HYDMECH V-20 Vertical Bandsaw

The HYDMECH V-20 Semi-automatic Vertical Band Saw is a hydraulic metal cutting band saw capable of mitering from 60° left to 60° right. This band saw features a 25″H x 20″W capacity, 10 HP VFD motor, and 1 1/2″ blade. Its standard 4-degree forward approach angle provides increased efficiency in cutting of structural materials and makes it a popular choice for machine fabrication shops.

Features and Benefits of The HYDMECH V-20 Band Saw

The V-20 is a semi-automatic vertical band saw with a touch screen NC controller that operates the Semi-Automatic cycle and allows for Manual operation. The double miter angle operation has an angle “Go To”function, which allows the operator to enter 2 desired angles up to 60 degrees and have the machine

An out of stock switch is mounted on the shuttle vise, when the vise closes with no material between its jaws, the machine hydraulics will shut down (The cut in progress at the time of the switch being tripped is finished before shut down occurs). This option allows the machine to be left unattended with no danger of the machine continuing to cycle with no material left.

An optional feature is the hydraulically powered overhead clamp moves down on the material. This option is very effective, and necessary for bundle cutting various material shapes and sizes.

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.
