor to detect blanks and provides an input to the SPR-2000™ programmable ﬂuid controller.
The SPR-2000™ alerts you to issues before they become expensive problems that interrupt or stop your production lines. With the SPR-2000™ you’ll know immediately if the fluid supply runs low, if fluid pressure varies, or if flow to the applicator is interrupted (Level, pressure, and flow sensors required). The SPR-2000™ features an intuitive, easy-to-use interface as well as an access code to prevent unauthorized tampering or changes in fluid settings.
