Dual-Column Automatic Band Saw
The ABS 320C is a fully automated band saw with a twin-column guide system. The automatic feed system uses a powered pinch roller system with ¾-hp hydraulic motor for automated, rapid material advancement. Designed with a limit switch to cut lengths accurately, this machine is also equipped with a programmable part counter for exact productivity and reduced material waste as well as an automatic height adjustment to limit space between the blade and the material so no time is wasted “cutting air,” the company says.
The saw frame feed has an infinitely variable cutting speed from 65 to 330 ft/min. and a main motor drive rating of 5 hp. There is also rigid, dual-column guide for parallel cuts, a torque-resistant weldment and a cutting capacity of 13.75" × 12.5".
The band saw uses helical gears and a hydraulic cylinder. These gears are said to ensure quality service, a long tool life and low overall maintenance, while large cylinder dimensions ensure continuous, consistent and quiet operation. Plus, the machine incorporates an automatic shut-down when the blade breaks.
Standard equipment includes a coolant system with three nozzles, a saw blade cleaner brush, a 48" feed roller table with linear stop and an operator’s manual.
