HYDMECH’s H-40/80 Horizontal Band Saw is a heavy-duty semi-automatic saw with a solid head frame and base design complimented by a powerful blade drive system.

This bandsaw is a reliable choice for all your heavy-duty horizontal metal cutting applications.

Features and Benefits of The HYDMECH H-40/80 Band Saw

The H-40/80  is a heavy-duty semi-automatic saw with a workload capacity of 50,000 lbs and is designed to produce accurate 90° metal cutting. The H-40/80 features a 40″H x 80″W capacity, 20 HP motor, and 3″ blade. Saw guides are automatically set hydraulically. The idler side guide arm provides proper positioning of the guide arm spacing, in relation to material width, at all times.

Its PLC control digitally displays blade speed, feed rate, head up limit position, and cut elapsed time, and time remaining. Up to 99 different jobs can be entered into the PLC memory and a job queue function allows up to 5 jobs to be picked from the memory, and run consecutively. 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.

A hydraulically driven 3” blade brush keeps the blade gullets clean, helping to maximize blade performance and life. An automatic hydraulic blade tensioning provides consistent automatic blade tension while allowing quick and easy blade changing.

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.
