The sawing technology specialist KASTO is extending its product portfolio: The KASTOwin F 10.6 fully automatic band sawing machine is now available with a moveable material support table. This makes it possible to feed in and position heavy, bulky stock such as ingots, large tools or offset shafts easily and reliably.
A versatile, robust and economical standard solution for a wide range of sawing applications – these are the properties that have already made the KASTOwin series of band saws, which was were first launched in 2014, extremely popular with many of the company’s customers. To expand the range of possible applications and simplify the sometimes laborious task of handling large workpieces, KASTO has decided to extend this product family: The KASTOwin F 10.6, which has a cutting range of 1,000 x 1,060 millimetres, is now available with a moveable material support table. The saw is particularly suitable for steel manufacturers, steel traders and large-scale toolmakers. Using the table, it is possible to feed, for example, ingots, permanent moulds or materials with pre-forged geometries simply and reliably in a way that meets process requirements.
The support length of the table is 2,600 millimetres, while the table has a travel distance of 3,700 millimetres and a bearing capacity of up to 18 tonnes. It can travel at a speed of up to three metres per minute – and do so with exceptional positional accuracy. The table is moved in the longitudinal direction by two linear guides, each equipped with four lubricated linear roller bearings. Precision feed is achieved by means of a zero-play ball screw spindle, while a hydraulic horizontal vice mounted on the outfeed side of the saw band holds the workpiece in place. Like all the models in the KASTOwin range, the saw excels thanks to its robust steel construction, a cutting accuracy of ±0.1 millimetres per 100 millimetres of cutting length, as well as cutting speeds of up to 150 metres per minute.
To respond to special requirements, KASTO offers an extensive range of accessories for the KASTOwin F 10.6. This includes a laser to depict the projected cutting trajectory, a travelling hydraulic horizontal vice at the end of the table, support surfaces with wearing plates and infrared remote control. A wide range of individual stop, alignment and clamping devices are also available for the saw.
