Head protections
Automatic local head protections, made of scratch-resistant polycarbonate, are operated by a pneumatic cylinder with an anti-crushing device that resets the pneumatic load to zero when closing. They are mounted on a laterally sliding system to better shelter the operator in any cutting operation.

Load and unload
The cutting-off machine is equipped with a roller conveyor on a mobile head for standard loading and unloading procedures. The roller conveyor can be optionally fitted with an extra vice to immobilise the residual profile and an electronic machined profile thickness meter for automatic cutting positions correction in accordance with the real profile dimensions, with the associated surface treatments tolerance.
Cutting units inclination virtual axis

Inclination of each head, up to 22°30' outwards for both the aluminium and PVC machine versions, is achieved on two circular guides mounted on four pairs of steel rollers. This patented solution makes it possible to eliminate obstructions in the cutting area, all to the benefit of profile positioning and clamping, while also offering greater rigidity than traditional systems. X axis absolute magnetic strip positioning eliminates the need for the axes reference and connected cycle times.

Aluminum TKE 551 Profile clamping Tekna
Profile clamping

Making use of the ample space provided by the use of the virtual axis, clamping of the profile to be cut is performed by two horizontal hold-down devices with extreme precision and in absolute safely. For vertical clamping, particularly for special cuts, the machine can be equipped with a patented system of horizontal hold-down devices. Three mechanically operated intermediate supports deploy automatically to support the profile for very long cutting lengths.


The intuitively designed control panel allows correct mobile heads positioning in accordance with the required cutting schedule. The interface uses a 5.7” touch-screen and fully personalised software and is packed with bespoke functions that are unique to this machine. The control panel can be optionally installed on bearings sliding on a rail that spans the entire front of the machine. The machining cycle can be optimised by creating cutting lists, thereby reducing scrap and cycle times for parts loading-unloading.

Printer preparation (Optional)

The machine is prepared for the installation of a printer that can be selected from compatible models. The set-up includes software enabling for the label printing function, mechanical support elements for positioning on the machine, wiring and preparation for electrical connection, and a folding cover to protect the printer from shocks and possible entry of swarfs. The mechanical set-up for installation may vary according to the machine models.
