MECAL SW 553 ARGUS double miter saw

The “SW 553 Argus” is the most sold Mecal double mitre saw. The saw is equipped with 550mm (19.7″) blades and features cutting heads that are tilting automatically and independently outward. Left cutting unit is stationary, while the right one is motorized and moves along the whole length of the saw.  Blade feed direction is from back to forward.  The “SW 553 Argus” is available in 5000mm (16.4′) and 6000mm (20′) lengths.

GENERAL

The Mecal “SW 553 Argus” is a back stroke double mitre saw ideal for applications such as residential or commercial windows, storefronts, railings as well as industrial aluminum profile cutting. The saw can cut straight or mitre both on vinyl or aluminum extrusions.

The saw features a motorized right head positioning, while the left cutting unit is stationary. Blade feed direction is from back to forward. The blades tilt automatically at any angle between 22.5° outwards to 90° by means of pneumatic cylinders even if the adjustment of the tilting angles must be done manually moving a mechanical reference stop .

Machine is 4m useful cutting length with double head simultaneously, nevertheless with a special function, it is possible to cut oversize lengths up to approximately twice the maximum cut length.

Machine interface features a Windows based Schneider Electric HMI MAGELIS 10” touch screen as well as an USB port and a RJ45 Ethernet connection. 

OPERATION

To perform the cut, the operator must hold simultaneously two pushbuttons with both hands. As soon as the cut is performed and one button is released, the blades retract in their housing. Hydro-pneumatic cylinders ensures the precise index of the blades.

SAFETIES

The Mecal “SW 553 Argus” aluminum double mitre saw is provided with two lifting covers (one each cutting head) as part of the standard safety features to provide full protection to the operator.
