Shark 660 CNC HS 40, automatic double-column bandsaw for 0° cuts on structural, stainless, alloy steels, profiles ,solid parts and profiles with dimensions up to 660x660mm. - CNC machine with a new controller: MEP 40. It has been specifically designed by MEP for the automation of its range of products. - This sawing machine also features a semiautomatic cutting cycle and uses latest generation technologies; indeed, Shark 660 CNC HS 4.0 is equipped with a NEW controller with processor RISC 32 bit 200 MHz with integrated interface to: - Install a GSM card (OPTIONAL) to send an SMS to the programmed number notifying the type of emergency occurred while the machine was operating unattended. - Connect to an Ethernet network for the remote assistance service. - Get software updates and changes by e-mail, that are transferred to USB port by SD or MMC card and later on the control memory, through the suitable slot on the control console. - Choose in the library (that can be extended by the user) the material type, geometry and hardness, the type of band to be used and the control automatically sets: position of the cutting head , feed rate and the blade rotation speed. - 8” touch screen display operator interface and push buttons for all functions of the sawing machine. It is simple and intuitive, with a self-learning feature it guarantees a reliable use and it controls all cutting parameters in real time. - Automatic acquisition of the actual starting point of the cut. - CNC machine to store up to 300 cutting programs each with different quantity and length. - Structure in sturdy cast iron, to absorb vibrations and give the machine a better cutting stability and longer blade life. - Cutting head downfeed movement with 2 brushless motors and with recirculating ballscrews-nut, with hydraulic compensation of the cutting head. - The cutting head movement is with linear guides and ball-recirculating pre-charged slides. - Hydraulic power pack to supply the feeding vices, cutting vices and carbide pads. - Infinitely adjustable cutting speed from 15 to 200 m/min by vector inverter. - Bar feeder with recirculating balls, screw/nut and stepper motor (feeding length in one stroke 760 mm or 30” that can be repeated in order to cut any length) - Self-aligning feeder vice unit for feeding even strained bars. - Rest piece that can no longer be in-feeded automatically by feeder: 70mm. - Driving and idler pulley locked by conical clamping ring. - Software to control/assess/correct in real time: cutting force – cutting torque and band tensioning against the programmed values. - Control panel, with and adjustable frame, assembled on a rotating arm. - Adjustable blade guide blocks. This system, that guides the blade, is a combination of pre-charged rollers and carbide inserts. - Idler pulley movement from the keyboard to replace the band easily. - Automatic adjustment of the front blade-guide head according to the dimensions of the bars to be cut. - Blade deviation device. - Laser projector to position the bar accurately to carry out non-standard or facing cuts. - Band rotation control with stop in real time in case of blade jammed. - Electro-mechanical servo-system for the blade dynamic tensioning. - Coolant tank incorporated in the base. - Blade cooling with lubricating oil by means of two coolant pumps. Each pump has a 120l/min flow rate. - Wash gun to clean the machine. - Powered blade brush. - Chip conveyor. - Sound and flashing indicator. - Bimetallic band for profiles and solid pieces. - Service keys and instructions manual, for maintenance and spare parts list.
