Dual Column, Heavy-Duty, Metal-Cutting Production Band Saw

Capacity: 30" W x 25" H
Blade: 2" x 23'0" x .063"
Motor: 20 HP

Swing-Away Control Console

The Control Console is located on the front of the saw, in a swing-away console, for operator convenience.

24" Roller Discharge Table

A standard Roller Discharge Table provides easier handling after the cut. The table is 24" in length and is fully coolant panned.

Full Stroking Main Vise

A Full-Stroking Main Vise clamps material at the turn of a switch, and holds the material in place to ensure accurate cuts. The clamping pressure is easily adjusted to clamp various materials.

Carbide Blade Guides

The Blade Guide System incorporates side and back blade guides that utilize carbide inserts for long wear, stability and maximum blade support.

Lead In/Lead Out Roller Guides

In addition to precision-ground flat carbides, roller guides are also used which reduce vibration when cutting hard materials.

Blade Brush

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.

Cut Watcher System

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.

Push Button Blade Speed

Blade speed can be adjusted with an infinitely variable speed drive from the console with push button controls. The blade speed is shown on the console with LED Readout.

Powered Guide Arm

The Powered Guide Arm provides optimum blade support as material size changes. The guide arm works in conjunction with the main vise to adjust automatically while holding the blade securely, providing straighter cuts and longer blade life.

Powered Blade Tension

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.

Adjustable Feed Rate & Cut Pressure

The saw arm Feed Rate can be adjusted from zero to 3 inches per second. Cutting pressure can be adjusted for effective metal removal rates.

Emergency Stop

The saw is equipped with a safety Emergency Stop cut-off switch. This allows the operator to closely monitor the cutting process and quickly stop it if needed.

Other Safety Features

The Lock Out - Tag Out is used to disable saw operation during maintenance.

The saw will automatically shut off if the blade breaks, shown by the Broken Blade Indicator.

The Panic Stop haults all automatic functions.

Built-In Flood Coolant System

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.

The HEM Saw H160LM-DC offers these optional upgrade items:

The Optional Computer Controlled Traverse, or CCT, controls the feed rate and cutting force to maintain the optimum cutting rate.

With the CCT option, a Material List is provided with the touch screen. The list includes the recommended blade speeds, cutting rates and blade pitch for the type and size of material. The data can then be transferred to a job and run automatically or manually.

An Optional Solid Discharge Table in lieu of rollers. The table is 24" in length and is fully coolant panned.

Main Vise. A Full Capacity Top Clamp can be added to the main vise for vertical clamping of structural shapes and when entire "mill bundles" are to be cut.

A Full Capacity Top Clamp can be added to the outboard vise for vertical clamping of structural shapes and when entire "mill bundles" are to be cut.

An Optional 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 Shadow Light uses a high intensity light that casts a shadow of the blade on1o the material to be cut, indicating the exact spot where the blade will enter the material.

A Laser Light indicates either above or below where the blade will enter the material for the 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.
