Mecal MC312 Taurus 5 Axis Machining Centre

Enclosed 8 meter (315″) 5 Axis machining centre, for ultra high speed machining of Aluminium, Steel, Brass, Copper, and PVC materials.

The brand new Taurus cannot be beaten on productivity, on average it’s 30% faster than the nearest rival machining centres.

This compact, enclosed machining centre can be used in numerous applications including windows, doors and curtain walling, automotive, aerospace, engineering, internal partitions, sign manufacturing, air conditioning and refrigeration. Mecal have already installed these machines world wide for a very diverse range of applications including; machining slots, pockets, holes, custom shapes, end slotting, tapping, rigid tapping applications, drilling and flow drilling.

Clamping options

MMI-this choice has each clamp motorised to move individually to position. MDT-this choice has each clamp motorised in a different way, they are more powerful and now each clamp is an additional axis. For example you can have 4 programs for individual components (eg parts for a window sash) the process will saw each piece to length, mitred if required then separate the elements to allow machining of 3 sides and ends if required. Both versions have 8 clamps as standard, additional items can be added to suit application.

Simulator Software

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

Belt Conveyor

A rubberised belt conveyor to transport captured swarf and offcut pieces to the end of the machine where a collection container can be placed.

Tool Presetting Probe

Tool Pre-setting Probe

Multidirectional Probe

Multi directional probe with detection based on Z axis orientation

Barcode 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.

10kw Spindle

Spindle of 10kw at 24.000 RPM with HSK F63 tool holder

5 Axis Machining

Ability to work 3 sides and both ends and any intermediate angle. A sawblade can operate along the X axis or across the Y axis in either the horizontal or vertical plane. Mitre cuts are also possible.

Loading Zones

x2 independent rotating tables with 4 zero reference stops offer unbeatable production potential. 4 different jobs of appropriate length can be worked in the dual zone mode, or one long job can be worked with the tables synchronised to provide full length loading.

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.

Tool Magazine

12 position automatic tool magazine is mounted centrally to reduce tool change times to an absolute minimum.

Saw blade

Equipped with a saw blade max dia 300mm (11.8″)
