The Top of the Line

Your production line processes the most heavy-duty material, and needs it done fast with computerized precision. Aluminum plate, heavy industrial plastics, composite materials, and large stacks of wood-based sheet products – everything’s on the table. 

Maximize precision with pneumatic material grippers for automatically securing your material, a split hold-down beam, and dual fully automatic side aligners. Air floatation tables allow easy material handling during loading and unloading, and an optional rear-lift table can automatically load material stacks. Ensure accuracy with rack and pinion indexing between cuts, AC closed loop servo and digital magnetic scale read back. Back this up with our outstanding service and support, and you have the perfect production beam saw money can buy.

Reduce errors and speed up troubleshooting with an industrial PC controller with on-board optimization and diagnostics software. View our Saw Accessories page for more tooling options. The bottom line: the NP4 will meet or exceed your most demanding production requirements, every time.

Economical Automation

Load heavy plate, panel, or sheet stock easily onto the heavy-duty welded table frames – roller wheels or ball transfers cover the entire back table.

Panel Saw

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.

Hendrick Manufacturing Panel Saw

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

Hendrick Manufacturing 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.

Computerized 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.
    • On screen diagnostics on the controller for easy troubleshooting.
