Behringer Saws

April 2013Behringer, a world class provider of bandsawing machines, circular cold saws and structural fabricating equipment, has introduced the new VMS 370A circular cold saw for precision straight and miter cutting of ferrous and non ferrous metals. The previously offered semi-automatic model required users to add a separate automatic feed unit. The new VMS 370A, however, is integrated with an automatic feeding unit to provide full automatic feeding functionality which saves on cycle time and assures efficient use of material. Programming the length of cut and number of pieces is enabled by the control unit keypad and LCD display.

The new circular cold saw has a 14.5” diameter blade and will cut at a rotational speed of up to 64 RPM. The VMS 370A cuts various shapes of material: round (.39” – 5.1”); square (.31” – 4.7”); and rectangular (.31” x .31” – 7.8” x 3.9”). To position the blade for mitering, the upper portion of the machine may be manually rotated. A smooth action bearing facilitates this process enhancing accurate angle adjustments. The material being cut remains stationary. Mitering range to the left is 45 degrees and 60 degrees to the right. Total miter range is 105 degrees with positive stops at 45 degrees in both directions.

“With a feed length of 31.5 inches per single stroke,” said Richard Klipp, Behringer president, “the automatic feed process is very efficient and will reduce wasted material.” Klipp also stated, “the material being cut is positioned by a ball screw driven gripper which promotes speed and accuracy.” Klipp explained that the gripper is mounted on a robust linear guide that is pre-tensioned to eliminate play and help assure a smooth, accurate feed.

The VMS 370A saw head traverses vertically on two square guides mounted to a cast iron frame. This design gives rigidity to the saw head permitting sustained feed rate control. Consistently high downfeed pressure is facilitated through enhanced blade control and this helps maintain production rates at desired levels. A vertically raised protective hood assures safe operation and provides quick change access for changing the saw blade.

A heavy-duty gearbox and two-speed pole changing 2.6/3.4 HP motor drives a hardened and ground worm gear and a helical gear for blade downfeed control. Smooth cutting for nearly all grades of metal is enhanced with a shock absorbing feature that lets operators keep steady, uniform pressure on the blade. Integrated into the machine base is a re-circulating flood coolant system. An optional micro-spraying system may be activated from the control panel. Removal of chips is fast and easy with a chip drawer.

Behringer also offers an extensive range of material handling systems. Engineers can work with customers to create complete metalworking systems which include input and output conveyors, cross transfers and lift/carry systems.
