The Thermatool CS-090 cold saw is a high-speed machine for parting tube on a production line. This cold saw can provide cut lengths over a wide variety of mill speeds with an unrivaled degree of accuracy and has been tuned to allow the moving carriage to operate with a very high degree of precision.
An AC induction motor accelerates the carriage and a hydraulic cylinder drives the spindle forward into the product. The AC induction motor is controlled by a variable frequency drive which is interfaced with a real time operating system. This system interfaces the inputs and outputs of various encoders and devices to achieve control of the machine and its peripherals.
A control console is provided to allow the operator easy access to the production sections of the program. Within this section they can input data pertaining to the production schedule which will allow the machine to run with little or no operator interaction.
- Ability to program rounds, squares and rectangles
- Cutting speed control for various tube sizes
- Display of cumulative cross-sectional area (in2) of metal removed during cutting
- Full system diagnostics
- Cut length is displayed following each cut
