Behringer, a world-class provider of bandsawing machines, circular cold saws and structural fabricating equipment, has added more standard features to its HBE Dynamic Series horizontal bandsaws without increasing selling price. Already economically priced for budget-smart companies, HBE saws now include automatic precision servo down feed control, blade protection sensor technology and other standard features designed to improve cutting rates and throughput, and to reduce downtime.

Owing to improvements in manufacturing methods and advanced component design, Behringer engineers successfully re-engineered the HBE series of saws making a few of the more popular options standard features – at no extra cost. β€œOne of the most popular options is the servo-driven automatic precision down feed control,” said Joe Suydam, Behringer sales and marketing associate. A sensor-driven cutting pressure control is located at the back of the saw blade. Suydam explained that positioning the sensor directly at the saw blade assures that pressure adjustments are fast and accurate. The control automatically adjusts blade pressure to create the optimum balance between feed rate and blade pressure. “This results in optimum cutting speed with a maximum chip load, and at the same time prolongs blade life,” said Suydam.

Another popular option now included as standard on HBE Series saws is automatic feed control (AFC). The Behringer AFC feature automatically adjusts cutting parameters such as blade speed and downfeed rate to the material grade and shape. This permits operators to create flexible material feed programs leveraging cutting data based on specific material grade. Additionally, a fault/alert history may be viewed at any time by the operator. The detailed information displayed in plain text is useful for both planning and analysis of past projects.

Designed for efficiency in high production metal cutting operations, HBE Dynamic Series horizontal bandsaws are designed to meet a broad range of applications in the steel trade, mechanical engineering, tool making and metalworking shops. The saws utilize a high torque, frequency-controlled blade drive motor. Specialized gearing in the drive results in low power consumption yet produces the blade power and speed needed for fast cutting and peak throughput rates.

As with all Behringer bandsaws, the cast iron dual column construction of the HBE saw frame provides the rigidity needed to eliminate stress, reduce vibrations and enhance torsion resistance during cutting. Two linear ways and four ball slides facilitate precise and accurate vertical movement of the blade. Cutting accuracy is further enhanced by the horizontal band arrangement and hydraulically tensioned, double-sided linear guide bearings for the band wheels.

The HBE Dynamic saw is available in four models – 261A, 321A, 411A and 511A. The HBE-261A does not include the standard features upgrade. HBE cutting range is from 10.2″ to 20.0″ diameter for round stock and from 11.8″ x 10.2″ up to 20.0″ x 20.0″ for flat stock. Stroke length is 25.6″ with exceptional tolerances controlled by an electrically powered ball screw driven material feed gripper. Blade speed ranges from 50-350 ft/min.
