Summer will be over before we know it, but there's plenty to look forward to in the fall. At Scotchman, one of the things we're excited for is IMTS in Chicago!
Do you still need to register for the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show? It's the second largest metal fabrication show in the country, and not something you'll want to miss (September 12-17, 2016).
Here's a preview of what machines you can expect to see when you visit Scotchman at this year's conference.
What Machines Are We Bringing to IMTS 2016?
When we sit down to plan what we're going to do at a conference like the International Manufacturing Technology Show, we ask ourselves what would be most useful for you to see.
This year, the answer we came up with is automation. Automatic measuring systems will increase machine efficiency and accuracy, saving the operator time and reducing human error.
We are putting our cold saw machines front and center, but we will still have the hydraulic ironworkers you know and love on the floor for demonstrations.
When you're putting together your IMTS MyShow Planner, don't forget to plan a visit to our booth! We'll be at N-6417 in the conference's North Building, B Hall. You can count on Jerry and the gang to have a surprise or two for anyone who makes it over.
1. CPO 315 RFA auto cold saw with standard supply table
The RFA is a fully automatic cold saw that provides uninterrupted cutting on tubes, solids, and extrusions and supplies the highest quality cuts.
This machine now comes with new touch screen controls which make the saw easier to operate. New added features decrease cycle times, making this saw faster than ever before.
The RFA now has the ability to store profile settings such as speeds and feeds, which makes changing material sizes faster. This machine is ideal for high volume and long length applications that require very accurate and clean cuts.
This new CPO 315 HFA-CNC saw is fully programmable so every cut length is fast and accurate. It uses a 30” linear actuator, driven by a servo motor. With its 315mm blade, it allows you to cut up to 3-1/2” diameter tubes or pipe and up to 1-3/4” solid material, while maintaining a length tolerance of ± .006” per index.
Depending on which model you go with, these semi-automatic cold saws will cut ferrous and non-ferrous materials.
Equipped with a power clamp power down feed, variable speed motor, and computerized material feed measuring system, the CPO 350 will give you a calculated, mill-quality cut every time.
4. SUP 600 Upcut cold saw with AngleMaster feed system
An IMTS must-see for the aluminum extrusion market, this Upcut Circular Cold Saw was designed specifically for cutting non-ferrous material. Check out a product video demo here.
Featuring a 24” (600 mm), 132 tooth carbide blade that is capable of producing round cuts up to 9” in diameter and rectangular cuts up to 15" x 6", the SUP-600 NF offers an increased cutting capacity not found in traditional pivot down saws.
This upcut saw coupled with our new AngleMaster measuring system, creates a semi-automatic programmable saw system that automatically rotates to any cut angle, pushes material into the saw & automatically rotates to the next desired angle. Plus, you can store cut lists on its 21" touch screen control.
We're proud to feature a drill tap option for our GAA-500 90, Automatic Upcut Circular Cold Saw. The newest addition to our non-ferrous saw line now has more possibilities than ever before. (See it in action!)
The GAA-500 90 is a large capacity upcut automatic saw for cutting non-ferrous materials at 90° up to 6” square and round. The saw uses a shuttle feed design with an adjustable vertical and horizontal clamp system to fit almost any profile.
By adding the drill/tap option to the GAA saw, you now have a true Scotchman production saw. Drill and tap holes up to 20mm, with a single spindle drill, or by adding a multi-spindle drill, add multiple holes at one time.
Add a CNC option, along with the DT option, and you can position a hole or set of holes on a single axis on your piece, then cut to length.
In addition to our world-class cold saws,we will by demonstrating the versatility, accuracy and dependability of our classic ironworkers.. We're bringing two along for the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago.
The latest and greatest 5014-ET has taken the 5014-TM, 3-station turret model, to a whole new level. The new 50-ton ironworker now comes standard with a new, improved electric stroke control which makes this machine more precise than ever.
Upgrading this new 5014-ET ironworker to a fully electric stroke control increases its accuracy and reduces the mechanical linkage which extends the life of the machine. Bending parts on a Scotchman 50-ton is now as accurate as any other ironworker in the industry; and is backed by Scotchman's Best-in- the- Business warranty.
7. DO95 Ironworker with RG stop system
This dual operator machine has a hydraulic system designed with two pumps to ensure both operations have full hydraulic pressure and speed, complete with two valves, two stroke controls and two remote foot pedals.
The DO 95 has a 95-ton capacity punch and a 9” throat depth, which can punch a 1-3/16” hole in 1” material. The DO 95 complements Scotchman’s existing dual operator machine line, which consists of dual operator ironworkers with punch capacity ranging from 70 to 150 ton.
