Undercut Release System

The Progressive UniLifter system is the most widely used standard product for moulding and releasing undercuts. Smooth performance is attained due to the U-Coupling design, eliminating wear and binding found in other fixed angle lifter designs. The UniLifter undercut release system incorporates a three piece set: Core Blade, U-Coupling, and T-Gib.
