UniMac Introduces UY Softmount Washer-Extractor Series

Ripon, Wis. – Oct. 21, 2014 — UniMac, a leading provider of on-premises laundry (OPL) equipment, has unveiled its UY softmount washer-extractor series, available in 20- to 275-pound capacities. With a freestanding design for easy installation, the new machines help OPLs of all sizes reduce costs and maximize throughput. 

“We are pleased to offer on-premises laundries another innovative product design that is backed by the industry-leading quality and durability UniMac is known for,” said Bill Brooks, national sales manager for UniMac. “UniMac continues to be progressive in adding to its full-line of OPL products that meet the diverse needs of today’s laundry operations.” 

UY washer-extractors feature one of two intuitive control systems, based on capacity. Both include multi-language capabilities and offer 99 programming options and eight liquid chemical connections, giving a manager complete control of the OPL.

• PROform Control—standard on UY20, UY25, UY30, UY40, UY55, and UY70 models.

• Micro Control—standard on UY90, UY125, UY180, UY230, and UY275 models.

Available through the PROform or Micro Control, Laundry Management System (LMS) and networking allows an OPL manager to monitor machine setup and wash program updates. Other features of LMS include location management, maintenance data, and alarms via email—all through a wired or wireless Internet connection.

The machines extract with a 350 to 400 G-Force extraction speed. The result is maximum water removal from the load, which reduces drying times, saves on utilities, and allows a laundry to run at premium efficiency by equalizing washer and dryer times and increasing throughput.

In addition, innovative product design and wash programs help OPLs greatly reduce water costs, delivering 15 percent water savings when compared to older models in the market.

UY series washer-extractors are designed with high-quality, stainless steel front and top and side panels for increased strength and durability. Machines also offer an inverter drive system that delivers low energy use, higher torque, high extraction speed, lower noise, and less imbalance.

An industry-leading five-year warranty covers the frame, basket, shaft, bearings, and seals from failure or breakage during normal operation due to defects in material or workmanship. A three-year warranty is offered on all other parts.

UniMac provides a full line of heavy-duty industrial equipment for the commercial laundry industry.
