MEP Shark Bandsaw 420 CNC HS 4.0: capacity 420 x 420mm

SHARK 420 CNC HS 4.0 is an automatic double column bandsaw for 0 degree cuts on structural, stainless and alloy steels, profiles and solid parts with dimensions up to 420 x 420 mm.



SHARK 420 CNC HS 4.0 is an automatic double column bandsaw for 0 degree cuts on structural, stainless and alloy steels, profiles and solid parts with dimensions up to 420 x 420 mm.

This sawing machine features a semi-automatic cutting cycle and uses latest generation technologies. Shark 420 CNC HS is also equipped with a new controller with processor RISC 32 bit 200 MHx with integrated interface designed to:

  • Install a GSM card (OPTIONAL) to send an SMS to the programmed number notifying the type of emergency that occurred while the machine was operating unattended.
  • Connect to an Ethernet network for the remote assistance service.
  • Get software updates and changes by email, to be transferred on SD or MMC card and later on the control memory, through the suitable slot on the control console.
  • Choose in the library (that can be extended by the user) the material type, geometry and hardness, the type of band to be used and the control automatically sets the feed rate and band rotation speed.

  • The limits of the head stroke are programmed through the console, depending on the dimensions of the bars to be cut.
  • CNC machine to store up to 300 cutting programs, each of different quantities and length.
  • Structure in sturdy cast iron, to absorb vibrations and give the machine a better cutting stability and longer blade life.
  • Saw frame movement with hydraulic cylinder on linear guides with ball-recirculating pre-charged slides.
  • Hydraulic power pack to supply the saw frame and the feeding and cutting vices.
  • Infinitely adjustable cutting speed from 15 to 115m/min by vector inverter.
  • Bar feeder with recirculating balls screw/nut and stepper motor, for bars up to 3,000kg (feed in length in one stroke 600mm, that can be repeated in order to cut any length).
  • Minimum bar remnant of 120 mm in automatic operation (OPTIONAL feeder jaws to reduce the remnant to minimum 25mm).
  • Self-aligning feeder vice unit for feeding even strained bars.
  • Driving and idler pulley locked by conical clamping ring to ensure a strong fastening.
  • Software to control/assess/correct in real time: cutting force, cutting torque and band tensioning against the programmed values.
  • Low voltage control panel installed on a rotating arm to reach the positions to operate safely still keeping the visual control.
  • Soft thermo-shaped keyboard in polyester, with SMD miniaturized mechanical buttons integrated in the card, with sound signal when operating, 5.7″ colour display with self-diagnostics messages.
  • [lilAdjustable blade-guide heads in steel, with roller and carbide pads, coolant taps for the traditional lubrication and preset to install the mist lubrication. (OPTIONAL).
  • Idler pulley movement from the keyboard to replace the band easily.
  • Automatic adjustment of the front blade-guide head according to the dimensions of the bars to be cut.
  • Laser projector to position the bar accurately to carry out non standard or facing cuts.
  • Band rotation control with stop in real time in case of locked tool.
  • Electro-mechanical servo-system for the blade dynamic tensioning.
  • Coolant tank incorporated in the base.
  • Two coolant pumps to ensure high cutting liquid quantities (120 L/min) to cool down the band and wash up chips from the working area, so as to garuntee a longer blade life.
  • Wash gun to clean the working area.
  • Blade brush.
  • Sound and flashing indicator for machine shut downs.
  • Machine preset for being handled by lift-truck.
  • Bimetallic band for profiles and solid pieces.
  • Service keys and instructions manual, for maintenance and spare parts list.
