Balde Drive
Electric with sensorless vector control for smooth acceleration and full torque.
Speed Range
Infinitely variable: 60 to 400 FPM, 15 H.P. Standard. Blade speed can be automatically set when material is selected.
Tilting Column
For miter cutting up to 60° left and right of vertical. Variable speed, inverter driven, electronic tilt- Includes encoder feedback and touch screen display & control, for precision miter positioning. Electrically powered, chain driven, with encoder feedback and Amada Marvel PC3 controller.
3° Canted Column or Non-Canted Column
Standard 3° forward approach angle for increased efficiency in cutting of structural materials.
Feed Force
Direct Force Sensing Electric Ball Screw Feed 0 - 350 lbs.; column travels on recirculating linear ball ways. Feed pressure can be automatically set when material is selected.
Blade
25' Long x 2" Wide, .063". 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, 32,000 psi. max. Machine equipped with automatic blade break/blade stall shut-off switch.
Upper Blade Guide Arm
Hydraulically positioned and locking, controlled by selector switch at operator's station.
Vises
Hydraulic, full stroking with 12" High x 20" Wide 60° faceplates. Optional variable vise pressure available. An optional second machine vise is available.
Coolant System
Built-in with Flood system, available with Drop Lubrication system (requires compressed air connection), including chip pan with manual hand crank type chip conveyor. A Flushing hose is included to wash away chips from hard to reach places reducing clean-up time.
Work-Rest Rollers
Two turned ball bearing rollers, one on the entry side and one on the discharge side of the machine bed.
Automatic Bar Feed
The Automatic Bar Feed design features a 72" stroke length with indexing speeds of up to 32 ft./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.
Amada Marvel PC3 Programmable Control
Provides a Programmable Logic Control with an 12" 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, angle 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.
Standard Left-To-Right Work Entry
Opposite Hand or Right-to-Left work entry available.
