  • Unyielding Construction for Quality Performance

    Our high-performance machines are manufactured with premium materials and heavy-duty construction. Built to handle the toughest demands of the commercial environment, they’re tested beyond the breaking point to ensure long-lasting quality and performance.

    1. Bearings / Drive Shaft
      Our cylindrical front/spherical rear bearings can handle 200% more force than ball bearings, helping your machine last longer. The upgraded shaft means even less deflection than the previous UW models.
    2. Frame
      Made of plate steel, these are the strongest frames UniMac® has ever built. They’re robotically welded for improved quality, computer-optimized and destructive-tested for maximum strength and made to handle vibration and unbalanced loads effortlessly. UW’s tall frames provide extra cart clearance and elevated drain height and offer proper ergonomics for the end user, reduced pad costs and increased plumbing flexibility.
    3. Inverter Drive
      The proven technology provides smooth, reliable power for optimal wash and extract performance.
    4. Cylinder Ribs
      Perforated cylinder ribs collect wash water and create a cascade of water that falls gently during each revolution.
    5. Motor
      Our oversized motor has 50% more horsepower than cabinet washer-extractors of similar capacity, allowing for around-the-clock use and increasing the life of the motor as well as your productivity.
  • Superior Rinsing With Less Water

    Industry-exclusive OPTispray™ Rinsing Technology features unique spray rinse intelligence that minimizes the water required to rinse a load and reduces cycle time with extremely effective rinsing compared to bath rinses alone.

    1. Water Savings
      30% water reduction when combined with ECO Cycles. UniMac® UWT4V models also utilize an advanced water management system that includes 30 programmable water levels to help you save thousands of gallons of water each year. Plus, our exclusive auto leak detection and slow drain detection features help identify leaks before they cost your operation hundreds of dollars in wasted resources.
    2. Faster Cycle Times
      Quicker cycles result in 13% improved productivity.
    3. Superior Rinsing
      22% less residual wash chemistry in every load compared to the nearest competitor.
    4. Non-Wash Water
      Minimal sump cylinder design saves 45% of non-wash water with every bath. Cycle after cycle, the savings really add up.
    5. Cost Savings
      Greater annual savings on water, sewer and heating costs than previous UW models.
      Model Added Annual Savings
      UW 160 vs. UW 150 $5,393

      Savings assumptions: 10 loads/day x 365 days/year, water rate $5/1000 gal, sewer $5/1000 gal and 93% of incoming water goes to drain, 7% retained in load, gas cost $1/therm, 75°F temperature rise, 85% gas heater efficiency, and 65% of incoming water is heated using an external water heater. (Local utility rates vary widely and ground water temperatures vary by region. Check your local data and adjust accordingly.)

  • Increase Productivity and Reduce Energy Costs

    Our high-performance UW equipment is designed with advanced technology to maximize the productivity of your laundry room while improving efficiency and reducing energy costs.

    1. Leading Innovation
      Advanced UniLinc™ controls and OPTispray™ Rinsing Technology combine with 300 G-Force extraction, which delivers extremely fast dry times, to improve throughput and save utility costs.
    2. Increased Capacity
      5-10 lb larger capacity than older UW models means more can be washed in every load.
    3. Decreased Footprint
      Smaller footprint means these machines take up less space in your laundry room, allowing for simplified installation.
    4. Improved Door
      Rugged hinge and handle paired with a proven roll pin/cam door lock system allows for smooth open-and-close operation.
    5. Enlarged Door Opening
      Larger door openings are designed to get loads in and out faster, which leads to increased throughput.
  • Reduce Labor Costs

    1. UniMac UWT4V models provide several revolutionary features to save on labor costs and improve employee efficiency, including:
    2. Super-High 300 G-Force Extraction
      Extraction speeds up to three times faster than some machines mean shorter drying times, saving significantly on labor costs.
    3. Four Fast-Fill Water Valves
      We've doubled the customary number of valves to speed up filling time, shaving valuable minutes off every cycle.
