AMADA UNVEILS HKB-6050

LA MIRADA, CA, July 30, 2001 -- Amada has introduced the HKB-6050, a fully automatic, double-posted capacity bundle cutting band saw. Toshi Ichimura, president of Amada Cutting Technologies, Inc. (ACT), made the announcement.

The HKB-6050 features an extremely rigid and heavy-duty vise for fast and accurate cutting. The positive clamping pressure on all sides of the bundle virtually eliminates any possible movement of the pieces slated for cutting.

The band saw has a patented automatic trim cut that gives operators the option of deciding whether a trim cut is needed. An auto guide arm eliminates operator error in the initial setup. A cutting rate digital display shows the desired feed rate (saw head descending rate), which can be verified prior to starting the cutting operation. The HKB-6050 also has a blade deviation monitor that assures straight and accurate saw cuts. The device also monitors blade deviation created by improper feeds and speeds.

Cutting capacity for the HKB-6050 is 23.6" x 20" (Rectangle, W x H); 20" for Round. Machine dimensions (W x L x H) are 122" x 138" x 85". Weight is 10,000 lbs. Table height is 28.3". Options include a 78" index stroke, front hydraulic vise, CNC controlled front vise index, roller table and spray mist coolant.

ACT, established in 1987, is located in La Mirada, Calif., about 25 miles south of Los Angeles. ACT is part of the Amada Group, founded in 1946. ACT sells and distributes bandsaw machines, bi-metal bandsaw blades and parts to manufacturing facilities, steel service centers, forges and foundries, machine shops and other metal-related industries throughout North America.
