Quality Control:

CAP Glazing Systems uses a QA / QC Checklist, along with disgnated quality control personal whose sole responsibility is to ensure that all aspects of the required fabrication design are implemented. In this fast paced industry you can’t afford “fly-by” or “hit and miss” quality control. This is why CAP Glazing Systems is your first choice!

We Provide

Fabrication Equipment:

 

Emmegi Diamant:

4-axis CNC machining centre with moving gantry structure. Designed for drilling, milling, thread cutting and cutting at angle any from 0° to 180° on bars or workpieces of aluminium, PVC, light alloys in general and steel. The moving part of the machine consists of a gantry with precision rack and pinion drive. The high power 7,5 kW electrically-driven spindle with HSK-63F tool holder allows machining operations, including heavy-duty work, with optimum results in terms of speed and accuracy. A 9-place tool magazine is installed behind the moving gantry structure. The machine can be used in double mode so as to minimize machine downtime, as it is possible to change the workpiece (load/unload) and the automatic setting of the vices in “concealed” time. It is also possible to load and consequently machine different workpieces and to perform different machining operations between the two work areas. The gantry is provided with a guard which, besides protecting the operator, also reduces the noise impact on the environment.

Rhino 900:

The RhinoFAB 900 Machining Center takes storefront and curtain wall material and pushes it through a fabrication center where it can drill or rout from the top, bottom and front to create fabrication holes and shapes and then a 90 degree upcut saw to trim or cut the product to the required size. Once a part has completed the fabrication cycle,The RhinoFAB 900 takes direct feed from the PartnerPak and Glazier Studio line of estimating and fabrication software.

KEY FEATURES:

9 Axis CNC High Speed Drills
90 Degree Up Cut Saw Built In
22" Saw Blade
Automated Cutting and Drilling
Swing Arm Mounted PC Control with Touch Screen
INdependent Oil Misting System for Cutting and Drilling
Automatic Part Depth Drill Compensation
Direct Import from PartnerPak and Glazier Studio

Elumatec SBZ 122 & Elumatec MGS Mitre Saw

The SBZ 122 is designed for economical and efficient machining of aluminium, PVC and steel profiles. All operations such as routing and drilling are performed while the profile bar is stationary to protect the profile surfaces. Fast positioning of the machining unit with up to 80 m/min thanks to dynamic servo drives. Tapping with compensation chuck. Manual tool changing, pneumatic ejection. Manual clamp positioning. Ergonomic operation thanks to the modern inclined bed. Increased work safety thanks to remote-controlled clamp activation and protective enclosure. Modern 3-axis controller
The absolute rotary encoder system means no axis homing is required. Automatic clamp recognition prevents collisions. Certified, drive-integrated safety functions. Low power consumption thanks to the intelligent control technology. DC link coupling in the axis drives with power feedback and brake. Energy buffering in the drives ensure energy recovery. Green Line cooling unit for the control cabinet with reduced energy consumption. Windows operating system. 15" flat screen display, USB ports and network connection. Simple, stress-free program entry with eluCam on the operating panel, even during operation. Remote maintenance via TCP/IP using existing Internet connection

The MGS Mitre Saw is the reliable elumatec principle "Sawing from below": Free access to the table surface for optimal loading and unloading of profiles. The patented saw arm suspension creates a cutting pressure towards the back fence which ensures safe clamping of the workpiece. Safety hood opens automatically. Pulsed coolant system. Standard equipped with saw blade. Pivoting range of 22.5° to the left and right manually with digital angle display. Tilting range pneumatic 90° - 45° (intermediate angles by means of turret stop and digital display).
