Band Saw Material Feed Gripper Morgantown, PA (September 8, 2004) – In a move designed to make cuts even more accurate than before, Behringer Saws, Inc., has announced that its most popular models of automatic bandsawing machines will now come with a heavy duty electric ball screw driven incremental material feed gripper without an increase to the base price of the machines.

Unlike those found on competitive bandsaws, this durable and high quality electric ball screw is designed to provide enhanced material positioning to improve accuracy during the cut and eliminate backlash following the cut. The feed gripper is designed to grip and hold material forcefully with variable hydraulic clamping pressure, allowing operators to “fine-tune” the proper grip on the material to be cut. This feature will eliminate damage to tubing or softer materials.

This piece of equipment has a feed of up to 23.6″ with a single stroke and a multiple stroke maximum to 17.7′ for longer materials. Its floating gripper feed unit ensures safe feeding of bars and heavy forgings. A limit switch, mounted in a stationary jaw, signals out-of-material warnings when bar end is reached.

Behringer Saws, Inc. provides a wide variety of world-class quality automatic bandsawing, marking, punching, drilling and shearing systems and high performance circular cold saws to corporations, service centers, job shops and manufacturers throughout the world.
