Radial  550

Electronic twin-head cutting-off machine with radial blade movement, automatic traverse of the moving head on recirculating ball bearings by rack and pinion system; tilting inwards up to 30°, designed for cutting large profiles. The blade feed is controled by two hydro-pneumatic cylinders.

Mobile heads tilting

The blade holder assembly, located on each of the movable heads, can be positioned by pneumatic cylinders, relative to the profile support plane of the profile, at 90°, 45°, 30° and at intermediate inward angles. Mobile units are equipped with integral pneumatic drop-down protections of the machining area.


The control panel, installed on a support sliding on bearings along the front side of the machine, allows correct mobile heads positioning in accordance with the required cutting schedule. The interface uses a 7” touch-screen and fully personalised software and is packed with bespoke functions that are unique to this machine. The machining cycle can be optimised by creating cutting lists, thereby reducing scrap and cycle times for parts loading-unloading. 

Movement on recirculating ball bearing guides

The mobile head moves along the X-axis on recirculating ball bearing guides and rails; this solution has low friction resistance so as to allow high speeds and maximum precision of movement. An absolute magnetic band positioning system ensures the correct position. The recirculating ball bearing rails are extremely compact, easy to lubricate and guarantee long life and performance over time.

Digital viewer for intermediate angles (Optional)

In the presence of pneumatic tilting of the moving heads, the intermediate angle viewer allows the tilting of the cutting unit to be identified with absolute precision, ensuring the accuracy of the cut profiles. Especially useful in making out-of-square cuts, it allows the operator to quickly and accurately identify the required angle.

Pneumatic intermediate support (Optional)

The pneumatic intermediate support is extremely useful when cutting light profiles of considerable lengths. In this case, the pneumatic support will, automatically, provide the ideal condition to support the profile. This accessory is available for all lengths, but is specifically recommended on machines having 6-meter useful cuts.

Radial 550 Printer preparation Emmegi
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.
