    Intelligent can stock lubrication

    The Apex system for cupping press coil lubrication is an upgrade to Unist's proven Uni-Roller® technology and utilizes an electronically-controlled, positive-displacement pump to provide precise and repeatable volumes of lubricant to the coil. The positive-displacement pump is not impacted by changes in fluid viscosity which allows consistent application of lubricant regardless of ambient temperature. PLC-based controls allow for easy setup, troubleshooting, and monitoring of the Apex system both at the press and remotely using ethernet connectivity.


    critical info
    Critical info at a glance

    The Unist Apex system displays all critical runtime information in one central location. The home screen can be used to monitor the system and troubleshoot issues.

    active monitoring
    Active monitoring

    The Unist Apex system monitors all critical runtime parameters and alerts the user of potential problems and stops the press when critical issues arise.

    alarm history

    The Unist Apex system displays a history of the previous 20 alarms for troubleshooting help and downtime diagnosis.

    manual setup
    Manual setup

    Manual control allows the user to easily perform regular maintenance and troubleshooting procedures on the Apex system.

    roller setup
    Easy roller setup

    Changing the amount of lubricant applied to the coil stock has never been as easy as it is with the Apex system's roller setup screen.

    Totalizer: track fluid use

    The Unist Apex system tracks total lubricant dispensed and can be reset to monitor lubricant consumed during a time interval of your choosing.

    • Consistent application regardless of temperature or viscosity
    • Easy to use interface
    • Totalizer: Track fluid use
    • Detect issues before they interrupt production

    Active monitoring: Keeps you running

    The Apex system features active monitoring to detect potential issues before they surface and an alarm history feature to view previous alarm states. A color touch screen interface displays all critical system parameters and makes adjusting the amount of lubricant on your coil simple. The Unist Apex system also tracks the total lubricant dispensed, making it easy to monitor lubrication costs.
