Machining For Trickle Vents

The new ventilation requirements have increased the need for trickle vents to be fitted into window frames. Most new vents are based on a 4000 mm sq module with one or two units being fitted to the window head section.

The need to machine 2x 16 mm wide slots, 60 mm to 80 mm deep and approx. 150 mm long presents a machining problem which can be a costly with conventional mortisers, especially if the slots are required at an angle in the head section. If the trickle vent is to be recessed then the problem is compounded by the need for a 22 mm wide slot 350 mm long and of uniform depth.

At JJ Smith we have developed a machine capable of automatically slotting the window head section at 3 to 4 times the production rates of existing equipment currently on the market. Whether the slots are angled or not we are able to machine a head section to accept the new recessed Titon Trimvent Select R16/4000 Trickle Vent in a total cycle time of 30 seconds including loading and unloading time.
