According to the manufacturer, Behringer Eisele, it forms the ideal addition to its successful HCS volume cut series which covers a wide range of industrial applications at an appealing price.
The HCS 150 E is an ideal first step into high performance sawing technology with a rapid return on investment. Behringer says the model features all the premium grade components and technical refinements expected from its circular saws so reliability contributes to profitable cutting processes right from the outset.
The HCS 150 E is suitable for solid materials and pipes to a diameter of 150mm. The wide standard speed regulating range of 25 to 215rpm enables a broad field of applications even with the basic equipment set-up. The saw drive is based on the Behringer Eisele combination of a robust, zero-backlash, in-house manufactured worm gear unit and frequency-controlled 15kW main drive.
Together with the highly controllable servo drive of the feed rate axis and minimum quantity spray cooling unit, the system also offers sufficient adaptive capability for future developments in the saw blade and lubricant sectors.
An attractive benefit of the HCS 150 E is its capability to combine with proven feeding systems: bar loading magazines, flat magazines, bundle loading magazine, chain loading magazines and other variations.
Roller conveyors and grippers on the supply and removal side mean the HCS-system has real economic benefits. The material is loaded by a powered servo-motor ballscrew leading to exact and quick positioning of the feedstock. To avoid damage and scratches to the workpiece the supply unit is equipped with a controlled zero-edge which raises the material during the feed motion and moves it away from the fixed jaw.
Good accessibility over the complete machine optimises maintenance requirements. Large viewing windows on two sides ensure a clear view of the cutting process, and tool change doors on the face end mean that easy cleaning and machine maintenance can be carried out at any time.
Hazards of flying chips have been reduced in the interior of the machine so that it is kept almost chip-free with the option of a chip conveyor. This results in long cleaning cycles which in turn bring positive benefits for plant availability. Cleaning itself is simple, as attention has been paid during the design phase to avoid corners and locations that are difficult to clean.
