Automated inclined magazine added to carbide circular cold saw
Behringer has added an automated inclined magazine to its HCS-90E carbide circular cold saw. The saw now meets high-production demands while minimizing the need for operator attendance, the company states.
The fully automatic machine is designed for cutting ferrous material at 90 degrees in maximum-yield applications. High throughput performance is facilitated by the saw's inclined magazine, which holds up to 3,500 lbs. of 12-ft.-long material. An optional extension expands material capacity to 20-ft.-long pieces and load capacity to 5,250 lbs.
The saw is equipped with a PLC that permits programming the number of pieces to be cut, length, and discharge handling. Integrated sensor technology helps ensure almost nonstop throughput by detecting the leading and tail edge of the material being cut and automatically managing the feed rate.
