Capacity: Nominal
24" x 24", 24" Round
Blade Drive
Electric with sensorless vector control for smooth acceleration and full torque.
Speed Range
Infinitely variable: 500 FPM (9 to 152 m/min), 10 HP Standard. Blade speed can be automatically set when material is selected.
3° Canted Column
Standard 3-degree forward approach angle for increased efficiency in cutting of structural material.
Feed Force
Direct Force Sensing Electric Ball Screw Feed 0-350 lbs. (1560 N); column travels on recirculating linear ball ways. Feed pressure can be automatically set when material is selected
Blade
20' 2" (6147 mm) long x 2" (51 mm) wide, .063" (1.6 mm). (One Welded-Edge Band is furnished with each machine as part of standard start-up supplies).
Blade Guides
Rotating Easy Load Combination Carbide and Ball Bearing Roller guides with self tensioning design.
Blade Tension
Hydraulically controlled, 35,000 psi. max. (240 MPa). Machine equipped with automatic blade break/blade stall shut off switch.
Upper Blade Guide Arm
Hydraulically positioned and locking, controlled through the operator's touch screen.
Vises
Hydraulic, full stroking with 24" (610mm) high x 7" (180mm) wide faceplates. Variable vise pressure comes standard with machine. Includes full capacity Hydraulic hold-down (Nesting Clamp) mounted next to the in-feed machine vise for vertical clamping of structural shapes or multiple bar work.
Coolant System
Built-in with Flood and Automatic Mist Lubrication system (requires compressed air connection), including chip pan with manual hand crank type chip conveyor (optional power Chip Conveyor M8 is available).
Flushing Hose
Washes away chips from hard-to-get-at places reducing clean-up time.
Automatic Bar Feed
The Automatic Bar Feed design features a 120" (3048mm) stroke length with indexing speeds of up to 55 ft/min. The bar feed vise is servo driven with encoder feedback, and combines heavy duty rack and gear drive with preloaded recirculating linear guides. The vise itself is hydraulically clamped to prevent material slippage. Optional second machine vise and/or Hold down is available (must specify right or left hand machine configuration at the time of order - Option Codes F8 & F4). Optional Remnant reduce is available, See option code PS4 Weight Capacity: 750lbs/ft (1,118kg/m). Total Capacity: 7,500 lbs (3,400kg).
Amada Marvel PC3.1 Programmable Control
Provides a Programmable Logic Control Unit with an 8” color, touch screen display. The control features graphical part programming with memory 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, and number of pieces to be cut. Additional 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 to prevent blade damage. Material can also be fed through the machine manually in both directions using the hydraulic shuttle vise. Blade can be stopped with all other power functions operative.
