Machine Base - The machine base is designed and produced with electro-welded steel components for maximum rigidity and support. The saw head carriage is guided by high quality linear ways and bearings. A 20-gallon coolant tank is built into the base. Leveling bolts are located at corners of the machine.
Extended Head - longer head frame provides an additional 11” of height capacity.
7.5 HP Motor - Heavy-duty gearbox and 7.5 HP motor, which is controlled by an AC inverter drive. Blade speed is easily adjusted from the control console and the wide range of available band speeds allows for efficient cutting of many types of material.
Blade Drive - The blade drive motor is controlled by a Mitsubishi AC inverter drive. Provides smooth operation and infinite adjustment from 65 to 385 sfm.
Blade Wheels - High quality cast iron hardened wheels with heavy-duty wheel & gearbox shaft bearings.
Blade Guides - Replaceable carbide insert guides housed in two heavy duty cast iron guide arms provide cut accuracy of + / - .002” per linear inch of material and excellent vibration dampening. The hydraulically powered idler side guide arm allows for easy adjustment for proper guide arm spacing.
Powered Blade Brush - Driven off the blade drive wheel the 3” wire brush keeps the blade gullets clean, helping to maximize blade performance and life.
Blade Tensioning - Hydraulic blade tensioning provides consistent automatic blade tension while allowing quick and easy un-tensioning for blade changing
Coolant System - A centrifugal pump immersed in the 20-gallon coolant reservoir delivers ample coolant flow through carbide faced and nozzle guides. A flow cock is present for coolant quantity adjustment.
Hydraulic System - A 2HP driven hydraulic pump supplies system pressure. The system pressure through 3-position directional valves controls all vising, head swing, head advance/retract, blade tension, and guide arm movement. The pump and motor assembly and hydraulic manifold complete with all function directional valves all swing out with the hydraulic compartment door for easy service access, and minimal downtime.
Laser Light Projects a crisp line of laser light along the blade line. This feature can be used for fast length measurements or as a cut marker.
Hyd-Mech’s Direct Down feed- (DDF)
