Tube Cutting Saw BTS 460 NC

High speed sawing of bent tubes with carbide blades

The BTS 460 NC is a carbide circular saw specially designed for sawing curved tubes such as mufflers, hydroforming or exhaust pipes. Standardised mounts and their flat material table enable individual workpiece fixtures to be accepted. The saw entry and exit point can be freely adjusted accordingly. The standard two-hand operation allows comfortable and safe working without disturbing mechanical guards.

The heart of the BTS 460 NC is the high-performance sawing unit from the HCS series and powerful servo axes for saw feed and material clamping. This overall concept offers a powerful and low-vibration sawing process, which ensures a good cutting surface, long saw blade life and a long service life of the saw.

Features of the tube cutting saw BTS 460 NC

  • Servo-driven workpiece clamping
    guarantees process-reliable and repeatable clamping of materials of any shape and wall thickness. Clamping force and clamping travel can be optimally adjusted for each fixture by means of the servo axis.

  • Identification of the fixture via RFID (option)
    A quick change of the fixture is guaranteed by the use of RFID technology. The tube cutting saw automatically recognises the fixture used and sets all the parameters of the saw automatically.

  • Mounting for part-specific fixtures
    The material table is flat. Part-specific fixtures can be installed and exchanged quickly and easily on this table. In combination with these, a safe sawing process from simple to complex geometries can be guaranteed.

  • Two-hand operation
    The standard two-hand operation allows comfortable and safe working without disturbing mechanical guards.

  • Micro spray system
    When sawing profiles, pipes and solid material, the standard minimum quantity lubrication system delivers the best results. The saw blade is constantly moistened with cutting oil via a nozzle. This guarantees a long tool life and a clean working environment.

  • Sturdy machine base
    The heavy machine stand and the vibration-damping cast iron components made by Behringer ensure a low-vibration sawing process and thus an increase in tool life.

  • Stable, low-vibration gearbox
    The heart of the saw unit is the backlash-free pretensioned worm gear drive from our own production. It ensures low-vibration running of the saw blade and saw spindle, which has a positive influence on the cutting surface and service life.

  • Simple, intuitive control
    Everything in view. Everything under control. The control system is self-explanatory, simple, avoids operating errors and allows quick navigation in the various programmes.

  • Optimum chip flow
    also when sawing tubes and hollow profiles due to the saw feed from bottom up.

  • Adjustable saw entry and exit point
    The entry and exit point of the tube cutting saw to the material can be freely adjusted for the use of various fixtures.

  • HSS and carbide saw blades
    The saw is suitable for the economical use of carbide and HSS saw blades.
