Project of the month July 2018:Combined punching and milling unit for inline prefabrication

Punching and milling unit based on ME 41/6.1


The task:

  • Introduction of position-specific punching and lateral sectioning of profiles.
  • Integration of the unit in an existing extrusion line.
  • Objective: To avoid prefabrication work outside of the extrusion line.

The solution:

  • Punching and milling unit based on ME 41 / 6.1 with 2 fixed milling units. The punching unit stamps the desired punch pattern, respecting the distance to the profile edge. The milling units process the profile laterally. The punching / milling pattern is programmed via the machine controller ME Control 20/2.
