Machine Construction and Features
Machine Base – The machine base is designed and produced with electro-welded steel components for maximum rigidity and support. A chip removal auger and 30 US gallon coolant tank are built into the base. Leveling bolts are located at corners of the machine .

10 HP Motor – Heavy duty 2 stage gearbox and 10 HP motor, which is controlled by an AC inverter drive. Blade speed is easily adjusted from the control console and the wide range of available band speeds allows for efficient cutting of many types of material.

Blade Wheels – 27” high quality cast iron wheels with heavy-duty wheel & gearbox shaft bearings.

Blade Guides – Replaceable carbide insert guides housed in two heavy duty cast iron guide arms provide cut accuracy of / – .002” per linear inch of material and excellent vibration dampening. Saw guides are automatically set hydraulically. The idler side guide arm is mechanically connected to the front vise moveable jaw and moves in tandem with the opening and closing of the jaw. This provides proper positioning of the guide arm spacing, in relation to material width, at all times.

Vising – Full capacity, full stroking hydraulic vises with replaceable wear strips provide for efficient vise loading with minimal material vibration.

Powered Blade Brush – Hydraulically driven 3” blade brush keeps the blade gullets clean, helping to maximize blade performance and life.

Blade Tensioning – Hydraulic blade tensioning provides consistent automatic blade tension while allowing quick and easy blade changing.

Coolant System – A centrifugal pump immersed in the 30-gallon coolant reservoir delivers ample coolant flow through carbide faced and nozzle guides. Flow cocks are present for coolant quantity adjustment.

Work Light – A halogen work light provides substantial lighting over work piece / cutting area.

Blade Breakage Switch – If the blade breaks during operation the machine will be shut down.

Hydraulically Driven Chip Auger – Built into the base, an auger screw pulls chips from the base and discharges at side of machine.

Hydraulic System – A 3HP driven hydraulic pump supplies system pressure. The system pressure through 3-position directional valves controls all vising, head up/down, blade tension, saw guide tension, and guide arm and shuttle movement. The pump and motor assembly and hydraulic manifold complete with all function directional valves all swing out with the hydraulic compartment door for easy service access, and minimal downtime.

Hyd-Mech’s Direct Down feed– (DDF) Provides easy adjustment of both head feed rate and cutting pressure. Machine sawing chart provides proper blade speed, tooth pitch, feed rate and feed force recommendations. Saw head control includes fast approach control feature for quick set ups. Feed rate is displayed on PLC in linear inches per minute during the sawing operation via rotary encoder.

Electrical System – The electrical control components are housed in a cabinet at the left rear side of the machine. The operator manual switches and PLC control are conveniently located on a console in the front of the machine. Components and wiring are neatly laid out and labeled for easy troubleshooting.

Controls – Conveniently located in the front of the machine, to the right of the out feed table, the selector switches and pushbuttons allow the operator to manually control all machine functions including emergency stops. The Mitsubishi PLC 100 controls the Automatic cycle. The operator enters job information through the PLC interface keypad. The information required will be desired part length and quantity of pieces. Up to 99 different jobs can be entered into the PLC memory, and can be called up and performed at any time. Also, a job queue function allows up to 5 jobs to be picked from the memory, and run consecutively. Some unique features of the PLC100 control are blade chamber, which separates the cut part to allow for more back clearance (excellent for carbide blades); adjustable power down timer; coolant saver; trim cut on or off; automatic blade kerf compensation.

In Manual mode – The PLC display will give blade speed; feed rate and length system readout. A single part operation can also be performed while in the Manual mode. The operator simply enters the desired part length, presses the cycle start button, starts the blade, and the machine will index that length, cut it off and raise the head back up.
In Automatic mode – The PLC displays blade speed, feed rate, shuttle vise position, part length, quantity required, and number of pieces cut.
Blade Drive – The blade drive motor is controlled by a Mitsubishi AC inverter drive. Provides smooth operation and infinite adjustment from 40 to 300 sfm.


Full Capacity Overhead Bundling – Hydraulically powered overhead clamp that moves down on the material from above. Its downward (clamping) and upward (unclamping) movement are controlled and timed with the opening and closing of the side vise. Very effective, and necessary for bundle cutting various material shapes & sizes. Can also be effective in dampening of cutting vibration.

Out of Stock Switch – Mounted on the shuttle vise, when the vise closes with no material between its jaws, the machine hydraulics will shut down (The cut in progress at the time of the switch being tripped is finished before shut down occurs). This option allows the machine to be left unattended with no danger of the machine continuing to cycle with no material left.

Vertical Rollers – Two 3” diameter rollers mounted vertically at each side of the end of machines in feed conveyor. Assists in material alignment.

Variable Vise Pressure – Allows for adjustment of the clamping pressure of both vises. Recommended for thin wall tubing and other light material applications where standard vise pressure may deform the material

6º Canted Head – Recommended for cutting of larger beams, structural, and bundles of square tubing, positions the blade to approach the material on a 6 degree incline, allowing for more efficient cutting and improved blade life.

Mist Lubrication System – Air mist system providing blade lubrication and cooling. Alternative to standard flood system. Note: Ordering this option does note eliminate the standard flood coolant system.
