Automatic Vertical Plate Saw

The LPS Series saws are rugged, highly efficient and ideal for steel service centers, mold/tool and die making operations and more.

Behringer Saws has introduced a line of automatic vertical plate saws. The LPS Series heavy duty electronically controlled production plate saws enable fast, accurate, automated cutting of aluminum, low alloy and high tensile strength solid materials.

The Behringer LPS series features a main frame with a feeding mechanism that provides automatic positioning of plates or blocks via two parallel servo-driven units that feed the material to the blade. The feeding mechanism and roller conveyors are mounted on sectional inner and outer tables with hardened material supports at the cutting zone. Paired, adjustable hydraulic clamps provide secure workholding during sawing, and a laser measurement system on the saw frame detects work piece ends for automated operation. The LPS series’ electronically controlled, infinitely variable downfeed rate monitors cutting force, which is displayed on the operator control panel.

The LPS series is designed with a stress-free solid cast C-frame design guided on linear rails and bearings. Depending on the model, two or three cast Meehanite band wheels provide reliable, vibration-free guidance and easy, fast blade changeovers. The LPS saws also deliver fully automatic hydraulic blade tensioning. For convenient chip removal, the saws also feature an automatic, wheel-mounted chip conveyor, equipped with a separate motor.

“The LPS Series saws are rugged, highly efficient and ideal for steel service centers, mold/ tool and die making operations and more, offering the lowest total cost of ownership available for plate and block sawing,” said Mr. Richard Klipp, President of Behringer Saws, Inc.

A range of options are available on the LPS Series, including the ability to automatically rotate the blade 90 degrees to saw rectangular or square sections out of the plate or block, in addition to standard straight cut-off work.

The Behringer LPS Series Automatic Plate Saws are available in numerous models ranging in cutting capacities up to 236.2” in length, 62.9” in width, and 47.2” in height, and weigh as much as 58,000 pounds.
