Circular Cold Saws

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.

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.

Carbide Circular Cold Saw Now with Fully Automated Inclined Magazine

Behringer, a world-class provider of bandsawing machines, circular cold saws and structural fabricating equipment, has added an automated inclined magazine to its HCS-90E carbide circular cold saw. The newly packaged HCS-90E now meets high production demands while minimizing the need for operator attendance. "Behringer has designed the HCS-90E saw for customers that literally need bulk cutting output in the thousands of pieces per day range," said Joe Suydam, Behringer sales and marketing associate. A fully automatic high-performance circular cold saw, the HCS-90E is designed for cutting ferrous material at 90 degrees in maximum yield applications. High throughput performance is facilitated by the saw's inclined magazine which holds up to 3500 pounds of 12' long material. An optional extension expands material capacity to 20' long pieces and load capacity to 5250 pounds. Once loaded with bundles, the machine will run without interruption, cutting pre-programmed lengths, ejecting trim and remnants and channeling good cut pieces to a holding bin. This functionality is fully automatic without requiring operator standby.

How Turbulator Company Used a Behringer Eisele Saw to Meet Customer Demands and Reduce Capital Equipment Inventory

When your customers are operating oil drilling rigs, you can rest assured orders are going to be of two types: rush and super rush. Quality products notwithstanding, the successful suppliers are those who can deliver on time and help stay on track with, or keep ahead of incredibly tight production schedules. Turbulator Company (Oklahoma City, OK) is one of the can-do suppliers in this category who has established a reputation for meeting critical customer deadlines. Turbulator recently acquired a Behringer Eisele HCS 160 carbide circular cold saw. The saw is used for high speed cutting of metal bar stock to make parts for the products Turbulator Company sells. A single Behringer Eisele HCS 160 circular saw has replaced two brand-name bandsaws and has helped Turbulator stay on the fast track to success.

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.

New Carbide Circular Saw Features Multi-fluid Cooling System — Faster Cutting, No Heat Generation

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.
