Featuring a 5HP variable frequency drive system that provides an infinitely variable band speed from 75-350 sfm. The standard PLC control enables the operator to program up to 1000 jobs with 100 jobs in queue. The large 10 gallon coolant tank, overhead bundling, and an out of stock switch makes this band saw an excellent choice for a lowest-cost-per-cut solution.

Features and Benefits of The HYDMECH S-20A 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 S-20A features a 13″H x 18″W capacity at 90°, 3 HP motor, and 1″ blade, the S-20A is a versatile, automatic scissor style band saw ideal for use in tight working spaces.

The operator manual switches and PLC control are conveniently located in the console. Components and wiring are neatly laid out and labeled for easy troubleshooting. The selector switches and buttons allow the operator to manually control all machine functions including emergency stops. The PLC 100 or optional PLC 500 controller controls the Automatic cycle. The operator enters job information through the PLC interface keypad. The information required will be desired part length and quantity of pieces. Up to 99 different jobs can be entered into the PLC memory, and can be called up and performed at any time. Also, a job queue function allows up to 5 jobs to be picked from the memory, and run consecutively. In Manual mode – the PLC displays blade speed, feed rate and length system readout.

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.
