The solid machine structure of our cutting and processing centers is designed for high capacity utilization and guarantees a long service life with very high process reliability in window and facade construction. A transport axis of the Optima VI sawing center, for example, weighs up to 1.5 tons and its solid construction enables the necessary stability of the high-precision movement technology.

Our assembly team uses an electric chain hoist to set up heavy support parts for the movable axles. With the load-bearing overhead traveling crane, the assemblies are positioned effortlessly and with millimeter precision.

The transport axes fulfill one of the most important functions of a production system; they bring the profile to all processing stations and ensure predefined positioning accuracy even after the workpieces have been transferred between the sawing and processing modules. Depending on the focus of production, several work steps can be combined in one machine.

The following machining operations are possible in the 6-axis milling module with up to 16 tools:

  • Drainage and ventilation milling
  • Locking part markings
  • Fighter hole milling
  • Corner band and corner bearing marking
  • Handle and lock milling
  • As well as other common profile processing in window and door profiles

The cutting is carried out highly efficiently on the VI saw, with the cut and cut taking place in one sawing process. Further processing in the saw module: crosscut and notch cut for welding the fighters.

The next processing station can either be used as a notching saw for sharpening the fighters or as a counter milling machine with a tool change for counter profiling.
