HYDMECH S-20 Manual Bandsaw

HYDMECH’s S-20 Manual Miter Cutting Band Saw was the first band saw to incorporate a swing head design for miter cutting. These innovations have been at the core of the HYDMECH trademark. These versatile, scissors-style machines are designed for multiple light/medium duty applications and are ideal for use in tight working spaces and cutting tight angles into a variety of materials. This band saw features a 13″H x 18″W capacity at 90°, 3 HP motor, and 1″ blade, which makes this a versatile metalworking machine ideal for metal fabrication shops.

Features and Benefits of The HYDMECH S-20 Band Saw

All HYDMECH band saws are developed using the latest design and engineering technologies, only high quality parts and components are used. The machine base is designed and produced with electro-welded steel components for maximum rigidity and support; the leveling bolts are located at corners of the machine.

The powered blade brush is keeps the blade gullets clean, helping to maximize blade performance and life. The hydraulic blade tensioning provides consistent automatic blade tension while allowing quick and easy un-tensioning for blade changing. A chip removal auger and removable 9-gallon coolant tank are built into the base while a 3HP driven hydraulic pump supplies system pressure. A 3-position directional valves controls all vising, head up/down, head swing, shuttle movement, and blade tension function. The pump / motor assembly and hydraulic manifold complete with the directional valves all swing out with the compartment door for easy service access, and minimal downtime.

TROUBLESHOOTING ISSUES

What type of hydraulic oil is used on HYDMECH machines?
Texaco Rando HD46 or equivalent or machines built with Parker or Bosch Rexroth Power Packs use Shell Tellus 22 or equivalent hydraulic oil. The fill level is marked as a black line on the temperature / level gauge.
What hydraulic oil filter is used on HYDMECH saws and how often should it be changed?
HYDMECH uses commercially available filters. When calling to order filters, please refer to the information listed on your current filter to obtain the proper dimensions as different sizes are used. Filters should be changed after the first 50 hours of operation and then every 500 working hours after that.
My saw runs, but I have no hydraulic functions or any pressure showing on the system pressure gauge.
Between the hydraulic pump and motor there is a bell housing containing a three-piece coupling. Inspect the coupling to see if one of the flanges has loosened and slid apart. If it is necessary to re-connect the coupling, use removable Loc-Tite on the set screws, or if the coupling is damaged, it will need to be replaced. With new saw installations, if there is no pressure showing on the system pressure gauge, it is likely that the phase wiring is backwards. Reverse any two of the three phase wires supplying power to the saw.
On my inverter driven machine the blade shuts down and will not restart.
Disconnect the supply voltage to the saw for approximately five minutes. Turn the power back on and try to restart the saw blade. If the alarm or fault code persists, check the led screen on the blade motor inverter drive for the presence of an error code, call the factory with the saw serial number, inverter model number and the error code.
My chip auger has stopped turning on my saw.
The chip auger may be jammed with a thin piece of metal. If you are unable to locate or remove the obstruction, you need to reverse the auger rotation. Lower the head fully down, shut off the hydraulics, and reverse the two conveyor hoses at the hydraulic manifold. Start the hydraulics, raise the head, and switch the head to the down position and the chip conveyor will run in reverse dislodging the piece of metal. Then put the hoses back as they were initially.
