WEINIG Conturex 226: Uncompromising dynamism and optimal performance
No compromises – in industrial window production, you need optimal performance and flexibility.
The Conturex 226 achieves the maximum expansion level in the one-man machine segment. Solutions are available in the system area for further performance enhancement.
Four tables and four main spindles share the processing stages to create a seamless and highly efficient process. This enables three parts to be processed simultaneously.
The variety of products and systems in windows, doors and facades is steadily increasing. Processing of individual pieces is correspondingly complex. Not only are transverse and longitudinal processing and drilling required in high quality, elaborate processing such as rabbet joint milling, lock housing and dovetail joints are also required for facade and conservatory parts.
Preparations for fittings are also of the utmost importance. This includes all drillings and milling for door handles, corner/scissor bearings, drilling plugs or notched holes for locking elements, door hinges of various designs, multi-point locks, drillings for cable feedthroughs and installation, handle shells on lift-slide doors and much more besides. The Conturex meets even these requirements highly flexibly and fully automatically.

Multiple spindle drilling head
The WEINIG multiple spindle drilling head covers such window production applications as door handles, corner bearings and horizontal drilling, such as corner connections and marking drillings. The device enhances the performance and flexibility of the individual Conturex models.
Safety – sound insulation – dust protection
The appearance and design of the Conturex reveal its cutting-edge technology. The elaborate full paneling concept takes consistent account of the high performance. This yields an exemplary level of safety with improved protection from dust and noise.
The controlled extraction directly adjacent to the work piece and on the tool is unique in the market. The machine functions without expensive chip removal and only requires minimum care.
“All types of corner joints are possible”
Austrian carpentry firm Nagl specializes in windows. To ensure the required precision, the company has worked with WEINIG technology for many years.
Axamer Lizum is not only the largest ski resort in the vicinity of Innsbruck. It is also home to Nagl. The small business supplies primarily private customers with wood and wood/aluminum window elements. Some 2,500 units are designed and produced each year, comprising windows as well as many large lift/slide doors. The company has been using WEINIG machines in its production for 40 years. However, requirements in the market have changed dramatically in recent years. Today, individually designed windows, special sizes of up to 6 x 12 meters and stronger profiles due to multiple glazing are a reality at Nagl. “Our old WEINIG system could no longer meet these requirements so we had to look around,” says Franz Nagl. Ultimately, they decided on WEINIG technology once again. “WEINIG plays a leading role in the window manufacturing sector. So it made sense to stick with the brand,” says Franz Nagl.
The new Powermat 700 moulder and Conturex Compact CNC machine are designed specially for profitable window production for smaller operations. An important criterion for switching to the new technology was the potential for flexible single-part production with relatively short set-up times. The two machines are now responsible for the complete processing of windows. The Powermat 700 performs pre-planing on all four sides of the window scantlings. Then, the Conturex Compact “takes over” and completes all required work stages in a single pass. The tool changer provides space for 70 tools for milling, drilling or profiling. Window frames can be produced in their entirety. “With the Conturex, we can produce all corner joints required by the market as well as processing slanted and round work pieces,” says a delighted Franz Nagl.
