Swing-Away Control Console

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

Touch Screen Controls

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.

Manual/Semi-Auto Cut Screen

The cut screen allows the operator to set the height/blade speed, and to control vising options, to set up for a manual or semi-automatic cut. The cut watcher is also set from this screen.

Control Panel

The control panel allows for quick I.O. and system operation to calibrate the encoders and help diagnose a possible problem with operation of the saw.

Help Files

Help files are available to assist in operating the saw. These include: a blade symptom chart, length converter, basic calculator, saw safety section, and blade change instructions.

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.

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.

Main Vide

A full-stroking main vise clamps material and holds the material in place to ensure accurate cuts. The clamping pressure is easily adjusted to clamp various materials.

24" Solid Discharge Table

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

36" Roller Load Table w/ Filler Plates

A 36" long roller load table with filler plates is provided on the in-feed side of the saw for handling before the cut.

Adjustable Blade Speed

Blade speed can be adjusted with an infinitely variable speed drive, which allows the user to adjust blade speed's surface feet per minute which is set and adjusted from the Touch Screen.

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.

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.

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.

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 Safety Lockout Key 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 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 H220HM-DC-CTS offers these optional upgrade items:

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.

An optional roller discharge table provides easier handling after the cut. The table is 24" in length and is fully coolant panned. (In Lieu of Solid Discharge Table)

An Optional Outboard Vise on the Discharge helps with clamping of material.

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

The optional hydraulic computer controlled traverse, or HCCT, controls the feed rate and cutting force to maintain the optimum cutting rate.

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