Mecal MC 304 Atlas

For ultra high speed machining of aluminium – Steel – Brass – Copper and PVC materials. The Atlas can be used in numerous applications including, windows, doors and curtain walling, automotive, aerospace, engineering, internal partitions, sign manufacturing, air conditioning and refrigeration. We have installed these machines for a very diverse range of applications including; machining slots, pockets, holes, custom shapes, end slotting, tapping, rigid tapping applications, drilling and flow drilling.

Subject to technical changes

Clamping Choices

DPM-where the clamps are sequentially positioned by the spindle carriage.

MMI-this choice has each clamp motorised to move individually to position.

Both versions have 8 clamps as standard, additional items can be added to suit application.


Job simulator software which shows an accurate simulation of the actual job in real time very graphically. Indicating timings and potential process errors.

Centre Stops

The optional pneumatic centre stops combine with the standard end stops to allow loading of 4 pieces.

Angle Drives

Angle drive with 2 tools can be orientated in either Y axis or Z axis direction, the required direction must be specified on ordering.

Angle drive with sawblade can be orientated in either Y axis or Z axis direction, the required direction must be specified on ordering.

Optional additional magazine may be required for auto change of the unit. The tools within the angle drive have to be manually changed.

Additional Magazine

Commonly used to mount the angle drive heads.

Spindle Upgrades

7.5kw air cooled standard type

7.5kw air cooled with axial encoder to facilitate rigid tapping functions.

Swarf Drawers

Set mobile of steel swarf collection drawers

Other Options

Bar Code Reader

For receiving job data when integrated with a double mitre saw that has the thermal label printer. The job data is usually provided by external software.

4 Axis Machining

A axis rotates the spindle at any angle from -45° to + -45° using a powerful servo drive system.

Loading Zone

The Atlas machines have a dual zone feature as standard. The machine can work any job in either zone, or as one job using the full length of the machine.

Mecal CAD CAM 3D

Designed to be the most advanced and easy to use system currently available. All of the basic programming is available with pre-loaded macros which are applied by a simple drag and drop process. The graphical 3D presentation is a clear and accurate representation that can be viewed from any angle to check for errors, and it demonstrates the orientation for the workpiece to be correctly loaded.

External Connections

We have the ability to connect to many external window packages (including Schucal-Logikal) sometimes a linking program is required at additional cost.

The converter imports IGES files in completed SW CAD 3D and creates the program to process the job. This function is in high demand from industrial clients using Inventor-Solid Works and Solid Edge type programs.

Tool Magazine

The 8 position automatic tool magazine is mounted on the spindle carriage to reduce tool change times to an absolute minimum.


The machine is supplied with a mesh fence on rear and both ends with a split light curtain at front allowing loading in either zone while the machine is operating in the live zone.
