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.

Manufacturer Brings Cut Work In-House, Reduces Scrap and Saves Time with Cost-Effective Band Saw

F-1 Firearms LLC manufactures tactical weapons and components for military and law enforcement as well as semi-automatic sporting/hunting rifles for commercial use. To slice through raw material such as aluminum billets and hollowed out round bar stock the company was outsourcing its cut work, but the use of local suppliers could sometimes make it challenging to control its inventory. To improve operational costs and keep the stocking requirements from bottlenecking the firearm maker’s growing output, it sought out a new sawing system and eventually chose a Behringer HBE Dynamic Series horizontal band saw.

New Behringer Bandsaw Produces World’s Fastest Material Removal Rate

Behringer Saws has introduced the HBM 500SC, an ultra-fast cutting automatic horizontal bandsaw capable of removing over 70 square inches of material per minute. The saw can cut a broad range of materials, from carbon steels to tool steels, stainless and high-alloy steels, nearly four times faster than conventional bandsaws. Sawing speed is due in part to a rugged, cast iron saw frame engineered to channel the buildup of forces away from the work area and a high-efficiency dual conveyor chip removal system.

Oilfield Pump Manufacturer Sees Dramatic Improvement in Sawing Efficiencies

When Chad Tomlinson saw a Behringer horizontal bandsaw in operation at the 2012 IMTS show in Chicago, IL, he knew it was the answer to his cutting problems. Tomlinson is the branch manager of Tri-Alta Oilfield Industries Ltd., in Edmonton, AB, a manufacturer of electrical submersible and sucker rod pumps for the oilfield industry. “The Behringer saw was integrated with a material handling system and when I saw how it worked, I was sold on it.” In 2013 Tri-Alta purchased a Behringer HBP-263A horizontal bandsaw equipped with an automatic chip conveyor, a hydraulic vertical bundle clamping system, an inclined bar loading magazine, and an automatic bar change function. Since installation, the Behringer saw at Tri-Alta's facility has reduced human error by 80%, cut scrap rates significantly and reduced man hours by half.

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.

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.

Sawing System Supports Goals for Zero Scrap and Defect-free Parts

CECA Forge, headquartered in Ripley, Mississippi is a market leader in impact extrusion, manufacturing oil field and rigging products, specialty items like fittings and ordnance as well as components for the automotive and furniture markets. Recently Mark Floyd, CECA general manager, chose to bring the company’s cutting operation in-house. “We were outsourcing the operation to two or three different suppliers in different states,” he says. “We got tired of not being able to control quality. We were experiencing high kerf loss on our material and costs were higher overall.” Floyd researched the market’s leading band saws and ultimately installed three Behringer HBP-360A fully automatic horizontal band saws with inclined material handling magazines in June 2013.

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.

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.
