KBS 1351 band saw
The KBS 1351 is the latest addition to the high-performance band saw series, complementing the KBS 761 & 1051. With a maximum working range of 1330x600, the saw is ideal for cutting large, solid steel profiles. The powerful 15.9 kW drive motor allows the use of carbide saw blades to increase cutting performance by up to 30%. In addition, the optional Auto Feed Control can further boost cutting performance by up to 40%. The saw feed is equipped with ball screw and servomotor to ensure precise feed control.
The short-piece gripper (SPG) enables customers to automatically sort parts up to 1500 mm in length with straight and mitre cuts. The gripper is supplied as standard with one sorting position for offcuts/first cuts (max. part length 300 mm) and one sorting position for good parts (max. part length 1500 mm). An additional sorting position is optionally available (max. part length 650 mm) to provide greater flexibility. The SPG thus forms the link between the current pusher and the autosorter, making it the perfect addition to the product range.
Hypertherm has revolutionised plasma cutting technology with the new XPR. Compared with the previous HPR systems, Hypertherm has succeeded in significantly increasing the cut quality on steel, while at the same time increasing the cut speed. State-of-the-art monitoring featuring Arc Response Technology (ART) greatly extends the service life of wearing parts. In addition, concepts such as the EasyConnect torch and QuickLock electrode reduce maintenance costs.
KALTENBACH now offers customers a new technology database to help tailor the cutting process optimally to the machine, material and saw band. It takes account of the material (steel grade, material dimensions) and the saw band (bimetal/carbide, teeth spacing, width of set) to calculate the cutting speed and feed rate. This allows you to select different power levels ranging from tool-life-friendly to normal and high-performance so that you can adjust the system perfectly to suit your needs. The database is currently available in PROFICUT and will soon be available for PROFILINE as well.
