PVCU revolution

Elumatec will introduce a range of PVCU machining products at May’s FIT Show.

Offered in collaboration with Sturtz, the new machines will add PVCU capacity to Elumatec’s existing aluminium machining portfolio.

On the Elumatec stand at FIT, show-goers will have the chance to examine the Sturtz FlexCentre 160, and the Sturtz TXR 3/2 corner transom cleaner.

The FlexCentre 160 includes a six-axis machining module and a triple sawing unit, while the automatic preload of profile bars and off-load conveyor belt maximise productivity and efficiency.

The TXR 3/2 corner transom cleaner fully automates the cleaning of corners, transoms and crucifix welds. Spring-loaded knife units help accuracy, while flexible tooling options allow the machine to be quickly adapted for different purposes.

Also on display at the Birmingham NEC will be the Sturtz VSM Turbo Welder, a high-speed vertical four-point welder that can reduce welding times by up to 30%, according to the company.

Elumatec will also be demonstrating the latest module to be added to its eluCad software. Developed by its in-house software arm, elusoft, eluCloud allows fabricators to collate and evaluate production data and use it to monitor how efficient their machines are.

Phil Heavey, Elumatec’s managing director, said: “With these newest additions to the range, we’re bringing the same excellence, reliability and commitment to innovation we’ve always brought to aluminium fabricators to manufacturers of PVCU – and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to showcase some of these ground-breaking products to the industry’s best and brightest at May’s FIT Show.”
