The only machine in the world capable of producing two different types of fence knots.

The patented UMC Fence Lokk Machine can produce Fixed Lokk or Stay Lokk type fence knots on one Machine with minimal downtime when changing between fence types.

The FLM machine produces fabricated wire fence in various roll sizes and knot types used for numerous applications, producing fencing for livestock and conservation right through to security, and exclusion applications.

There are two machine sizes available; The 6’ foot (1829mm) wide machine can be mechanically or electrically controlled and the 10′ foot (3048mm) wide machine is fully electrically controlled.

PATENTED FIXED LOKK & STAY LOKK TECHNOLOGY

The FLM machine can be delivered with one set of tooling, for customers who only require one type of fence, or a second set of tooling can be purchased that will allow the machine to produce both types of fence knot.

Automatic Cut & Roll Removal

The UMC FLM Machine has the option to automatically cut and remove the roll at the desired length, then start fence production again without operator involvement.

This is achieved by the roll clamp closing on the roll while the cutting mechanism cuts and holds the cut end of the fence on the machine side. The roll then traverses across to the tie off area. The holding mechanism then reloads the fence onto the windup mandrel and production is started again.

Safety & Controls

The UMC FLM Machine has a high level of machine safety. There is integrated PLC Machine safety with light curtains, laser scanner and magnetic RFDI guard sensing.

There are front and rear HMI interfaces, with hand wheel adjustments for slow speed operation and individual axis control over the knot tying motion.

Flexible Roll Size

The flexibility of the UMC FLM Machine allows for very large rolls to be produced. Maximum roll diameter 1,300mm (51.2”) Minimum roll diameter 300mm (11.8”) Maximum roll weight 1,500kg (3,300lbs)

The manufacturer can produce a roll of fence with 152mm (6”) stay wire space, up to 500m (1,640’ft) in length. In addition, a special kit can be provided for manufacturers who are wanting to make very short length rolls.

Two Machines In One

The FLM Machine produces Fabricated Wire Fence in various roll sizes and knot types used for numerous applications from Livestock to Security and Exclusion Fencing.

Dual End Wire Feed

Dual end wire feed systems allow for production of two fences at the same time.

Fast Change Overs

Automated Crimp Drum allows for rapid changeovers when specification changes are required.

Roll Shuttle Design

Roll shuttle allows for a controlled motion to layer the fence before the windup. This prevents the knots or line wires from ‘stacking’ on top of each other, keeping the roll diameter compact.

Continuous Production

Finished rolls are automatically removed to the tie-off and pickup zone, allowing for continuous production. When the finished roll ends are secured, the roll clamp re-sets to the windup area.

Statistics & Telemetry

Reporting module provides for Machine displayed operational status including faults, run hours, mechanical history. Mobile device compatible with remote distribution of reports.

Maintenance

  • Knot system requires fewer parts and less complexity.
  • Quick change components for ease of maintenance and rapid replacement of wire contact area components.
  • Additional height back frame for better coiled wire payoff.
  • Rockwell AB Automation and hardware used throughout.
  • Automatic distribution of alerts or remote reports for faults and production data.

Operator

  • Integrated PLC Machine Safety with light curtains, laser scanner, and magnetic RFID guard sensing.
  • Lifting operator platform for ease of wire threading.
  • Individual axis control over knot tying motion.
  • Machine sits on feet allowing all-round access for cleaning and machine inspections.

Environmental

  • Machine flexibility means smaller factory footprint, fewer cables, air lines, required to produce two types of fence.
  • Lower noise dB levels in factory.

Economic

  • Fixed Lokk production at up to 50bpm (stay wires per minute) is a 25% increase in productivity over other machines.
  • Long roll length capability; roll size up to 1300mm diameter/1500kg maximum.
  • Regenerative power convertors supply excess power back into the factory wide grid.
  • Modular design requires less time to install and commission.
