 Behringer Series HBM 500SCBehringer Saws, Inc., Morgantown, Pa., offers the Behringer Series HBM 500SC, a fast-cutting automatic horizontal band saw capable of removing over 70 square inches per minute of material. The saw, with a 19.6-by-19.6 inch maximum cutting capacity, can cut a broad range of materials, from carbon steels to tool steels, stainless and high-alloy steels, nearly four times faster than conventional band saws, the company claims.
The Behringer HBM 500SC is especially beneficial for high-speed cutting applications with carbide-tipped blades sawing high-alloy materials. A heavy-duty gearbox, 35 HP high-output drive motor, rigid cast iron frame, and dynamically re-engineered design substantially reduce vibration and promote enhanced speed and precision. Band guides are fitted with nozzles that spray coolant directly into the kerf, while a high-volume coolant pump keeps blades and materials cool during high-speed cutting. Blade downfeed is ball-screw driven, providing the controlled application of downfeed pressure for precise, accurate blade movement.This power/pressure balance assures the material feed rate is always maximized without overloading the blade, resulting in exceptionally long blade life, the company says.

To address high stock removal rates, two electrically powered self-adjusting chip brushes clean the blade during operation. In addition, chips fall into a funnel flume, guided to a dual conveyor in the machine bed, allowing operators to achieve and maintain high productivity levels without stopping to manually clear the work area. The saw also features automatic guide arm adjustment and hydraulic blade tensioning.
