Stepping up production
TSA Aluminium (Teesside Architectural Aluminium) owner Paul McPherson chose KOMBIMATEC when he decided to install automated CNC production machinery to increase output of its aluminium window frames, entrances and curtain walling.
Kombimatec’s solution included its AMC308 Automatic CNC Machining Centre developed for both aluminium and PVC-U profiles. The machine automatically performs all drilling, routing, slotting, tapping and milling functions via its control system and touch screen interface and includes four adjustable pneumatic clamps, electronic variable speed control and an automatic tool change cabinet as part of its specification.
The AMC308 is fed by the DGS450/500 Electronic Double Mitre Saw, which is matched to the throughput of the CNC. The version supplied to TSA Aluminium includes 500mm diameter TCT saw blades, a 4000 mm cutting length, adjustable angles 90-45-22.5 degrees and automatically tilting saw heads.
