Saw Head Frame
The rigid 'C' section frame carries the mountings for the
two band wheels, heavy duty worm drive gear reducer, the band drive motor and saw guide arm mounting
Band Wheels & Drive System
The band wheels are cast iron for long, productive life.
The deflection free 1.38 inch (35 mm.) wheel spindles ensure the wheels run true regardless of tension
stress or cutting loads. The spindle assemblies incorporate tapered roller bearings for greater rigidity
and long service life. The wheel tracks the blade so that the back of the band is contacts the wheel
flanges to support the band. The drive motor is coupled to the transmission through a variable speed
Drive Wheel Transmission
The drive wheel transmission is designed and built by
Amada to provide high efficiency speed reduction, which requires no external cooling, to deliver more power
to the large diameter drive shaft. This shaft ensures that this developed torque is transferred to the
blade with no strobing, enabling the machine to efficiently cut high alloys as well as free machining
Pressure/Flow Feed Control
The independent pressure and flow controls in series
ensure the optimum cutting rate can be obtained regardless of section or alloy being cut. The pressure
control determines the cutting force applied to the blade and the flow control sets the maximum fall rate
of the head. For example for difficult to machine materials the pressure is set higher than free machining
alloys and the flow is set lower, as shown on the escutcheons above the above the control knobs.
Idler Wheel Motion Detector
The wheel motion detector will turn off the blade drive
in the case where a blade breaks or is jammed in the work piece. This feature also prevents premature wear
on the drive wheel from a stalled band.
Automatic, Powered Chip Conveyor
The electrically powered chip conveyor auger
automatically removes the saw chips from the saw while draining the cutting fluid back into the fluid
reservoir. The automatic chip conveyor greatly reduces cleanup time and enables the machine to run longer
without operator cleanup.
The machine control has the capability to make up to 9
index passes giving a maximum cut length of 141.7 in. (3,600 mm.) in automatic.
Split Front Vise
The work holding vise is split so that it clamps the work
piece on both sides of the cutting plane. This additional support in front of the cutting plane minimizes
the burr on the cut pieces.
