January 28, 2014. Two Behringer band saw machines, one automated and one semi-automated one, were recently bought by Plant 9, a member enterprise of Uralvagonzavod Scientific & Production Corporation. This was part of the plant’s technical upgrade program. The equipment has already been installed and is expected to reach its full production capacity in the spring of 2014, Uralvagonzavod Scientific & Production Corporation’s press service reports.

The machines were purchased for the blank production sector and are supposed to replace the abrasive cutting-off equipment soon. Unlike this kind of equipment, the band saw machines are highly precise and are suitable for treatment of all sorts of section pipes. Plant 9 intends to use these for making the so-called wedge blanks.

Every machine is meant to be used for its own section type. The semi-automated version can treat the metal that is up to 530mm thick, and the blanks will have to be delivered there manually. The numerically programmed automated machine is meant for small-diameter blanks and can cut barstock that is up to 260mm thick. In fact, both machines can be controlled by just one operator.
