H-18A-120 10 Foot Bar Feed

10′ Bar Feed

10’ bar feed with servo drive is faster than a hydraulic cylinder. It’s much faster for processing longer pieces, lowering cycle times.

H-18A-120 Full Height Full Clamping Vises

Full Height, Full Stroking Vises

Full height full stroking vises, allows you to operate the vises faster and hold large pieces better. Full height vises allow you to hold large objects more efficiently, like I-beams. Full stroking vises mean you don’t have to manually change the position of the vise operator.

H-18A-120 Hydraulic Clamping Guides

Split Front Vises

Split front vises reduce burrs and allow for holding thin pieces close to the blade on both sides. The blade passes through the vise and the vise holds the workpiece on both sides at the same time, also reduces burrs and allows you to split short pieces that you could not do with a standard vise.

S-20 Horizontal Pivot Band Saw Angle Measurement

Hydraulic Clamping Guides

The machine controls the clamping of the guides not the operator. Since the pressure is set by the machine and not the operator, it is more consistent resulting in less errors.
