Sawing System Perfect for Repetition Cutting
The VB1050 sawing system uses a full-stop measuring system along with automatic adjustment of the hydraulic pressure to provide optimal cutting speed for every cut.
The Voortman (Manteno, IL) VB1050 sawing system is equipped with the latest technology; the hydraulic cylinders used for the feed are replaced by a servo motor and spindle. A big advantage is that manual settings of adjusting the hydraulic pressure are replaced by automatic settings coming directly from the VACA M control software. This gives you the optimal cutting speed for every cut!
A full-stop measuring system positions a liftable stop plate just before the exact position to catch the profile moving at high speed using its detection plate. After the material is detected, the truck moves to the exact position and the material is slowly positioned against the stop plate. When the clamps of the sawing machine are closed the truck is lifted and moves to the next position. The stop plate is wide enough for bundle cutting.
Operating range 0 deg = 20 in x 44 in (500 mm x 1.130 mm)
Operating range 15 deg = 20 in x 41 23/32 in (500 mm x 1.060 mm)
Operating range 30 deg = 20 in x 36 13/32 in (500 mm x 925 mm)
Operating range 45 deg = 20 in x 28 in (500 mm x 725 mm)
Operating range 60 deg = 20 in x 18 1/2 in (500 mm x 470 mm)
