Additional Information


18" x 18", 18" round. Table Height: 27"
1-1/2" x .050" x 15'4"
Blade Tension
Hydraulically controlled tension (30,000 psi) provides consistent square cutting accuracy. The motion detector will shut the machine off should the blade break or stall.
Speed Range
70 - 330 SFPM variable through a frequency inverter drive and heavy-duty worm gear transmission. The broad speed range allows for optimum cutting of a large spectrum of materials.
Hydraulic Down Feed
Feed rate and down pressure can be controlled independently for fast, accurate cutting. Setup is made easy through the color-coded dial allowing the operator to select the optimum setting for the type of material being cut. Both settings are made at the operator's station.
Hydraulic Shuttle Feed
Length settings of 0 - 20" are accomplished with simple programming at the operator's touch screen. The shuttle comes to positive stops at both ends of the index, assuring cutoff length accuracy, reducing material loss. Repeatability is ± .005 per index.
Blade Drive: 7-1/2 H.P., Hydraulic Pump Motor: 2 H.P., Coolant Pump Motor: 1/4 H.P. - All motors are dual voltage, choose 230 or 460 Volts, 3 ph. 60 Hz.
Operator's Control Panel
Conveniently mounted on the left hand side of the machine and offers full control of all machine functions such as; Vises, Blade Speed, Saw Frame, Bundle Clamping, Parts Counter, Shuttle Advance & Retract, Coolant and Work Light.
EPC Programmable Control
Conveniently located on the operator's control panel, this touch screen control allows the operator to program and store up to nine jobs. Inputs include Part Lengths from 0 to 400" and Number of Pieces to be cut. The Blade Speed is displayed on and set using the touch screen, but is not stored in memory. The Automatic Piece counter stops each job when the pre-set number of cuts has been made. The control provides the option of running up to 20 jobs consecutively.
Out-of-Stock Switch
The machine will shut off automatically when material is no longer present in the rear vise jaws, allowing for truly automatic operation.
Blade Guides
The combination roller bearing and carbide blade guides reduce heat and blade stress providing longer blade life and accuracies of ± .002 per inch of cut material. Large anti-vibration rollers help to increase blade life.
Fast Approach
Work height is automatically set allowing the head to rise just enough to clear the work piece, reducing cycle time and allowing for faster cutting performance.
Chip Brush
Powered from the main drive shaft of the saw, the brush changes speed along with the blade to assure that chips are being removed from each gullet of the blade, improving cutting performance and blade life.
Full Stroking Hydraulic Vise Jaws
The Front Vise jaws are split to reduce the remnant to as little as 3". The split vise jaws also help to reduce burrs left on the material and are ideal for bundle cutting. Holding the work piece on both sides of the blade reduces blade vibration, providing more accurate cuts and longer blade life.
Rear Vise
The rear vise jaw floats hydraulically to accommodate crooked stock assuring straight, accurate cuts.
Work Light
Positioned directly over the work area to provide better illumination of the cutting area, the work light can be turned on and off independently from the operator's control panel.


Hydraulic Hold-downs
The nesting fixtures for vertical clamping are designed for high-production multiple cutting.  Vertically mounted hydraulic clamps located on each vise jaw apply downward pressure to hold multiple bar work or structural shapes.  
Variable Vise Pressure
Hydraulic clamping pressure to the work holding jaws can be adjusted as required to hold solid or thin wall material, allowing the piece to be held securely and without distortion.
Automatic Chip Removal
The chip auger rotating in the coolant return removes chips quickly and efficiently, freeing the operator to perform more productive operations.  Coolant is allowed to drain back to the tank before the chips are removed from the machine.
Free Standing Control Console
Replaces standard control console mounted to machine base with a free standing pedestal and 6’ flexible electrical and hydraulic lines (Special Factory Order only).

Material Handling

First Section Roller Table
Table is constructed from 4” x 5.4 lb. Channel with ten 2.5” diameter ball bearing rollers on 6” centers.
