Mecal Falcon 4 Axis Machining Centre

For ultra high speed machining of aluminium – Steel – Brass – Copper and PVC materials. The Falcon cannot be beaten on productivity, it is on average 30% faster than its nearest rivals and 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

Swarf Drawers

Set mobile of steel swarf collection drawers

Additional Magazine

Commonly used to mount the angle drive heads.

Spindle Upgrades

8.5kw air cooled with axial encoder to facilitate rigid tapping functions.


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

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.

Belt Conveyor

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

Other Options

Automatic length measuring device

Multi directional probe with detection based on Z axis orientation

Bar Code Reader

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

4 Axis Machining

4 Axis machining capability with A axis rotation performed by a rotating table with a range of -125° to +125°

Loading Zones

Single loading zone with 2 zero reference stops allowing 2 different jobs of appropriate length to be worked. Alternatively, on full length job, the machine ends can be opened to allow machining of profiles longer than the Z axis.

Clamping Positioning

MMI-system where each clamp is individually motorised for the most rapid set up times possible. They can also move during the working cycle to allow machining in zones where a standard clamp would occupy.

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

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