For almost 90 years, fabricators across the globe have relied on the machinery expertise of elumatec, the aluminium machinery company – including uPVC and aluminium specialists Arkay Windows, a North London fabricator renowned throughout the region for quality, reliability and on time deliveries.

Already using elumatec products in its uPVC and aluminium production for a number of years, last year the respected firm expanded its capacity with three further acquisitions – a DG 104 double-mitre saw, and two SBZ 122/74 four-axis machining centres.

“The team at Arkay came to us with a problem that affects all fast-growing fabricators – the need to streamline production to meet the increasing demand for their products,” comments elumatec Regional Sales Manager Bryan Dando. “Our double-mitre saw and SBZ122 machining centres will allow them to efficiently machine aluminium and uPVC profiles to an exceptional standard, while taking up the minimal floor space.”

The SBZ 122/74 CNC machinery centre leads the way in intelligent profile machining. An innovative four-axis design and an upgraded machine bed allows for precise cutting at high-speed, with smarter disposal of waste materials. Despite the smaller footprint, the machining centre offers more ergonomic operation, allowing the operator to work closer to the machine thanks to a unique inclined bed, remote controlled activation of the re-designed clamps and a protective enclosure.

Manufactured in Germany, the state-of-the-art DG104 double-mitre saw is a highly versatile machine that can cut both high and wide profiles for series production and special applications. The DG104 can accommodate cutting length variants of up to 6,000mm, making it a hugely versatile product.
