VIDEO: Alloy-Specific Bandsaw Setup Improves Finish Quality at Everising
Saws like band saws and circular saws are the time-honored way to cut raw material into useable forms for further machining in industrial applications. Saw cutting is not a simple process however, as each alloy has different speed and feed requirements to maximize surface quality and minimize waste.
In the video above, we learn how Taiwanese companies like EVERISING MACHINE CO. are advancing industrial saw technology, with company president Shu-Chai Chiao.
“We collect many country’s standards,” Chiao said, explaining how the company stays aware of the cutting requirements of different alloys.
“Every country, every manufacturer, has one number. This is a lot of data that we must collect in our computer side, which we can then put in our machines to choose materials. For example, if we’re using a United States standard, we can use that to get information and know what standard component is inside. This information includes cutting data, so we can make it easy to cut the material.”
EVERISING builds their own machine tools in-house, and so designs them to minimize vibration, noise and temperature.
To achieve the smoothest of cuts, EVERISING joined together with a saw blade manufacturer and developed their machines to properly lubricate the saw blades while in contact with the material.
“The cutting surface, whether it becomes smooth or rough is also really important,” Chiao continued. “Our machines are strong enough and have enough reach that it’s easy to get that smooth cut. We joined together with a saw blade manufacturer and we worked on a solution to lubricate the blades during the cut. We need this for an improved cutting surface. The saw blade, the teeth angle and the way the teeth cut are really important for us.”
