28" x 32", 28" Round, 11.2" min. clamp width.
2" x 26' 3" x .063"
Heavy Duty Construction
The saw frame is constructed of 3/4" plate stock with a 12" square tube running across its top to prevent deflection when the blade is put under tension.
Blade Tension
Hydraulically controlled tension (40,000 psi) provides consistent square cutting accuracy. The motion detector will shut the machine off should a blade break or stall.
Speed Range
Blade speeds are adjustable form 50 - 250 SFPM, infinitely variable through a frequency inverter drive and heavy-duty worm gear transmission. The broad speed range allows for optimum cutting of a large spectrum of materials. A read out at the operator's touch screen assures accurate speed setting.
Hydraulic Shutle Feed
Length settings of 0 - 20" are accomplished through the EPC programmable control. The shuttle comes to positive stops at both ends of the index, assuring cutoff length accuracy, reducing material loss. Repeatability is ± .005 per index.
EPC Programmable Control
Conveniently located on the operator's control panel, this touch screen control allows the operator to program and store up to nine jobs. Inputs include part length from 0 to 400" and number of pieces to be cut. The blade speed is displayed on and set using the touch screen, but is not stored in memory. The Automatic Piece Counter stops each job when the pre-set number of cuts has been made. The control provides the option of running up to 20 jobs consecutively.
Hydraulic Down Feed
Feed rate and pressure can be controlled independently for fast, accurate cutting. Setup is made easy through the color coded dial allowing the operator to select the best setting for the type of material being cut.
Blade Drive: 10 H.P., Hydraulic Pump Motor: 3 H.P., Coolant Pump Motor: 1/4 H.P.
Out-of-Stock Switch
The machine will shut off automatically when material is no longer present in the rear vise jaws, allowing for truly automatic operation.
Blade Guides
Hydraulic controlled solid carbide blade guides are actuated when the machine's hydraulic system is started to assure the blade is held taut for fast, accurate cuts. Cast iron guide arms are positioned automatically when the machine vise jaw is set in position.
Chip Brush
Powered from the main drive shaft of the saw, the brush changes speed along with the blade to assure that chips are being removed from each gullet of the blade, improving cutting performance.
Fast Approach
Work height is automatically set allowing the head to raise just enough to clear the work piece, reducing cycle time and allowing for faster cutting performance.
Cut Indicator Light
The cut line indicator light is positioned on the dovetail above the blade and casts a shadow indicating the true cut line; aids in set-up and assures first cut accuracy.
Vise Jaws
Hydraulic, full stroke for ease of setup. Available with variable vise pressure for thin wall material. The rear hydraulic shuttle vise floats to accommodate the cutting of crooked material. Remnant length of 13.75". Vise height is 14.37".
Weight Capacity
The machine's capacity is 30,000 lbs. allowing cutting of solids and billets to the machine's max. capacity.
