Opening up new fields of business, extending the performance spectrum or replacing an old machine – these are among the most frequent reasons given by users for investing in an up-to-date, more efficient mitre sawing machine. With its newly presented model from the HBE series, BEHRINGER is offering the perfect way of combining the benefits of modern high-performance machines for individual sawing tasks with the robust and proven characteristics of a classical mitre saw. “We deliberately integrated various features from our BEHRINGER high-end models into this machine, raising the HBE320-523G into a class of its own – and all at an optimized cost-to-performance ratio”, says the company’s CEO Christian Behringer with confidence. High cutting outputs, simple handling and precise angular cuts are among the key attributes of the new BEHRINGER mitre-cutting bandsaw HBE320-523G.
With its extensive application spectrum, it reliably covers the wide-ranging requirements of metalworking workshops, the profile steel trade and machine builders. “Even small and medium-sized operations in these fields are reliant on their sawing machines dividing a wide range of different materials with optimum process reliability, to a high standard of quality and at high speed”, summarizes Christian Behringer. With a cutting range in flat materials of 520 x 320 mm, bilateral mitre cuts of 45° and up to 30° on the left, this machine is the perfect all-rounder for all kinds of sawing operations. “For reasons of cost and flexibility, profiles are generally purchased in starting lengths of up to 12 metres and then sawn to size”, he adds. The new mitre cutting bandsaw is easily able to cope with both structural steels and stainless steel profiles.
In design terms, the new mitre saw has many features in common with the HBE Dynamic series, which has already proved a resounding success. The guidance system in its torsionally rigid gantry design and the bilateral band wheel bearings ensure quiet running and precise cuts. The band guiding components are made of vibration-damping grey cast iron, which has a highly positive impact on the quality of the cut surface, but also makes for a longer blade life. Electrically powered chip brushes clean the saw blade of adhering chips synchronously with the saw drive system – an added bonus in terms of process reliability.
The tilt of the band wheels helps prolong the life of bandsaw blades by reducing fatigue due to cyclical bending. A fully automatic height adjustment facility for the saw frame depending on the material height and lowering of the saw when in rapid traverse help cut non-productive time to a minimum.
The inclined position of the bandsaw blade allows components such as girders, angled steel and U profiles as well as hollow rectangular profiles to be sawn at higher speed and with less burr.
The sawing unit is mounted for easy turning in generously dimensioned axial roller bearings and can be swivelled with a simple manual action. The closed material table simplifies material handling directly at the cutting point. The machine comes with a microspraying system as standard.
The machine can be supplemented as required with infeed and discharge roller conveyors, measuring devices and cross conveying systems, as well as NC angular adjustment. Behringer GmbH supplies these highly process-reliable customized transport solutions from its own in-house steel production facilities.
