Our U-500 is recommended for high-volume production facilities that require the primary use of a single sized V-Nail for frame joining. The U-500 has the same user-friendly, touch screen interface as our U-600 Underpinner. The only difference between the two models being the U-500 has single channel capacity compared to a multi-channel with the U-600 unit.
With data storage of 5,000 different frame profiles, the operator can easily recall any frame profile alphabetically, numerically or by using the bar code reading option.
The U-500 is equipped with both a horizontal and vertical clamping mechanism to securely hold the moulding during the V-Nail insertion process.
The U-500 now includes a new operating function with its C.A.P.S (Computerized Air Pressure System) feature. See tab below for complete details.

Alfamacchine’s U-500 Computerized Air Pressure System (C.A.P.S.) is the latest operating feature for frame joining eliminating the need to making manual air pressure adjustments for the Vertical Clamping Mechanism. The software includes the functionality of applying a soft vertical clamping motion reducing moulding damage with soft materials or delicate finishes.
This new system provides the following production features...
Maximizes production efficiently with pre-set clamping pressures
Eliminates moulding material damage by controlled vertical clamping pressure
To utilize this new feature, the operator stores in the air pressure values needed depending on the moulding hardness for each of the frame profiles stored in memory. By setting a pressure setting into the memory database, programs recalled through the key pad or barcode scanning option automatically sets the clamping air pressure needed.
All new equipment purchases for the U-500 and U-600 now include the C.A.P.S feature and a field retrofit kit, P/N 298390450, is available for upgrading current customer machines looking to use this new operating feature.
