HYDMECH H-14A Horizontal Bandsaw

HYDMECH’s H-14A Automatic Horizontal Band Saw comes specially equipped with a carbide tipped blade and will out perform anything in it’s class. This is a fully automatic band saw with hydraulic full stroke vises. With a 1 ¼” blade and 14” x 14” capacity, the ideal band saw for all your metal cutting needs.

Features and Benefits of The HYDMECH H-14A Band Saw

The H-14A features a powerful 8.8 HP variable frequency drive motor and a heavy duty 2 stage gearbox, controlled by an AC inverter drive. Blade speed is easily adjusted from the control console and a wide range of available band speeds allows for a clean cut across many types of material. Replaceable carbide insert guides housed in two heavy duty cast iron guide arms provide a cut accuracy of / – .002” per linear inch of material and excellent vibration dampening. Hydraulic saw guides are set automatically.

The cast iron side guide arm is mechanically connected to the front vise movable. This provides proper positioning of the guide arm spacing, in relation to material width, at all times. The H-14A has a heavy-duty shuttle vise powered by a ball screw and vector motor. This provides material indexing up to 19” in a single stroke with multi-indexing capability.

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.
