Mecal SW 553 Argus + R version

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 pneumatic positioned outward tilting heads with a range of 90°, 45° or 22,5° and mechanical stops for intermediate angles.  Left unit is fixed while the right unit is moveable.

A large sector plate ensures the most accurate setting of angles, with default positions at 90° and 45°. Windows embedded PC control system is included with Magelis 10″colour touch screen HMI and 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  can also receive cutting lists from compatible external software via the LAN or USB, and also print labels containing job data or bar codes for integration with CNC machining centres. The version has an extended width of cut with slightly less height.

  • 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 scalled 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 SW555 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

Pneumatic tilting between fixed 90deg and moving stop on extra large calibrated sector plate for increased positional accuracy. The 45° position has a positive location as it is the most common used angle. The angle range is +45 internal direction° 90° -22.5°.external direction

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).

  • 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 step cutting cycle
  • 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

Step Cut, often referred to as cleat cutting, the moving head becomes an incremental feeder for automatic repetition cutting normally of short pieces.
