“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.
