Imet BS 400 SHI

Heavy duty hydraulic semi-automatic bandsaw with mitre cutting from 0° to 60° left and from 0° to 45° right. Highly recommended for production situations, especially where square section or flat bar is being cut.  The unique below centre pivot point means the blade is inclined at the end of cut offering the line of least resistance on these materials. Benefits include faster cut times, longer blade life, larger scope of what can be cut with each blade pitch, and less stress on the machine components. This feature should not be under estimated, and together with the robust construction and the quality components fitted, all these make the BS400 a class leading product.

Imet Inverter

The ESC blade speed inverter allows to increase speed range to work with a wide range of different material.

Single hydraulic Vice Pressure Reducer

Dedicated to hydraulic vice.

Hydraulic Vertical Vice

Unloading side vertical vice.

Addimist Bandsaw

Pure oil micro-mist blade lubrication system recommended for cutting tubes and sectional material where flood lubricant loss through the material is a problem. This precision delivery system allows adjustment for the number of pulses per min, and the quantity of each dose. (requires compressed air supply) The standard flood system is retained for cutting solid material and the operator can simply switch between systems.

Battery Laser Line

Quality German laser line. Addison fit item.

Powered Laser Line

Imet factory fit powered laser line.

Roller Table Adaptor

Adapter to synchronize the RTP/RTD table with saw frame motion.

Bundle vice

BS 400 SHI can be used with an mechanic bundle cutting device to work with bundles. The bundle allows to cut only at 90°; in the case the user has to cut at a different angle, the device must be disassembled. Maximum cutting capacity is 280x160mm, minimum capacity is 90x10mm.

End of Cut Inclination

This is a massive benefit when cutting square section and flat plate and should not be under estimated. This design ensures the blade always has a line of least resistance through these materials, reducing cycle times – dramatically increasing blade life and reducing load on the machine components.

Automatic Material Detection

BS 350 SHI is equipped with an automatic device for detecting the cutting material height to optimize the cutting process: the device initiates a rapid approach until the material is detected, then switches to the selected cutting rate, at the end of cut the bow only raises 10mm above the workpiece.

Cutting Control

An amp meter is fitted to illustrate the cutting load. This can be used to determine the blade condition and machine stress. LED indicators show the machine status.

Cutting Table

BS 400 SHI is equipped with a wide rotating table of 460 mm diameter, mounted on a thrust ring with pre-loaded thrust bearing for easy rotation. The vice can be positioned either side of the sawblade depending on the mitre direction

Saw Frame

The bow is manufactured in heavy cast iron with large band wheels 300mm diameter to reduce blade material stress. The tension of the band is 1700kg / cm2 for maximum precision and performance with front adjustment and control microswitch. The blade guard is hinged to facilitate the blade replacement .

Blade Cleaning Brush

Powered blade cleaning brush to enhance blade life and performance.

Blade guide system

Very important to get this right in any bandsaw, heavy steel guide arms support a precision set of pre-twist roller bearings and solid carbide blade guides to give maximum precision and performance.

Hydraulic vice

Hydraulic vice with adjustable guides free to move alongside the worktable , with quick motion and clamping.

34mm Blade

BS400 uses a blade 34mm to optimize cutting performances and cycle times: with this blade and its motor reducer the machine has perfect material penetration even on bigger profiles (and solid materials up to 250mm with C45 steels)
