Control Console

The Control Console is a free-standing console with 25' umbilical 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.

Powered Miter w/ Angle Readout

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

Computer Controlled Traverse

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.

Rotary Base Machine

The Rotary Base allows the saw to miter to 45° both directions, and to 60° Left (Forward), using the powered miter switch on the console.

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.

7° Permanent Arm Tilt

The saw arm has a 7° permanent arm tilt (blade cant), which has shown significant increases in blade life and performance, because this angle allows the blade to never be engaged in the full width of the material.

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.

Vises on Both Sides of the Blade

The saw has independent vising for clamping on both sides of the blade. Wear plates, on the vide and saw bed, are heavy-duty and easily replaceable.

The clamping pressure is easily adjusted to clamp various materials.

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.

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.

Carbide Blade Guides w/ lead In/lead Out Roller Guides

A blade guide system is composed of side and back guides, which are flat carbide inserts.

In addition to precision-ground flat carbides, roller guides are used to 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.

Emergency Stop & Other Safety Features

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.

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 HEM Saw WF190MRB-DC-CTS offers these optional upgrade items:

Input or Output Side. For material support, 4' long moveable tables for each side of the saw may be purchased as an option. The tables rotate or telescope out of the way when the saw base rotates.

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

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

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.
