Behringer offers the new HBP-610A band saw for cutting large pipes and solid materials up to 24 in. dia.
The cast-iron, dual-column design uses positive hydraulic downfeed with a heavy-duty gearbox and a high-horsepower motor. The solid-cast bow frame is designed to eliminate vibration and provide rigid support for blade tensioning. These design features combine to provide controlled application of downfeed power for precise blade movement and tight tolerances, according to the manufacturer.
The high-torque, frequency-controlled saw drive provides cutting speeds from 62 to 426 sq. ft./min. The downfeed power and saw blade pressure are monitored by an automatic pressure sensing system. Cutting pressure data is analyzed, and the system automatically makes blade pressure adjustments as needed to help ensure an optimum balance between feed rate and blade pressure.
