AMADA INTRODUCES HFA700CII

LA MIRADA, CA, April 22, 2003 -- Amada Cutting Technologies, Inc. (ACT; www.amadabandsaw.com) has unveiled the HFA700CII, the newest member of the Amada bandsaw family. Ideal for cutting a wide variety of materials, the HFA700CII, with a 15 HP motor, features a 2 5/8" wide carbide blade that can achieve cutting rates far superior to conventional bandsaws, and an automatic self-adjusting wire brush system.

Key features include:

  • CNC feed control system. Separates materials into nine categories. Feed rates may also be calculated by manually entering cutting rates and/or blade speeds.
  • CNC programming unit. Has a quick entry key paid and easy to read LED display. The CNC processor does calculations for multiple indexing and deducts for kerf loss. Rotary encoders control material index lengths and assure accurate cutoff lengths even on long pieces requiring multiple indexing.
  • Automatic adjusting guide arm. The movable guide arm is automatically positioned to material size and reduces the possibility of blade deviation by keeping guides close to the material being cut.
  • Band deviation monitor. Assures straight and accurate saw cuts, it also monitors any blade deviation caused by improper feeds and speeds. Costs per cut are substantially reduced by maximizing cutting efficiency and increases blade life.
  • Multi-function guide unit. This acts as a third guide arm to maintain blade straightness at the beginning of the cutting process, especially on large diameter materials. It incorporates a quick approach arm, anti-vibration unit and beam strength support to the blade.
  • Blade cover safety switches. The wheel cover interlock switches are designed to immediately disable the machine if necessary.
ACT, established in 1987, is located in La Mirada, Calif., about 25 miles south of Los Angeles. ACT is part of the Amada Group, the world's largest manufacturer/distributor of sheet metal fabrication machinery, 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.
