In 2018, fabricators benefit from blades and saws designed with them in mind
Lenox develops blades for industrial applications
New HRX bi-metal bandsaw blades from Lenox are for heavy-duty industrial applications. Engineered to cut structural steel, tubing and bundles, large metal beams and heavy walled tubes, the blades feature Power Blast technology that strengthens the blade to minimize breaks, and durable teeth for cutting large structural beams. The blades improve chip flow and reduce blade deflection for cutting efficiency. Tooth geometry was designed to minimize edge chipping and crooked cuts. The blades utilize alternating set teeth, which widens the cutting channel to limit blade pinching.
Behringer appoints marketing coordinator
Behringer Saws Inc. appointed Sarah Rowley marketing coordinator for its North American operations. Overall, Rowley will be responsible for maintaining current marketing initiatives, as well as the development of tools and creative programs necessary to take the department to the next level. Her duties include tracking industry trends, company website maintenance, developing and leading the company’s social media campaign, advertising, and trade show coordination. Prior to joining Behringer, Rowley was the marketing coordinator for Substation Engineering Co.
Behringer releases vertical plate saw
Behringer Saws Inc’s new LPS-T vertical bandsaw is a compact, heavy-duty plate saw. It comes with a linear guided material table with a support surface, which provides a cutting capacity of 50 in. long by 24.4 in. wide by 24 in. high. Flexible positioning and clamping of the material is achieved using T- slots in the table, which enables optimum positioning of fixtures or clamps. The optional NC measuring device significantly simplifies setup. After entering the required cutting depth, the measuring device enables automatic positioning. The material can be rapidly placed and aligned, ensuring greater flexibility and higher precision during the day-to-day work of the machine.
Simonds saw introduces data transfer technology
Simonds Saw announced its European partner, WESPA, Melsungen, Germany, introduced the ability to produce instant blade-to-machine data transfer of machine-specific cutting parameters for its Individual Performance Cutting (IPC) custom bandsaw blades program. By using a mobile device and scanning a QR code on the saw blade or blade box, operators can point the scan to the machine to transfer a complete, unique data set so the machine can begin cutting. The IPC solution uses a simulator that enables a user to model the sawing application and compare the results obtained with conventional saw technology to unique blade/ tooth configurations designed specifically for the user’s application.

Tigerstop develops ironworker kit
TigerStop LLC’s semi-automatic integration kit for the Piranha Ironworker now features its Standard Interconnect Kit, similar to its Advanced Interconnect Kit. The kit functions as a safety interconnect, preventing ironworkers from cycling while the TigerStop is in motion, and offers productivity benefits by partially automating the punching or shearing process. It moves the TigerStop to the correct dimension within a cut list without the operator having to press start, but the operator is still able to reposition parts before the next punching or shearing cycle begins. The kit offers accuracy and throughput while reducing operator fatigue.
