Faccin 3DP2521 Plate Bending Roll
M&M Dallas enhances their fabrication capabilities with their recent acquisition of a new Faccin 3DP2521, 3 Roll Double Pinch Plate Bending Roll. The unit can handle 3/8” thick material up to 8’ long and has a Cone Rolling Attachment.
The DP3 is the latest evolution of the traditional three roll double pinch plate bending machine. It has been designed to cover the needs of the fabrication shop: Strength, User Friendliness, and Versatility. FACCIN’s experience in manufacturing heavy and super-heavy duty machines is applied to the design of the DP3 series of plate rolls.
The DP3 series is the most precise 3 roll machine in its category. The RGS design reduces to a minimum the distance between the bending points guaranteeing higher bending accuracy.
The MCS bearing system, incorporating 4 independent bearings for each bending roll is a standard feature of the DP3. It guarantees higher reliability (higher capacity of load absorption) and increases the range for tilting the side rolls, resulting in more versatility, when rolling cones.
The Ultra wide roll supports with lubrication circuit are mounted over the slides to prevent wear and tear.
Another important standard feature to increase the versatility of the machine is the roll shaft extensions to allow dies to be fitted to bend profile and pipe.
The very high rotation power is a guarantee of the DP3’s superior rolling torque and speed, available without loss of energy as all three rolls are driven independently by hydro-motors and gearboxes directly coupled to the rolls shafts.
- Linear slides for roll movement
- Ultra wide roll supports
- 4 independent bearings on bending rolls
- Three independently driven rolls
- Full hydraulic power
- Metric scales for rolls positioning
- Front swing console with handle
- Lubrication circuit

- Safety Guard cable
Mazak Nexus VCN 510C
M&M Precision Products continues to set the pace with their recent acquisition of a new Mazak VCN 510C, high speed multi-axis machining center. The new Nexus VCN 510C machine built in Florence, KY, with 40-taper spindle. The new VCN 510C delivers 20 Hp, 12,000 rpm.
The high-speed rapid-traverse rate of 1417 ipm at 0.5 G acceleration and 2.0 seconds tool-to-tool time further slashes non-cutting time in favor of increased production. The machine is equipped with a 30-tool capacity ATC for extra tool storage.
The VCN 510C also provides a large machining area, with X-axis travel of 41.3 in., Y-axis and Z-axis travel range of 20 in. Table size is 51 in. x 21 in. and maximum work weight is 2,640 lbs. Overall machine dimensions are very compact, saving valuable floor space. This attractively positioned machine offers a unique blend of rigid machining capability, quality of construction.
The NEXUS Vertical Machining Centers are built with more productivity-enhancing features than any other verticals in their class. This makes them an incredible value for shops large and small. Packed with 30 tools, a variety of workpieces can be machined without changing the tool setup. The Mazatrol Fusion 640 CNC control features the simplest, smartest conversational programming complete with monitoring and diagnostics. Environmentally friendly, too!
Durma AD-S 30135 Press Brake
M&M Precision Products enhances their CNC precision press brake forming capabilities with a recent acquisition of a new Durma AD-S 30135 Press Brake.
The new brake has standard features including:
- Delem DA66W Windows NT Based Graphical Controller
- Y1, Y2 Programmable Ram Positioning
- X/R Programmable Back Gauge Positioning
- CNC Calculated and Controlled Crowning
- Universal Wedge Punch Clamp(European or American Punches)
- Two T-Slotted Front Sheet Supports
- T-Slotted Table
- Rear Work Light
- Dual Palm/Foot Station w/4 Mode Selection Via Key
- Side & Rear Mechanical Safety Fences
With 150 ton capacity and 120" bending length, the new press brake makes a very nice addition for production output to service customers better.
NTC Laser Cutting System
Continuing its’ commitment to advanced manufacturing technology, M&M’s Dallas shop has recently added an NTC America Corporation model TLZ-510, an ultra-high speed 2-dimensional, 3-axis laser system with dual pallet changer and flying optics provides high-speed cutting, flexibility and precision for 3-axis laser cutting of a variety of materials.
With cutting feed rates to 1,575 inches per minute and rapid feed rates to 3,739 inches per minute, the TLZ provides the speed for virtually any high-production cutting. The TLZ dual-pallet changer allows for quick set up time and flexible cutting operations. Robust construction and stability provide for high repeatability, positioning accuracy and consistent cutting action. The 3,300 watt system can cut a maximum sheet size of 60” x 120” with a positioning accuracy of 0.002”.
Calypso WaterJet System
The commercial products division in Dallas has added a Calypso WaterJet Cutting System to their fabricating capabilities. The waterjet is capable of cutting very large parts with outstanding precision, as well as cutting small parts of any shape from virtually any material.
The unit cuts all grades of steel, stainless and any alloy up to 6" thick. Aluminum can be cut without causing harm to the material in any way, no discoloration or warping. Materials like glass, plexi-glass and even bullet proof glass can be cut regardless of shape, leaving a smooth sanded edge finish. Even wood can be cut with great precision, perfect for counter tops or unusual shapes, will cut through laminated wood without harm to laminate.
The Calypso WaterJet Cutting System is capable of producing 5 different cut qualities. The fastest speeds are used for non-showing edges and edges requiring hand processing of some type. The best quality is used for miter edges or moving right to polishing pads. Accuracy of +/- .003" can be provided.
