Massive and Rigid Construction – NHC-80
Machine Weight 6,600 lbs
45 Degree Wedge Cutting Axis with Linear Rails allows blade guides fixed closer to bar and keeps chips away from the saw spindle/hub. The Ball Screw Servo Control of the Cutting Axis allows for independent Control of both the Blade RPM and the Chip Load per Tooth.
The precision Saw Blade Spindle and heavy Duty Gear Box Reduction with powder brake removes all backlash delivering outstanding life of the saw blade. The powered Chip Brush, that is centered on both sides of the cutting tip further extends the life of the saw blade, especially when cutting pipe and stainless steel. Secure Clamping of the work piece on both side of the saw blade, insuring maximum blade life, as well as superior surface finish.
The X-Axis will index the length or bar or tube to a precise cut length. This unit is ball screw driven and servo controlled. It travels guide rails. The sizer clamp has 3 positions to insure clean movement of the bar forward to the desired cut length. The unit also has a retract motion after each cut to insure long life of the saw blade.
Our PLC Logic and HMI Interface are an OPEN SYSTEM: The Mitsubishi PLC and HMI can be accessed by and communicate to other devices. The cutting job can be set up in moments by an operator. The control of the cut job is precise and can be entered directly or by using a material selection tab. The control of the saw will track the life of the saw blade in square area of metal removal & number of cuts. The unit also displays the AMP load of the saw blade. This AMP reading is an important and vital feedback to monitor saw blade performance. The PLC control also has troubleshooting capability via the HMI. Further, Pat Mooney can also provide Ethernet model for connect ability and data collection for remote service and management information.
NO GREASE FITTINGS on the machine. All vital functions are lubricated automatically by a central lube system. This system is monitored for use and will shut the machine down in the event of a lube fault or if the unit runs out of oil.
Machine is a near dry sawing unit. A micro drop metered system uses 1 to 3 drops per second to provide lubrication and long blade life. Lube is provided directly to the saw blade tip.
If Coolant level is too low, machine will fault and alert the operator.
Bundle Racks are available to support a 10,000 lb bundle. They can also be equipped with bundle holders to contain the bundle after the steel strapping is cut. This reduces stress on the operator when loading a bundle.
