FORMAT4® KAPPA AUTOMATIC CLASSIC
The compact beam saw for efficient cutting
The Format4® kappa automatic beam saw fulfils the individual requirements of the discerning woodworker with efficient panel sizing with an excellent price/performance ratio, with a 2m² less space requirement than saws with the same cutting length.
The classic model convinces with the generous basic specification, with cutting lengths of 3,200 mm and 4,300 mm, two moveable support tables with air cushion function and a pressure device for an exact right angle cut when crosscutting. The main saw aggregate is equipped with a 7.5kW motor, has a max. 320 mm saw blade diameter and 68 mm saw blade projection. The main saw blade unit is completed with a separate scoring aggregate with 150 mm saw blade diameter and the possibility of adjusting the saw whilst it is running. The 15'' intuitive touchscreen control concept ensures a quick and simple control of the machine.
Optimised saw carriage with extreme running smoothness
The saw carriage with main and scoring blade is guided along a hardened and ground round bar guide system. A highly precise gear drive and gear rack drive system results in an extremely smooth movement of the saw carriage with cutting speeds from 1 to 40 m/min. This guarantees a constant cutting quality regardless of the material being processed. The cutting direction towards the fence ensures even more precision when making right angled cuts.
Roller conveyor and workpiece transport
Solid steel clamps, pneumatically controlled, guarantee a safe and damage-free clamping of panel stacks (opening height 80 mm) and individual small panels. The roller track supports the material pusher transport of panels and guarantees a precise feed of the panel material to the cutting line. The panel pusher, made from solid steel is guided on both sides and is equipped with a magnet measurement band system. The combination of a highly precise servomotor and solid material grips ensures maximum repeatability is achieved. The pressure device with rollers presses the workpiece against the fence and guarantees an exact 90° angle (for workpiece widths 50–1200 mm).
New control panel and Format4® software – everything from one source
The new, even clearer control panel with a 15" touch panel fits perfectly with the machine design and guarantees ergonomic and stress-free working. Alongside ARDIS as a modular structured cutting optimisation software, the simple and intuitively operable Format4® software supports the simple and precise operation with maximum productivity.
