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.

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.

Integrating Material Handling with Metal Cutting Technology for Improved Throughput Rates

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.
