LPS-T Vertical Plate Saw

The LPS-T Vertical Plate Saw is a proven specialist machine for toolmaking, test cutting, small parts and blocks.

The new compact heavy duty plate saw LPS-T with vertical bandsaw blade is proving to be a resounding success. Behringer put its proven specialist machine for toolmaking, test cutting, small parts and blocks on the test stand and implemented a number of user-friendly variations. The new LPS-T vertical bandsawing machine is ideally equipped to meet the challenges of the future.

The LPS-T comes with a linear guided material table with a support surface which provides a cutting capacity of 50”in length, 24.4” in width and 24” in height. Flexible positioning and clamping of the material is achieved using T- slots in the table which enables optimum positioning of fixtures or clamps.

A new feature is the optional NC measuring device which significantly simplifies set-up processes. After entering the required cutting depth, the measuring device enables automatic positioning. The material can be rapidly placed and aligned, ensuring greater flexibility and higher precision during the day-to-day work of the machine.

Both the saw and the NC measuring device are controlled by an ergonomically designed and easy-to-operate BT65 touch control panel. The self-explanatory symbol-based menu system makes for faster familiarization of new operators and simplifies machine handling.

Saw feed in the LPS-T takes place using ball screws with servo drive. A cutting pressure control system links the servo feed to a sensitive cutting pressure regulation system. This produces a constant level of chip removal, overall higher cutting outputs than is possible using conventional systems and reliable overload protection of the saw blade. The result: reduced cutting costs due to longer blade life and improved accuracy and cut quality.

The LPS-T can run either bimetal or carbide saw blades, and is driven with a 5.4 HP drive motor and runs over large wear-proof band wheels. All blade guidance parts are made of vibration-proof grey cast iron. Bandsaw changeover has also now been made even easier, and can be completed in around two minutes without the aid of tools and by a single operator.

Electrically powered chip brushes arranged on both sides of the blade, clear the saw blade of chips synchronously to the blade speed – a substantial benefit when it comes to maximizing blade service life. The machine is standard with an emulsion cooling lubricant system, and an environmentally friendly micro-dispensing spray mist lubrication device is available as an option.
