Unison, the UK-based inventors of all-electric tube manipulation, marked its 50th anniversary with a big birthday celebration at its Scarborough-based headquarters on Wednesday 24th May 2023.

Just short of 100 customers, colleagues, friends and members of the Made In Yorkshire trade group attended the event, which began with a hearty brunch and a warm welcome by Unison’s joint managing director, Alan Pickering.

Technology talks and machine tool presentations followed. These included demonstrations of Unison’s ultra-precise, all-electric Breeze range of tube bending machines, as well as fibre laser cutting machines from Unison’s sister company, Nukon Lasers UK.

Unison’s newly released Opt2Sim Scan handheld 3D tube scanning system – the latest addition to the company’s advanced Opt2Sim Suite of tube simulation software – also attracted a great deal of attention.

“I’d like to thank everyone who attended and helped make our 50th anniversary celebrations such a resounding success,” commented Alan Pickering. “It was fantastic to meet customers and friends old and new – many of whom had travelled a considerable distance to celebrate with us.

“I’d also like to thank every member of the incredible Unison team for the hard work they put into making the day possible. Here’s to another 50 years of intelligent tube technology.”
