Since 30 years

Our strategy is based on innovation

UNICUM began since the 90ties to produce motors for swimming pool covers; at that time the market was in its early stage.

Its consolidated knowledge of power transmission components allows UNICUM to deeply understand customers’ needs thus becoming quickly the market leader in this niche.

The Market Leader

Heavy investments in research and development, together with company know-how and experience, brought to the conception of some patented solutions answering and sometimes even anticipating customers’ expectations. Production capacity have been also continuously improved, either in terms of volume and quality.

If UNICUM is still a market leader today, this is a direct consequence of this strategy which has been preserved and developed since the origins: technical innovation, high service standards and an extensive production quality control.

UNICUM technology and patents

Constant Positioning System (patent CPS)

It assures that cover is correctly hold in its position when the motor is stopped and not powered. That’s a security function which is obtained by using a smart permanent magnetic brake, replacing the traditional electromagnetic brake which is often source of failures when stuck.

Mechanical Limit Switch (patent MLS)

It’s the final solution against problems related to limit switches; a mechanical coding device replaces electronical sensors which, as a matter of fact, are very sensitives and fault prone to electrical and magnetic perturbations as the ones typically present during thunderstorms.

EDEL, the optional stainless steel housing

EDEL is a range of product equipped of a stainless steel housing which combines mechanical robustness and oxidation resistance.

Power supply electronic control boxes conceived for easy installation

It’s a range of electronic control boxes which are offering a reliable and stable AC/DC power conversion together with motor control. They are conceived to ease their installation even if a complete set of up to date features is available on the board.
