HYDMECH H-22A Horizontal Bandsaw

HYDMECH’s H-22A Automatic Horizontal Band Saw allows for accurate 90° metal cutting for use in heavy-duty applications. This is a highly versatile, guillotine style band saw designed to provide exceptional, straight cutting capability in multi-shift, high production environments. A fully-automatic metal cutting saw with hydraulic full stroke vise, canted head, 10 HP motor, and 2″ blade and makes it an ideal solution for every metal fabrication shop.

Features and Benefits of The HYDMECH H-22A Band Saw

The H-22A is fast, with its high speed shuttle feed indexing up to 34″ in a single movement. Its optional 6° degree canted head, recommended when cutting larger beams, structural steel, and bundles of square tubing allows for more efficient cutting and improved blade life. A standard feature is the variable vise pressure which allows for adjustment of the clamping pressure of both vises. Recommended for thin wall tubing and other light material applications where standard vise pressure may deform the material.

The operator control console is located on the front of the machine, to the right of the out feed table, the selector switches and push buttons allow the operator to manually control all machine functions including emergency stops. The PLC 100 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. 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.
