Circular saws designed for specific requirements are a Hertwich specialty. The Hertwich circular sawing plants are an important part of automated billet production facilities. After cooling logs pass over a combination of storage conveyors and roller table lines to arrive at the billet saw, to be cut into short or long billets as required. Parameter changes for new batches of logs are automated for fast and efficient implementation. No manual adjustments are required.
Hertwich “log tracking” starts at the log laydown station of the continuous homogenizing plant and ends with completed billet bundles at the stacker crane. Feed control for optimized performance, which limits the cutting feed according to the rated amperage. The cutting parameters for various alloys and billet diameters are stored in the data management system for user friendly operation.
