Blade Drive
Electric with sensor-less vector control for smooth acceleration and full torque.
Tilting Column
For miter cutting up to 60° left and right of vertical. Hydraulically powered cam link design includes built in protractor with Amada Marvel PC3 controller.
3 Degree Canted Column
Standard 3° forward approach angle for increased efficiency in cutting of structural materials.
Feed Force
Direct Force Sensing Electrical Ball Screw Feed which combines more consistent feed force with greater control, 0 - 300 lbs, column travels on re-circulating linear ball ways. Feed pressure can be automatically set when material is selected, or adjusted manually using the PC3 touch screen.
Blade Guides
Rotating Easy Load Combination Carbide and Ball Bearing Roller guides with self tensioning design.
Blade Tension
Hydraulically controlled, 45,000 psi. max. Machine equipped with automatic blade break/blade stall shut-off switch.
Upper Blade Guide Arm
Hydraulically positioned locking, controlled using the PC3 touch screen
Vises
Hydraulic, full stroking with 9-12" high x 15" wide 60° face plates. Optional variable vise pressure available.
Coolant System
Build-in with flood system, available with Drop Lubrication system, including chip pan with chip removal ramp.
Work-Rest Rollers
Two turned ball bearing rollers, one on the entry side and one on the discharge side of the machine bed.
Flushing Hose
Washes away chips from hard-to-get places reducing clean-up time.
Automatic Bar Feed
The Automatic Bar Feed design features a 48" stroke length with indexing speeds of up to 60 ft./min., and creep speeds of 33 in./min. The bar feed vise is servo driven with encoder feedback, and combines precision double ball screws with preloaded recirculating linear guides, resulting in positioning accuracy of ± .005" per index. The vise itself is hydraulically clamped to prevent material slippage. Optional outboard and second machine vises are available.
Amada Marvel PC3 Programmable Control
Provides a Programmable Logic Control Unit with a 10" color, touch screen display. The control features graphical part programming with memor for up to 500 jobs and parts, as well as a material selection chart and customizable material library. both blade speed and feed force are automatically set according to material type for optimal cutting performance. Job programming consists of setting the cut-off length, angle and number of pieces to be cut. Additoinal features include Inch/Metric capability, out-of-stock shut down device, a fast cut job option and expanded memory storage using removable media. Also includes Jammed Blade Protection that senses resistance as the column returns and stops motion to prevent blade damage. Material can also be fed through the machine manually in both directions using the hydraulic.
Standard Left-to-Right Work Entry
Opposite Hand or Right-to-Left work entry available.
Motors
Coolant Pump: 1/8 H.P., Hydraulic Pump: 5 H.P., Main Drive: 7.5 H.P.
Controls
