Profile machining centre

The SBZ 118, a 3-axis profile machining centre with optional 5-sided machining that’s easy to use and has a minimal footprint, expands the elumatec range of entry-level products for automated CNC machining of aluminium, PVC and thin-walled steel profiles. With its machining length of three metres, this versatile and powerful model is the most compact CNC machine in the current elumatec range.


The SBZ 118 offers full functionality for milling, drilling and notching in a small space. It was developed for machining up to five sides with an optional angle head and end milling machine, depending on the individual configuration. The proven inclined bed technology and the on-board 5-fold tool changer make it easy to use.


The SBZ 118 is made particularly attractive by individually configurable optional equipment, including up to two on-board angle head changers, expansion to up to six clamps, an additional length stop with overlength machining and a barcode scanner. A side service door facilitates set-up and maintenance, and the new front visor enables ergonomic and above all safe operation – even for tall people. Plus, the SBZ 118 is eluCloud ready to meet the requirements of Industry 4.0.


  • Designed for economical and efficient machining of aluminium, PVC and thin-walled steel profiles
  • All operations, such as routing, drilling, notching and tapping, are performed while the profile bar is stationary to protect the profile surfaces
  • Better machining results thanks to intelligent control technology
  • Fast positioning of the machining unit with up to 60 m/min thanks to dynamic servo drives
  • Tapping without compensation chuck
  • Automatic clamp recognition and clamp positioning
  • Automatic on-board tool changer with five tool tray positions (without tools)
  • State-of-the-art 3-axis controller
  • Ergonomic and stable operation thanks to the advanced inclined bed
  • Automatic clamp recognition and positioning prevents collisions
  • Power torque routing motor with enclosed speed control for short spindle start-up and braking times.
  • Low power consumption thanks to intelligent control technology
  • DC link coupling in the axis drives for greater energy efficiency
  • Uninterruptible power supply (UPS)
  • Windows operating system
  • 15.6" panel PC, i3 processor, USB ports and network connection
  • Simple, stress-free program entry with eluCam on the operating panel, even during operation
  • eluCloud ready
  • Remote online maintenance
