The PEGAS 240x280 A-NC-F is a highly efficient automatic, hydraulically controlled band-saw equipped with a feeder. It is suitable for sawing steel (including tool steel and stainless steel) and non-ferrous metals.
The band-saw has a sturdy design. The arm is made of cast iron and is designed to provide the necessary performance and accuracy of cutting. Its 25° incline prolongs the life of the saw blade. The arm is driven by a shaft supported by conical bearings, which can be adjusted. It is driven by a three-phase motor through a worm-gear unit.
The vice is made of cast iron and its jaws ensure safe gripping of the material. The feeding vice travels on two edged bars with Teflon bushings and is powered by a hydraulic cylinder. This assembly is called the feeder. It pushes the sawn material into the main vice according to the length input by the operator on the control panel. The position of the feeder is indicated by an electromagnetic micro-sensor and a gauge band. The feed-vice floats on the feeder. This design allows free perpendicular movement of the vice to the feed route. The fixed jaw of the feed-vice thus absorbs possible crookedness of the fed material and thus eliminates wear of mechanical parts of the feeder.
The saw is equipped with an electromagnetic device, which controls the tension of the saw blade and a limit switch, which protects the blade against insufficient tension. The saw blade is powered by an electromotor with a frequency changer (stepless speed control), worm-gear unit and a sturdy flange with a shaft. The driving and tensioning pulleys are casts.
It features a cooling system with cutting emulsion distributed to the band-saw guide.
