Precision sawing: Mind the miter

Miter cutting tube and other workpieces can be extremely critical, especially when dealing with frameworks and other large assemblies. One seemingly small error in a miter cut can throw a large assembly significantly out of tolerance. This is where automation and precision control in sawing come into play.

Sorting Out Aluminum Sawing

As aluminum costs drop, the material is finding new applications that push the envelope on how much of this metal can be used in the structural makeup of a vehicle — with no end in sight. After aluminum is forged, cutting is one of the first stages done for fabrication. One important aspect to consider is cutting methodology. While aluminum is lightweight and comparatively easier to cut than exotic alloys, it still presents its share of challenges, such as gumminess, chip packing and deburring. However, with the right equipment, aluminum can be very efficiently sawn via two methods: circular sawing or band sawing.

Behringer HBE Saw Delivers Increased Throughput for Spanco

Behringer Saws has announced it recently shipped an HBE 321A Dynamic Horizontal Bandsaw to Spanco Inc., located in Morgantown, PA. Spanco, a manufacturer of overhead workstation cranes, took delivery in April 2015 of the HBE, which the company uses to saw tube sections for fabricating cranes. "The Behringer HBE Saw has already increased throughput in our work center by roughly 20% due to faster cycle times and reduced time required for maintenance. It has also substantially improved the accuracy of our cuts,” said Mr. Chris Moke, Production Manager at Spanco.

Manufacturer Brings Cut Work In-House, Reduces Scrap and Saves Time with Cost-Effective Band Saw

F-1 Firearms LLC manufactures tactical weapons and components for military and law enforcement as well as semi-automatic sporting/hunting rifles for commercial use. To slice through raw material such as aluminum billets and hollowed out round bar stock the company was outsourcing its cut work, but the use of local suppliers could sometimes make it challenging to control its inventory. To improve operational costs and keep the stocking requirements from bottlenecking the firearm maker’s growing output, it sought out a new sawing system and eventually chose a Behringer HBE Dynamic Series horizontal band saw.

New Behringer Bandsaw Produces World’s Fastest Material Removal Rate

Behringer Saws has introduced the HBM 500SC, an ultra-fast cutting automatic horizontal bandsaw capable of removing over 70 square inches of material per minute. The saw can cut a broad range of materials, from carbon steels to tool steels, stainless and high-alloy steels, nearly four times faster than conventional bandsaws. Sawing speed is due in part to a rugged, cast iron saw frame engineered to channel the buildup of forces away from the work area and a high-efficiency dual conveyor chip removal system.

Oilfield Pump Manufacturer Sees Dramatic Improvement in Sawing Efficiencies

When Chad Tomlinson saw a Behringer horizontal bandsaw in operation at the 2012 IMTS show in Chicago, IL, he knew it was the answer to his cutting problems. Tomlinson is the branch manager of Tri-Alta Oilfield Industries Ltd., in Edmonton, AB, a manufacturer of electrical submersible and sucker rod pumps for the oilfield industry. “The Behringer saw was integrated with a material handling system and when I saw how it worked, I was sold on it.” In 2013 Tri-Alta purchased a Behringer HBP-263A horizontal bandsaw equipped with an automatic chip conveyor, a hydraulic vertical bundle clamping system, an inclined bar loading magazine, and an automatic bar change function. Since installation, the Behringer saw at Tri-Alta's facility has reduced human error by 80%, cut scrap rates significantly and reduced man hours by half.

Tips on Choosing the Right Saw for Cutting Structural Tube

Cutting ASTM A500 structural steel tube can be done more efficiently and cost-effectively by finding the saw that fits your shop floor production realities. It all starts with choosing either a band saw or a circular cold saw. Structural steel tube is used in a variety of applications because of its uniform and tight tolerances, high strength-to-weight ratio, and general ease of fabrication. However, before any of these operations are undertaken, a fabricator has to cut the tube to length. That's why fast, cost-effective, and accurate cutting of the tubes is a critical component in the timely turnaround and ultimate quality of the fabricated parts or assemblies.
