Mecal MC 316 Aluminum Fabrication Centre

Mecal MC 316 fabrication centre is designed for milling, drilling, tapping and cutting operations for aluminum profiles automatically. The unit is consisting of a loading magazine, servo material pusher, machining station, cutting station, and motorized outfit table. 

Multiple stock lengths are loaded on the in-feed magazine. The profiles are fed one at a time through the rotating ring style (turret) milling/drilling station with multiple electro-spindles. Machine is equipped horizontal and vertical clamping systems to hold down the extrusion doing the machining and cutting operations. After the milling, the pusher advances and the cut performed by a ∅ 550mm (21.6″)  blade that is capable to make straight and miter cuts and notches. Finished parts are transferred onto a belt conveyor which then carries the them out of the cutting station. A pneumatic kicker will push the parts onto the cross-belt conveyor of the out-feed table.
