Feed to the cut and back – motor-powered
Arm height adjustment – motor-powered
Control panel – stationary
Log handling – manual
Innovative version of the extremely succesful CTR 800 that has been on market for 15 years now.
The key change lies in the increase of the impeller diameter from the original 500 mm to 600 mm. This allows you now to use 1.3 mm thick saw blades in contrast to the formerly used 0.9 – 1,1 mm blades. Using a 1.3 mm thick saw blade is the newest trend in band saws with narrow blades. The risk of blade rippling in the cut even at high speeds is substantially reduced. Thus, the machine productivity and the cutting accuracy are considerably increased.
Apart from the new machine design, there are many technological adjustments that improve user comfort as well as the quality and durability of the machine.
The design of the arm (now 40 kg heavier) and the sliding hard chromium rods has been reinforced. Due to heavier weight, the motor is now equipped with a brake, as in machines of the highest category. It significantly increases the accuracy of stopping at the desired point and contributes to the service life of the whole uplift system.
Universal log band saw which is, with its maximum cutting diameter of 83cm, suitable for most lumber. A wide, exceptionally massive running bridge of the band saw arm and robust running sections ensure undisturbed operation when cutting and even at high running speeds. Professional execution of all main technical units, such as running wheels with their bearing system, saw band arm construction, powering and feeding system, etc. ensure maximum service life and machine accuracy even under the most difficult operating conditions.
Continuously adjustable machine feed to the cut and back and band saw arm height adjustment. Travel speed is displayed on the digital display. In contrast to CTR 800, the central control panel on this machine is stationary and it’s placed on the main running section. This allows convenient control of the machine from a single location. For the backwards movement after the cut is finished (to the default position at the operator) the machine is provided with a rapid feed and automatic deceleration and stopping in end positions.
The feed to the cut and back is driven by an electric motor with worm gearbox controlled by a frequency converter. You can change the speed of travel simply by turning the potentiometer on the control panel.
The massive band saw arm is borne on adjustable hard-chromium rods (for moving up and down) which ensure absolute accuracy of band saw arm movement and virtually unlimited service life, if the machine is lubricated regularly. The vertical movement of the arm is provided by double-sided synchronous chain transmission powered by an electric motor with worm gearbox. The movement controlled from the central panel has two modes of speed – rapid feed and slow feed for accurate movement to a desired position. This system can be always additionally equipped with electronic metering which automatically moves to the specified position.
The arm is fitted with blade wheels made of high-quality grey cast iron with accurate balancing against vibrations. The wheel has a groove along its circumference. The groove holds a replaceable rubber-textile belt which creates an optimum contact area between the wheel and the saw blade. The sturdily mounted blade wheel is powered through a wedge belt by a professional electrical motor specially balanced against vibrations.
The tensioning wheel system moves along a sturdy cast iron wedge guide with adjustable pressure bar, which allows highly accurate adjustment without any free travel even in long-term machine operation.
The saw blade is guided in the cut by hardened and ground guide pulleys. This system can be fully adjusted in all directions and it ensures optimum position of guide pulleys and the saw band.
In order to ensure accuracy of the cut the guide pulley on the operator’s side moves as close as possible to the workpiece. Simply operated massive bearing system. It can be motor-powered and controlled as an auxiliary device from the control panel.
Stable running sections with steel arm bridge guides form the basis of the machine. They are sufficiently dimensioned for maximum diameters of logs as well. They were designed reflecting the practice, therefore designed to cope with very hard operating conditions. Cut length is virtually unlimited in all types of machines, it only depends on the length of running gear installed. Running gear sections are fitted with massive, height-adjustable log-bearing surfaces and adjustable retractable angles and log clamps. The basic version of the machine includes 3 workpiece clamps and 2 angular steady bars.
Gravity cooling and lubricating of the band with adjustable outlets in both guide pulleys ensure that the saw band is in optimum condition during cutting.
CTR series present the latest trends in construction of log saw bands with a special emphasis on maximum accuracy and long-term service life of the machine while ensuring minimum costs.
The machines are designed in an original modular execution which allows easy replacement or adjustment of all main technical sections and their individual parts. This in the long-term perspective reduces the maintenance costs and service times and therefore production stoppages as well.
Accessories – there is a wide range of accessories to all of these machines; they simplify and accelerate machine operation and influence its production. Our original modular system allows additional installation of necessary equipment at any time, because all basic versions of machines include all fitting spots including holes and threads.
