Computer Precision with Power and Control

Heavy-duty production requires top-of-the-line equipment – maximize your power while minimizing errors with the HC series panel and beam saw. Precision is built into every inch, with pneumatic material grippers for automatically loading and securing your material, a split hold-down beam, and dual fully automatic side aligners.

Accuracy is ensured with rack and pinion indexing between cuts, AC closed-loop servo, the digital magnetic scale read back, as well as a robust industrial PC controller with on-board optimization & diagnostics software. Get incredible power with the standard HC4 model’s 4” cut depth and 20 HP main blade motor, or go into overdrive with the HC6 model’s 6” cut depth and full 25 HP main blade motor. Hendrick customers buy our machines with confidence knowing we offer world-class panel saw service and support.

When you have heavy-duty production needs and no room for errors, the HC series is up to the task.

Greater Power and Precision

Automatically load heavy material and stacked sheets onto the solid phenolic rear table for processing. Achieve faster cycling speeds with grippers holding the material for cutting and indexing. Solid pusher plates between the grippers allow cross and parallel cutting of narrow strips. Maximize accurate positioning and cutting with a closed loop AC servo system featuring precision ground rack and pinion, AC servo resolver, and a magnetic scale.

Panel Saw

Lighten the load for your operators with air floatation tables for easy material handling.

Panel Saw

Maintain control with quick adjustment of individual devices like material grippers, pressure beam, and material side aligners, all from simple front-mounted pressure regulators.

Panel Saw

    • IPC controller running Windows 7 with a LAN interface, CD ROM, solid state hard drive storage (SSD) and high speed USB-II ports.
    • 19” full color flat screen with animated cut pattern graphics.
    • On-board Material Optimization Software to optimize material waste. Provides plan-to-execution from optimization mode.
    • On-board diagnostics show the status of all machine I/O devices to minimize downtime. Diagnostics also provide “how to” solutions that point to problems and provide corrective actions.
    • Ammeter on front panel to monitor saw blade load. On screen diagnostics on the controller for easy troubleshooting.

Computerized Panel Saw

Ensure perfectly square cuts and minimize stroke and cycle times with an encoder that automatically positions the dual side aligners to the width of the material being cut before it’s activated. Each side aligner works independently to apply pressure to hold your material against the squaring fences on both the front and back side of the saw blade as the pusher approaches the cut line.

    The Hendrick panel saw has dramatically increased our efficiency by reducing the critical set-up and production times for the many different jobs we run through the machine every day – Ease of operation, intuitive controls, and reliability make this saw the centerpiece in an operation providing just-in-time customized protective packaging as the critical final link in our diverse customer base’s supply chain
    Rand Whitney
    We have been quiet satisfied with our new Hendrick saw. With the efforts in manufacturing to improve quality, safety, and productivity, this saw has excelled in all areas. We are now able to cut materials we couldn’t cut previously, and we can cut them faster, more accurately, and much more safely.
