This is a simple and almost maintenance-free piece of equipment, hydraulically operated.
It is used to remove any foreign matters present on the surface layer of the log throughout the whole cutting line. This ensures a longer life to the blade sharpening.
The disk cleaning machine is controlled by the feed lever of the log carriage. During the processing, it is lowered through a hydraulic cylinder to lean on the log, and set in action by a hydraulic motor. During the carriage return, it is stopped and raised from the log.
The disk cleaning machine can be excluded from the operation schedule by a specific switch.
It requires a hydraulic power pack, to be supplied separately for existing log band saws.
In case of brand-new machines, the hydraulic power pack will be that of the headrig.
Heavy-duty cast iron structure with solid flywheels also in cast iron at dynamic balancing.
Top flywheel support is mounted on slides and ball sliding blocks, which allow a sensitive reaction to the changes of blade tension.
Blade guide is equipped with hydraulically operated push guides.
Blade guide, blade tension, blade protection and blade braking device are hydraulically operated. Inclination of the top flywheel to adjust the blade projection.
The machine is completely enclosed so as to avoid access to dangerous parts. A push-button panel with a mode selector allows the blade adjustment without opening the protections. A polycarbonate window and the inside lighting allow to control the blade during its setting.
Centralized lubrication with manual pump.
Centralized lubrication of blade and flywheel face.
