The PMI Panther H-500S is a dual-column, horizontal bandsaw with fully automatic operation. It comes standard with an NC Control and a user-friendly touchscreen. The touchscreen control allows for easy job setup and access to diagnostic information. The feed rate and material indexing are servo-controlled. Both systems have a servo motor with an encoder, servo drive, and ball screw. The feed rate is entered into the touchscreen control so that the operator can set a precise cutting rate. By fully controlling the feed rate, the machine can run at higher cutting rates by utilizing carbide-tipped saw blades on carbon or hard-to-cut materials. The indexing shuttle vise is driven by a servo providing faster material indexing and more accurate cut lengths.
The H-500S has a round sawing capacity of 20”. It uses a 2” wide band saw blade, weighs a little over 10,000 lbs., and is built to cut large sections of material. The machine’s heavy-duty construction, servo-controlled cutting rate, 22 HP Saw Motor, and easy-to-use control make it the ideal machine for any shop cutting larger bars.
