The new KKS 500 series from framag features a compact design (saw station dimensions: 2100 x 3200 x 2200 mm) and a mass of 9 tonnes, making it a heavyweight that is ideal for use in heavy industry (dust, dirt, three-shift operation) and in forging. The hydraulic pipework and the electrical cables are maintenance-free and integrated in the machine bed for the best protection from damage - a concept that has been proven over decades of use. The remaining machine components are all easily accessible and easy to maintain.
The Hydropol® designed by the framag engineering team was designed in a special type of concrete and adapted specifically for high-performance use with optimal attenuation of vibrations occurring during cutting processes. This also has a positive influence on the cutting performance. The billet support from below and the horizontal and vertical tensioning provide the ideal three-point tensioning and especially increase output for curved billet and extend tool service life. Chips are reliably deflected by guide plates to the integrated chip conveyor.
An additional benefit is the self-centring saw blade damping. With the smooth-running saw blade, the cut gap is minimised and material loss is reduced. The saw blade drive has an output of 45 kW, which enables cutting speeds of up to 400 m/min. High quantities and high machine availability are guaranteed as a result. Depending on the saw blade, the machine can be used to cut all materials ranging from non-alloy construction steels to high-alloy special steels and stainless steel.
The modular design of the machine makes it expandable and adaptable to the given requirements with infeed and outfeed periphery equipment.
"We are a modern high-tech company and our customers demand high accuracy from us. In order to meet these demands we need highly qualified employees. From engineering and cutting to metalworkers, welders, fitters, stock removal and assembly, the work is always precise", said Mr Haas, CEO of framag. "Together we will continue to impress our customers with tailored solutions, engineered and made by framag, and steadily pursue our growth strategy!”
When we talk about solutions, we also approach our various tasks as an important challenge: Identification with the goals of our clients, an understanding of international market conditions and performance in the application technology. We take the extra step to be close to our customers.
This is why framag is the partner for customer-oriented solutions in saw- and flame-cutting technology, or when vibrations must be damped at their point of origin. Our know-how lets us guarantee long-term performance!
