Triad Metals International is one of the largest structural steel, tubing and mini mill distributors east of the Mississippi River. The company recently partnered with Behringer Saws to boost production and improve efficiency in steel cutting and processing operations. Triad uses three Behringer bandsaws for steel cutting: for large beam cutting the HBP 800/1204; for large bundle cutting the HBM-540A; and for automated miter cutting the HBP-310/403GA. After loading stock, the machines continually manage all processes including material feed, high efficiency cutting and disposal of remnants and chips. Using an extensive material handling system co-designed and completely fabricated by Behringer Saws, Triad significantly improved throughput by reducing the amount of handling of steel stock as it passed through various production processes.

New high production automatic bandsaw cuts bars/pipes with reduced vibration — results in smoother cut, more even surface finish
Behringer Saws has introduced the new powerful, high performance HBP-610A bandsaw for cutting large pipes and solid materials up to 24 inches in diameter. The saw frame is a cast iron, dual column design which utilizes positive hydraulic downfeed with a heavy-duty gearbox and a high horsepower motor. The solid cast bow frame is designed to eliminate vibration and provide rigid support for blade tensioning. These design features combine to provide controlled application of downfeed power resulting in precise, accurate movement of the blade and tight tolerances. Cutting accuracy is further enhanced by the horizontal band arrangement and hydraulically tensioned tungsten-carbide guides which provide excellent blade support.

What’s the Best Approach for Sawing Aluminum? Band Saws Have Emerged as a Possible Tool for This Challenging Cutting Job.
A recent study of more than 4000 manufacturing professionals revealed a growing interest in using lightweight fabrication materials. This was particularly true in the aerospace, defense and automotive markets. A main reason behind this is that companies are interested in reducing the weight of their products because less fuel is needed to power lighter weight aircraft and vehicles. Not surprisingly, aluminum has emerged as a hot contender as the metal of choice in the continued effort to reduce product weight. This is causing fabricators to reconsider how they approach sawing aluminum.
A Combined Horizontal and Mitering Band Saw Speeds Production, Saves Space, and Increases Capacity and Accuracy
Behringer customer, Aero Inc., a Michigan-based tube-bending and fabricating company, was experiencing an increase in orders that required mitering. Aero met customer needs and expanded its services with the Behringer HBP-310/403G/A automatic horizontal miter band saw. The saw combines the abilities of a horizontal band saw and a mitering band saw with automatic capability.
Behringer Saws has introduced the new HBP-510/1208G mitering bandsaw for precision high speed cutting of large structural beams and profiles. With a cutting range of 47.2" X 20.0", and a bilateral miter of 30 degrees off of 90 degrees on both left and right side, the new saw is designed to meet even the most stringent demands in construction industries and the steel trades. The wide cutting range allows for even large structural beams to be cut at a 45-degree angle.

Behringer, a world-class provider of bandsawing machines, circular cold saws and structural fabricating equipment, has introduced the new HBM800ALU high performance bandsaw for high speed cutting of aluminum and other non-ferrous materials. The HBM800ALU saw is fully automatic and features complete cutting capability utilizing either bi-metal or carbide-tipped saw blades. After loading stock, the machine continually manages all aspects of the process and provides real time cutting data which is displayed at the operator terminal.
The new Behringer HCS 150/160 MF saw is a high-performance carbide circular cold saw that uses multi-fluid cooling technology to prevent heat transfer to product during mass cutting applications. The new saw’s innovative flood coolant system facilitates increased throughput by enabling rapid cutting over longer periods of time with fewer interruptions due to heat build-up. A vortex air blowing system further enhances cutting temperature control to help maintain consistent production rates. The Vortex system is also particularly valuable to customers who have cutting applications that require the material to stay free of liquid.
Behringer Introduces “SC” Cutting Technology — Faster Cutting & Improved Productivity with Longer Blade Life
Behringer, a world-class provider of bandsawing machines, circular cold saws and structural fabricating equipment, has expanded its HBM series of high-performance bandsaws to include the new HBM-SC series.
