New machines debut at UK exhibition
Kaltenbach will be demonstrating a number of new machines and processes for the first time, including what is said to be the world’s fastest bandsaw, at the Mach 2008 exhibition, which is held at the NEC from 21-25 April.
The company’s showpiece line-up will include the HBM440 ALU, which is the fastest bandsaw ever developed and a machine designed for automatic straight cutting of non- ferrous materials. There will also be a mix of Behringer straight and mitre cutting bandsaws on display.
Also on show will be the Intelligent Blade Control (IBC), a fully integrated blade management and control system that influences cut accuracy and overall cycle times of straight cutting bandsaws.
The KBS750DG/KDS615 sawing/multi- axis drilling, close coupled system will be demonstrated on Kaltenbach’s Stand 4750 located in Hall Four. The machine features the latest solid carbide drills which cut five times quicker than high speed steel, and three times faster than tungsten carbide tipped units.
