MECAL “MC 311” Fabrication Centre

This machining centre is designed for machining and cutting small parts starting from a complete stock length of Aluminum or light alloy extruded profile.

Machine has a 3400 mm long basement where the X-axis moves on, 5 CNC axis and equipped with a cutting unit with ∅ 500mm (19.6″) saw blade at the left end. 

Possibility of adding a boring station with two drills to bore both ends of the part that has been cut (on the machine (optional). 

In this quotation, counter-blocks (clamping fixtures) are not included. They will be defined after further analysis of profiles / operations. Customer is required to send sample profiles to Mecal.

To be able to correctly define the configuration of the machine and design the clamping fixtures, it is necessary to receive:

  • Dxf of each extrusion
  • Detailed drawing of the parts to be executed
  • Specification of the materials to be worked
  • Geometric tolerances and dimensions

  • 5 CNC controlled axes: X-Y-Z head movement, A spindle rotation +/- 90°, feeding of the movable clamps
  • Centralized lubrication system for linear bearings and ball screws
  • PLC and CNC interface for machine management
  • Windows 10 License
  • Safety light curtain 
  • Perimetric fence on three sides
  • Movement of the X-Y-Z axes as well as the clamp movement through profiled linear bearings and ball screws driven by Mitsubishi servo motors  
  • 4 clamps in the centre of the machine: 3 fixed and 1 with independent movement, driven by servo motor, that supports the bar during the processing and feeds it to the cutting unit

  • Useful stroke: X = 1700mm (67"),  Y = 150mm (5.9"),  Z  = 100mm (3.9")   
  • 5 CNC controlled axes: X-Y-Z head movement, A spindle rotation +/- 90°, feeding of the movable clamps
  • ∅ 500mm (19.6") saw blade
  • Max length of the bar: 7000mm (23')
  • Max weight of the profile: 10 kg/m (6.9 lbs/ft)
  • Tool holders set HSK 63 F,  qty: 12 pcs.
  • Tolerance on the axis positioning: ± 0,1mm (±0.004")
  • Electro-spindle with encoder, power: 10 Kw (S1), rigid tapping
  • Tool holder system: HSK 63 F
  • Tool storage: 12 places

  • ∅ 500mm (19.6") saw blade
  • Windows 10 License
  • Safety light curtain
