The Udylite Cyclemaster and Senior automatics feature a split-rail design to provide for simple and efficient operations. The machines, which are supplied as stand-alone models or as a part of a complete metal finishing system, can easily access solutions and electrodes and require minimal maintenance, according to the manufacturer.

The machines' work carrier supports the work and carries the current. The split rail rises and descends, elevating and lowering the work carrier. The pusher then moves the work carrier through the process cycle with positive indexing action that, unlike chain drives, permits variable rack spacing and can eliminate problems due to chain stretch and wear.

The machines feature a rugged, bridge-type integral frame construction that supports the entire unit, including the tanks. In addition, heavy, permanent direct bus connections eliminate cable replacement and the machines allow for straight vertical lifting of all of the weight, enabling easy handling of large and heavy practical rack loads.

The machines also feature cushioned hydraulic power plus square transfer to eliminate whip, sway, and dropped parts, reducing drag outs and rejects. Additionally, their simple design allows for a small number of operating parts, which can minimize downtime and maintenance.

The pre-assembled and pre-tested machines also offer a shortened current path, which reduces voltage drop and provides a larger current capacity per rack with minimal KVA usage.

Safety features include a fail safe circuit control to eliminate over-travel. In addition, the split-rail design permits exceptional tank ventilation with minimal use of exhaust power.
