HYDMECH V-25APC Vertical Bandsaw

The HYDMECH V-25APC Automatic Vertical Band Saw is a fully hydraulic and completely automatic band saw, great for many heavy duty applications in high production metal fabrication shops. Featuring a 30″H x 25″W capacity, 10 HP motor, and 1 1/2″ blade; plus a high speed shuttle feed to index up to 60″ (120″ optional) in a single movement makes this the most versatile metal cutting band saw available.

Features and Benefits of The HYDMECH V-25APC Band Saw

The V-25APC is an automatic vertical band saw with the ability to miter from 60° left to 60° right. A 3 HP hydraulic pump supplies system pressure through two and three position directional valves controlling all vises, head swing, head advance/retract, blade tension, and guide arm movement. The V-25APC allows for easy adjustment of both head feed rate and cutting pressure. A machine sawing chart provides proper blade speed, tooth pitch, feed rate and feed force recommendations. The saw head control includes a fast approach control feature for quick set ups.

Its PLC control features storage of up to 1000 jobs with the ability to run 20 in queue. The feed rate is displayed on the PLC in linear inches per minute during the sawing operation via rotary encoder. The operator manual switches and PLC control are conveniently located on a console in the front of the machine. Components and wiring are neatly laid out and labeled for easy troubleshooting. Some unique features of the PLC100 control are blade chamber, which separates the cut part to allow for more back clearance (excellent for carbide blades); adjustable power down timer; coolant saver; trim cut on or off; automatic blade kerf compensation.

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.
