Introducing a Small Footprint 8″OD Capacity Circular Saw…

Take a look at Tsune’s Newest Member…

Introducing the TK5C-200G Automatic Tipped Circular Carbide Saw.

 

Built with floor space savings in mind, this robust handler of up to 8.00″ OD diameter ferrous materials uses only 95″ x 299.5″ of floor space to handle and cut 20’0″ long x 8″ diameter steel logs.  This impressive 13,646.lbs. saw, with its solid cast base, provides the most vibration free cutting in the industry.

The all new TK5C-200G CNC is a fully automatic carbide sawing machine that has been developed by combining Tsune’s long experience with the latest in machine design technology.  This high production machine provides almost dry, close tolerance parts with CNC control of all cutting parameters, and a minimum of operator intervention.  It is outfitted with a 660 mm (26 in) x 3.7 mm (0.145 in), saw blade, tipped with either cermet/carbide and driven, by a powerful 30 Hp motor.

The machine comes standard with a high discharge, steel hinge belt goose neck chip conveyor and automatic sorting chute and can be outfitted with a chain/flat style or incline style auto-loading magazine to support 20’0″ long bar stock.  Its’ cutting range is from 1.2″ to 8.0″ round stock and 1.2″ to 7.0″ square or rectangular stock.  Program lengths are from 0.600″ or longer with a very short remnant.  Minimum or fully integrated automated out-feed sorting can be incorporated with this machine with major in-put from the buyer for specifications of just exactly how exiting materials need to be handled.

Tsune will be introducing this model at the November 2013 – Fabtech Show in Chicago, IL at the McCormick Exhibition Hall, Booth #S-2384.  Come and see this machine under power and take a good look its ergonomic design, one that will surely impress the most skeptical of production saw buyers and users.

The TK 130GL Automatic Saw from Tsune

The Newest Member of the Tsune Product Line…

The all new TK 130GL CNC is an automatic sawing machine that has been developed by combining the best features of its predecessor the TK5C-102GL, along with new innovations.  The two most notable are the shorter 2.2″ standard remnant and a programmable remnant from 1″ to 4″, pending the bar end condition.  This machine can be ordered with the heavy duty option that includes a more robust magazine, heavier sorting chute and a steel hinged belt chip conveyor with a 42″ discharge height.

Want to talk Safety?  As standard on all Tsune saws, the machine incorporates electrical-mechanical door interlocks that will not open without stopping the machine and pressing the “door open switch”.  The machine is also equipped with a “Safety Relay”.

 

 

Standard Features and Equipment:

1. Color touch screen (Mitsubishi)

2. “Set up wizard” for easy set up of new jobs

3. Fifty (50) jobs can be saved with a eight (8) digit alpha numeric name

4. Comprehensive US steel grades menu with the capability to program additional custom material grades

5. Job monitoring with cycle time, job duration, parts counter and tool life counter.

6. Up to five (5) different cut off lengths per job

7. Bar optimization by repeating the same sequence per bar

8. “In Process” length correction and chip removal rate can be done from the operator panel.

9. Bundle loading magazine, staging tables and output sorting conveyor can be discussed at the time of order

The Sawculator – Hottest New Tool for Crunching Numbers!

 

How would you like to have at  No Charge, the missing piece that completes your job cost estimating?  Read on….

Finally a web tool has been developed for pre-planning cutting requirements for Forging, Steel Service Centers and Fabricating Machine Shops. The strength of this new web tool is the ability to provide real time production estimates for quoting potential jobs. Based on an internal material library you now immediately see all data critical to the quoting anaylsis: blade life estimate, parts per hour,  recommended chip load, rpm and saw blade selection are provided. In addition, the number of bars used, as well as hours to produce the required quantity is included.

Prospective jobs are outlined with all the pertinent information reported in a clear, accurate format.

Tsune America provides the Sawculator at No Charge to its customers using our machines and disposable saw blades, via a permission form.

Call us or better yet, fill out the “Permission Form” and get access to the best number cruncher you have ever used!
