Kaast HCS 75 CNC cold sawClick image to enlarge

KAAST Machine Tools has added a new Fully Automatic NC cold saw to its line of circular saws.

Other standard features for the HCS include a NC Control with 7” touchscreen, trim and remnant sorting, incredibly fast bar feed (944”/min), and saw blade feed by AC servomotor and ballscrew.

The HCS also includes a top vice which keeps the material clamped allowing bundle cutting for increased throughput. The bar loading magazine can hold 13 pieces of 2.75” x 20” bar with the option to upgrade capacity. The electromagnetic brake and gear transmission are designed to decrease noise, vibration, and power consumption, helping increase blade life and cut quality.

The HCS boasts a rigid design and sophisticated anti-vibration features, resulting in a cut that is fast, precise, efficient, and clean. It is extremely fast at up to 500 cuts/hour for 2.75” bars, and 400 cuts/hour for 24” clean-cut lengths. The automatic material diameter sensing ensures the fastest cycle times. The thin-kerf blade design (0.079”) keeps waste at a minimum while increasing efficiency and productivity.
