Machine Details & Specs:

Touch Screen Control
Easy operator input - with ability to store 20 unique jobs. Control is multi-lingual for today's diverse workforce. It will display error message when incorrect entry is made. Easy switching between imperial or metric units.

High Efficiency Transmission
High efficiency worm gear box built to decrease wear and transmit full torque to the saw blade. Double wide “V” belt to avoid slipping, transmitting full motor power to the transmission.

Hydraulic Chip Conveyor
Adjustable speed auger-style conveyor allows for coolant to drain from chips before extraction.

Coolant Thru Carbide Faced Saw Guide Inserts
Supplies coolant to the blade evenly before and after the cut creating straighter cuts and allowing longer blade life due to coolant being supplied at the tooth tip.

Efficiently Designed Hydraulic System
Engineered low pressure system allows for smoother and quieter operation which aids in longer component life and easy accessibility for maintenance.

Band Wheels
40 Degree lay back head design minimizes band twist reducing band fatigue. This lay back also allows for a smaller footprint. Flange cast steel wheels insure band tracking to prevent tooth set lost.

Multi-step Full Stroke Vises with Split Front Vise and Variable Vise Pressure
Shorter hydraulic cylinders reduce the overall footprint combining the advantage of rack and full stroke. Split front vice clamps on both sides of the blade reducing vibration and remnant length. Variable Vise Pressure will prevent distortion in thin wall tubing and extrusions.

Hydraulic Blade Tension
Automatically adjusts to correct tension eliminating possible error of over/under tightening the band for maximum cutting rates and band life.

Back-up Bearing/Inserts
Supports the back of the saw band allowing aiding in reducing vibration while cutting and increasing blade life.

Retractable Shuttle Type Index Vise
Both jaws retract when the vise is opened to accommodate the movement of crooked stock increasing accuracy and repeatability.

Magnetic Scale for Indexer
The scale which creates indexing accuracy is protected from dirt and oil build-up ensuring its long life.

Nesting Fixtures
Plug-n-play vertical hold-downs (top clamps) assemblies allows the operator to perform multiple piece cutting to increase productivity.
