Line-Up of Fabrication Equipment

KAAST Machine Tools, Inc. will feature a variety of fabrication and forming machines. Booth A4521 will feature a PS 85 DP 90 ton Ironworker, HPA-P 100/40 100 t x 40" Simple Press Brake, RBD-3M 10/3 3' Plate Roller, DMVH 305 VS Knee Mill with independent vertical and horizontal spindles, HBS 230 DG 9" Dual Mitering Band Saw, HBS A 380 C Full Automatic 15" Band Saw and a PBH 80 Angle Roller strong enough to bend 1.75" square tubing to a 20" diameter.

The PS 85 DP Ironworker is a multipurpose machine with 90 tons of pressure and five work stations for punching, shearing and notching. The DP line-up features two separate hydraulic pistons each controlled by an independent foot pedal, allowing two operators to work both the punch and another station simultaneously. The stroke of the pistons can be adjusted according to the thickness of the desired material to be cut. To assist in the shearing process of round and square bar or tube stock, an improved automatic back gauge is included standard with all machines. This back gauge also allows for automatic feed shearing, with an included limit switch to activate the shear as well. An adjustable rear stop is included with the angle bar and flat bar shearing stations.

The DMVH 305 VS knee mill combines both the traditional vertical turret found on knee mills with an independent #40 taper 5 HP horizontal spindle. Offering infinitely variable speed control, these machines offer quiet operation with V-belt drive, a swivel range left and right ±45° and rotation of the upper arm around the column 360°. Featuring box ways on the Y-axis and column, semi-guarding (full guarding available) and 3-axis digital read-out, these Taiwanese Bridgeport style mills are made with MEEHANITE cast iron that is annealed and stress-released, providing high rigidity and wear resistance. All guideways are coated with Turcite B and the XYZ slideways, table and T-slots are hardened and ground.

The RBD-3M is a plate roll series designed for light to medium jobs, accommodating materials up to 0.25" in thickness. Applications include creating aluminum bendings, air conditioning channels, advertising panels and sheet metal covers. This series of plate rolls is offered in 3' to 6' length and features top rolls fixed via a locking lever, with adjustable side and bottom rolls. Each model includes wire grooves on the bottom rolls and left-right rotation on the dual footswitch.

The HPA-Ps are high quality machines and a cost-effective solution for small bending jobs and prototyping. The HPA-P presses offer 100, 150 or 200 tons of working pressure providing steady, smooth operation with manual and two-handed working controls at a lower price point than their CNC cousins. According to the company, the one-step pressure adjustment and one-step stroke adjustment simplify what can be a daunting task.

The HBS 230 DG semi-automatic, dual-mitering, horizontal bandsaw offers 9" of capacity, a coolant system, a quick-action vise and infinitely variable speed and down feed control. The hydro-mechanical blade tensioning system makes easy work of blade changes and the included 4' feed roller conveyor holds longer materials during processing. It features a 2 HP gearbox drive and easy set miter selection.

The PBH 80 features three driven rolls as well as two hydraulically adjustable bottom rollers, vertical and horizontal operation capabilities and standard modular dies suitable for bending square, flat and angle iron. Custom dies for rounded or other unique profiles are available as well. Also included is a digital display of 2 axes and mechanical guide rollers adjustable in 3 axes. These tools can bend 1.75" square bar as tight as 20".
