The Control Console is located on the front of the saw, in a swing-away console, for operator convenience.
The Touch Screen display provides easy-to-use menu navigation for programming and recalling automatic saved jobs, running a series of jobs, as well as manual functions and programming information required for each job. Other functions include memory storage for a job library, system information, diagnostics and saw operation parameters.
The Auto Run screen controls the Computer Controlled Feed system which makes programming and running a job in automatic easy. Any pre-saved job can be entered into the Auto Run, or the operator can program a job. Then quantity, length, height, width, and blade speed are then entered and transferred to the Auto Run. The informaton can then be saved as a job, and can be operated on the saw at any time.
Jobs can be programmed into the touch screen then saved with a job number to run at any time. Up to 999 jobs can be saved. The part length, height, width, and quantity are entered for the cut, and then transferred to run automatically. Blade speed, blade type, and cutting options are also set before transferring to run automatically.
A series of cuts for certain parts can be programmed, to be cut from the same bar stock, by entering up to 12 jobs that will be run in sequence. The sequence can be run up to 99 times by placing an amount into the "Reps" section. Up to 100 program series can be created and saved in the menu.
In Manual Run mode, the saw operator can make a single, semi-automatic cut without creating a program. The blade and various options can be controlled from the screen or the console.
The control panel allows for quick I.O. and system operaton to calibrate the encoders and help diagnose a possible problem with operation of the saw.
The patented Cut Watcher system monitors the cut for squareness to a pre-set deviation value. The system shuts down the saw when the pre-set value is exceeded. This is a must for production cutting.
Help files are available to assist in operating the saw. These include: a blade symptom chart, length convertor, basic calculator, saw safety section, and blade change instructions.
The saw arm Feed Rate can be adjusted from zero to 3 inches per second. Cutting pressure/force can be adjusted for effective metal removal rates.
The Automatic Bar Feed on the saw has a 0-34" feed stroke shuttle vise with multiple indexing to feed lengths automatically until the saw is out of stock or a pre-determined number of cuts have been made. The Material Jogging feature allows the operator to inch the material forward.
A standard 24" solid discharge table provides easier handling after the cut. The table is 24" in length and is fully coolant panned.
The saw has a full-stroking main and feed vise for clamping of materials. Vises are enclosed for added strength and to keep out chips and debris. Wear plates on the vise and saw bed are heavy-duty and easily replaceable. The clamping pressure is easily adjusted to clamp various materials.
The Blade Guide System incorporates side and back blade guides that utilize carbide inserts for long wear, stability and maximum blade support.
In addition to precision-ground flat carbides, Lead-In/Lead-Out roller guides are also used which reduce vibration when cutting hard materials.
The Powered Moveable Guide Arm provides optimum blade support as material size changes. It quickly adjusts the blade guides that hold the blade securely, providing straighter cuts and longer blade life.
A shaft-driven Blade Brush is standard for positive removal of metal chips that lodge in the blade gullets. This system ensures a cleaner blade, more accurate cuts, and prolonged blade life.
The Powered Blade Tensioner maintains proper blade tension at all times during the cut, compensating for blade stretch. Changing blades on the saw is done in minutes with the use of the Powered Blade Tensioner.
The Chip Auger removes chips from the cutting area into an easy-to-empty container. Chips and coolant are automatically separated into two different containers.
The saw is equipped with a safety Emergency Stop cut-off switch, This allow the operator to closely monitor the cutting process and quickly stop it if needed.
The Safety Key-Lock is used to disable saw operation during maintenance.
The saw will automatically shut off if the blade breaks or is out of stock, shown by the Broken Blade or Out-of-Stock indicators.
The saw has a totally built-in coolant system with sealed coolant pump with coolant that is dispensed through a flex-tube nozzle to flood the center of the cut. A cutting fluid clean-up hose is provided for machine wash down.
An optional Laser Light indicates either above or below where the blade will enter the material for the cut.
Full Capacity Top Clamps can be added to the main and/or feed vise for vertical clamping of structural shapes and when entire "mill bundles" are to be cut.
The optional spray mist system lubricates the blade with a mist that is adjustable at a rate of 4 - 200 pulses per minute, pushing the mix of oil/air out of the delivery line to the nozzle.
With the optional Interlocking Vise Jaws, the feed vise wear plate is extended and interlocks into a modified main vise wear plate on the forward feed stroke. This helps to reduce the remnant length during the final cut of the material.
An optional 3rd Holding Vise on the Feed that works in conjunction with the main holding vise to assist in holding the material while it is being cut and also aids in aligning the material before it goes into the shuttle vise area.
5' or 10' optional idle roller tables with 12" centers are available for material handling. The tables are non-coolant panned and height adjustable to be "trued-in" with the saw. They are designed to move even the large bars with ease and accuracy.
