With the latest automatic machine from its HBE series, Behringer says it has come up with a way of combining the benefits of high-performance machines for one-off sawing tasks, with the solid, tried and tested characteristics of a classic mitre saw. High cutting outputs, simple handling and precise angular cuts are said to be among the key attributes of the new Behringer HBE320-523GA mitre-cutting bandsaw.
With a cutting range on flat materials of 520 x 320 mm, and bilateral mitre cuts of 45° (and up to 30° on the left), the saw has many features in common with the HBE Dynamic series. The guidance system in its torsionally rigid gantry design and bilateral band wheel bearings are intended to ensure quiet running and precise cuts. The band-guiding components are made of vibration-damping grey cast iron, which has a positive impact on the quality of the cut surface, and makes for longer blade life, says the company. Electrically powered chip brushes clean the saw blade of adhering chips synchronously with the saw drive system.
The inclined position of the band wheels helps prolong the life of bandsaw blades by reducing fatigue due to cyclical bending. A fully automatic height adjustment facility for the saw frame, and lowering of the saw when in rapid traverse, help cut non-productive time to a minimum.
The inclined position of the bandsaw blade allows components such as girders, angled steel and U-profiles, as well as hollow rectangular profiles, to be sawn at higher speed and with less burr.
