Mecal MC312 Taurus 5 Axis Machining Center

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

The Taurus cannot be beaten on productivity, it is on average 30% faster than its nearest rivals, 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.

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
2 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 diam 350mm (13.7")
Clamping choice
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
Automatic tool length measuring device
Multidirectional Probe
Multi directional probe with detection based on Z axis orientation
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.
