Band Saw’s Feed System Reduces Cycle Time

The Danobat iDS4A automatic band saw, available from Pat Mooney Saws, can cut a range of materials including high-nickel alloys, stainless steel, carbon alloys and aluminum.

The Danobat iDS4A automatic band saw, available from Pat Mooney Saws, can cut a range of materials including high-nickel alloys, stainless steel, carbon alloys and aluminum. The saw is equipped with Pat Mooney’s “zone cut technology” said to enable faster cut times without premature wear on the saw blades. The machine’s twin columns are filled with polymer concrete to absorb vibration, enhancing cutting performance and blade life. Blade dimensions measure 233.07" × 1.5" × 0.050", and blade speed ranges from 50 to 450 fpm.

The blade is guided by a combination of bearings and carbide pads. When the machine cuts, the moving arm is locked in position with multiple hydraulic cylinders to ensure maximum rigidity. Feeding of material by the moving vise is incremental, eliminating the need for the feeding vise to continuously move to the preset feeding position and resulting in reduced cycle time, higher productivity and longer part life.
