Mecal SW 453 Argus-3

New Standard features – Brand new design – Magelis 10″ touch screen HMI – LED machine status strips – Electronic section height detector – Pneumatic pop-up centre support

Double mitre saw with electronically positioned outward tilting heads with a range of any angle between 90° & 22,5°. This machine uses powerful DC servo motors and heavy duty reduction gearboxes to do so. Ideal for applications where many different cutting angles are required.

The Windows embedded PC control system with Magelis 10″ colour touch screen HMI is simple to use for either quick processing of random cuts, or from pre-programmed cutting lists. The system allows the composition of complicated frame styles. The PC has the ability to receive cutting lists from compatible external software via the LAN or USB, and print labels containing job data or bar codes for integration with CNC machining centres.

Widely used in the window and door frame industry.

  • Automatic step or cleat cutting cycles are no longer offered standard on this machine as a result of updated health and safety legislation. For more information, please contact us on    01384 264950 for solution requirements.
Mecal Label Printer

Thermal label printer for producing bar codes when integrating with a cnc machining centre or recording job/customer data to attach to the workpiece.


Pure oil micro-mist blade lubrication system recommended over the standard soluble system, as it delivers a high performance neat oil in minute highly controlled doses. Giving a cleaner working environment with no odours or risk of skin irritation sometimes connected with soluble fluids. Each dose cane be scaled by adjusting the size of each pulse and the frequency of each pulse.

EW-3 Extractor

Complete swarf extraction system taking from both sawblade chambers, fully compliant to handle aluminium, pvc, brass, wood, copper and composite materials. The steel container is removable for easy emptying, and the filter bags are maintained with either the standard manual shake lever or the optional pneumatic shake.

Sound Insulation

Available as SW455 version factory order with full sound reducing cabinet and automatic loading doors. It is not possible to have vacuum swarf extraction. The standard machine has a central collection trough with open ends to sweep out the swarf, or the optional belt conveyor can be fitted.

Belt Conveyor

Available for all versions, but more suited to the SW555 version with enclosed cabinet.

Angle Setting

NC with servo drive through heavy duty reduction gearbox. the angle range is 90° -22.5° external direction with a positioning accuracy of ±0.1mm

Cutting Control

Equipped with blade stroke limiter to reduce cycle times, feed speed adjuster and standard mist spray unit. (optional Addimist pure oil micro mist available)

Height Detector

A very useful device that precisely measures the exact material height for complete accuracy. A side benefit is that it is not necessary to permanently load all of the profile height data into the HMI

Roller Support

Fitted with a mobile roller support table and additional horizontal vice.

Control System

  • 10″ Touch screen HMI Accessible via Ethernet and external usb, via wifi (through a Wifi adapter Rj45).
    • Positioning of cutting angles
    • Import DXF graphics
    • Import cutting lists from compatible software.
    • Printer output of linear barcode and QR code.
    • Manage and execute single cuts and cutting lists
    • Store cutting lists uploaded form the USB interface
    • Manage automatic long and short cut functions
    • Graphical display of the profile positioning
  • Trim and wedge cutting

Cutting Functions

Long Cut, enables the machine to automatically perform cuts longer than the physical length eg 4000mm model can cut up to 7.3m

Short cut, similar to the long cut the machine can reduce the minimum physical cut by around 100mm
