Figure 1 and figure 2 show an automatic billet loading table to transfer bars to a saw. The saw will cut the required pieces and transfer the pieces to bins.
Each automatic saw system consists of a load table that can be loaded with 5 tons of billets from ɸ38 mm (1.5”) minimum and ɸ180 mm (7.0”) maximum mixed diameter bars. The shorter tables are used for 4m (12 ft.) long bars, the longer tables are used for 6 m (20 ft.) long bars.
The AMSAW 180P automatic circular blade carbide billet saw (Fig. 1) cuts very fast and uses hard coated, carbide-tipped one-way blades that have a maximum ɸ610 mm (24.0”) blade diameter. This saw is cost efficient and cuts with a good tool life.
The AMSAW-WAGNER automatic band saw (Fig. 2) cuts with bi-metal or carbide tipped bands. This saw cuts slower, but it is less expensive than the 180P. An additional benefit of the band saw is the larger capacity of 350 mm (14.0”) to allow cutting larger stock manually. The automatic load table is therefore enforced and larger billets of up to ɸ350 mm (14.0”) and 6m (20 ft.) length can be manually loaded directly on the power roller conveyor to feed the band saw.
Depending on the customers’ requirements and their budget, these automatic saw systems can be expanded with economical standard subassemblies to a sophistically operating saw system.
