AMADA INTRODUCES HKB6050

LA MIRADA, CA, March 4, 2003 -- Amada Cutting Technologies, Inc. (ACT; www.amadabandsaw.com) has rolled out the HKB6050, a fully automatic, double-posted full capacity bundle cutting band saw. The 10,000 lb. machine, measuring 122" x 138" x 85" has a number of standard features including:

  • Full capacity bundle vise. Extremely rigid and heavy duty vising for fast, accurate cutting of full capacity (20" x 20") bundles using all types of materials. Positive clamping on all sides of the bundle virtually eliminates movement of the pieces being cut.
  • Automatic trim cut. The patented device gives the operator the option of whether or not a trim cut is needed. Expensive set-up times are reduced, which increases productivity.
  • Auto guide arm positioning. Eliminates the possibility of operator error in the initial setup. The guide arms will always be as close as possible to the pieces being cut.
  • NC back gauge auto feed. Has a conveniently located operator's station with controls for the NC back gauge, which cuts pressure and flow for fast set up and economic cutting.
  • Cutting rate digital display. Shows desired feed rate - can be preset and verified prior to starting cutting operations.
  • Blade deviation monitor. Monitors any blade deviation created by improper feeds and speeds, and assures straight and accurate saw cuts.
