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 information required for semi-automatic job. Other functions include system information, diagnostics and saw operation parameters.

Manual/Semi-Auto Cut Screen

The cut screen allows the operator to set the angle/blade speed and to control vising options to set up for a manual or semi-automatic cut. The arm traverse is also controlled 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: blade change instructions, safety guide and blade troubleshooting chart.

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.

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.

Electronic Controlled Traverse

The ECT, Electronic Controlled Traverse System, allows for complete control of cutting rate and cutting force during the cutting operation.

Powered Guide Arm

The Powered Moveable Guide Arm provides optimum blade support as material size changes. It quickly adjusts the guides that hold the blade securely, providing straighter cuts and longer blade life.

Power Tilt w/Angle Readout

The mitering capability is an easy adjustment powered from the Console with Angle Readout displayed on the touch screen. This allows the operator to change angles quickly and accurately

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.

Powered Blade Tension

The Powered Blade Tensioner maintains proper blade tension at all times during the cut, compensating for blade stretch. Changing blades on vertical saws are 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 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-tupe nozzle to flood the center of the cut. A wash-down hose is provided for saw clean up.

The HEM Saw VT120HM-60 CTS offers these optional upgrade items:

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.

An optional full-stroking second main vise is used for additional clamping and works in conjunction with the main clamping vise.

An optional Laser Light indicates either above or below where the blade will enter the material for the cut.

An optional Reduced Capacity Top Clamp is available for the main vise for extra clamping of material.

An Optional Swing-Away Top Clamp can be added to the main vise for vertical clamping of structural shapes and when entire "mill bundles" are to be cut.

Optional Power Raised Lift-Up Rollers, one on each side of the saw base, raise material up to easier move the material.

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.
