Behringer expanded its HBM series of high-performance bandsaws to include the new HBM-SC series. The HBM440A-SC and HBM540A-SC feature SC (speed-cutting) technology that enables ultrahigh-speed cutting of virtually all metals, including tool steels, stainless steels and other materials traditionally characterized by slow cut rates. To maximize cutting speed, Behringer re-engineered the HBM saw frame so that it channels the buildup of forces away from the work area. This permits optimized band clamping to reduce vibration and increase precision movement. Newly designed band guides are fitted with nozzles that spray coolant directly into the kerf. This keeps blades and materials as cool as possible during high-speed cutting, which enables longer periods of uninterrupted throughput.
