NEW: saw blade monitoring
The DSB Singlehead 310 and 660 models and the DSB Twinhead NG XM thin-cutting band saws have sensors that monitor the pressure on the saw blade guide and the space between the saw blade and the saw blade guide. When a certain level of tolerance is exceeded, for example by the blade jumping out of the guide and drifting while cutting the wood, the material feed is automatically stopped and the wood remains in its current position.
Once the cause has been remedied, the feed can be restarted and the machine returns to normal operation. Stopping the saw prevents greater deviation from the desired cut.
- Saw blade protection
A loss of tension on the saw blade through overstretching is prevented.
- Machine protection
The machine components are protected because the feed or the machine is stopped when the blade drifts.
- Material protection
Saw blade drift is detected early, preventing tolerances from being exceeded and reducing waste.
It is possible to have DSB Singlehead 310 and 660 models and the DSB Twinhead NG XM thin-cutting band saws retrofitted with the monitoring system. We offer a cost-effective solution in the context of regular machine servicing.
