Mitering Band Saw
June 10, 2013
Behringer offers the new HBP-510/1208G mitering band saw for precision high-speed cutting of large structural beams and profiles. With a cutting range of 47.2 x 20 inches and a bilateral miter of 30 degrees off of 90 degrees on both left and right side, the new saw is designed to meet stringent demands in the steel and construction industries. The wide cutting range allows for large structural beams to be cut at a 45-degree angle. The frame of the new saw is inclined 8 degrees, which optimizes the number of blade teeth that contact the material being cut. The saw frame is designed with a rotary, swivel-action bearing for smooth miter angle adjustments. The mitering point is located at the intersection between the saw blade and the material support edge so that the measurement reference line never changes. The simple rotating action of the bearing lets operators make adjustments rapidly and achieve a high degree of accuracy in setting desired miter angles. Powered by a 17.7-HP gear motor, the HBP-510/1208G utilizes a ball screw for precise down-feed control.
