DigiBS 350 4.0 – Bead Saw for ALU with variable cutting angle (20°-160°)

The DigiBS 350 system is the integration of a technologically advanced variable angle saw and a length stop.  The saw is an ‘Up-cut’ type of saw with a blade diameter of 350 mm, the positioning of the rotary table which allows cutting angles from 20° to 160° is accurately controlled from a CNC unit.

The mechanical structure of the DigiBS 350 is strictly derived and improved from the DigiBS maintaining its well-known strength and precision qualities and improved cutting characteristics due to the large cutting diagram.

The machine is designed to cut a profile at the correct length and process the head cut of the following piece at the same time, even for angles different from 90° performing two specular cuts in a row.

The DigiBS 350 has a very fast cutting cycle due to the ‘short stroke’ action of the cutting blade.

DigiBS 350 4.0 is “reversible”, with the possibility of having the outfeed table both on the left or on the right side of the machine. Even after installation, sliding the electrical panel from one side to the other, the length stop can be easily placed on the left or the right side of the bead saw.

The cutting area is completely closed by an opening protection interlocked with a safety limit switch that prevents it from opening with moving parts.
The type of cut allows a very rapid cycle thanks to the reduced stroke of the blade.
DigiBS 350 is also equipped with an efficient evacuation system for end-facing scraps and shavings and is designed for connection to a suction system.

The electronic Length Stop  is made with sturdy aluminum profiles that integrate the carriage sliding system.
The positioning of the stop is managed by the numerical control and the measurement is verified thanks to a magnetic band system with an error of ± 0.1 mm.
This allows you to operate with exceptional precision combined with a high positioning speed.

Cutting list creation

  • Manual entering of data from touch screen
  • Loading files from USB memory, Ethernet or Wi-Fi (.txt)
  • Radio reception of measurements from the DigiBAR electronic gauge and automatic creation of list

It is possible to add, delete and edit any line at any time, selecting the line directly from the touch screen. If needed, the machine is able to manage the head cut of any initial cutting cycle.
The carriage fence moves automatically away from the saw after the cutting operation to facilitate cut piece removal. Moreover, the color touch screen contains all the information the operator needs during the work cycle, the colored areas clearly and immediately indicate the status of the machine. 

The integration with the DigiBAR 4.0 electronic gauge is the most common and easiest way to work with the DigiBS bead saw: a cutting list will be automatically generated in real time during the measurement cycle.

The DigiBS 350 control unit integrates an advanced radio interface that is able to create and manage a robust radio network in the whole workshop.

All the products of the DigiFAMILY family are able to use this network to exchange information.

DigiBS 350 4.0 is controlled by a 15” Touch Screen Industrial PC connected to PLC cards. 

The Windows 10 IoT Industrial operating system combines the simplicity of the Windows environment with the stability of systems intended for production environments. 

The software is designed to recognize the working cycle directly from the list, either imported from a net source, from an USB or a DigiBAR, and it automatically prepares the first cut when it changes.

In this way, the system excludes most of the operator induced errors, like mispositioning the profile in the clamping device, ensuring precision and repeatability like only a computer controlled machine can do.

For special necessities, like reworking a few pieces or doing some tests, the machine can work as a standard DigiBS 350 in manual mode, the working flow is reversed and a small fence is installed on the clamp.


DigiBS 350 4.0 is a CONNECTED MACHINE. 

Configurations, workshop data, parameters and production data are constantly saved on the new DigiCLOUD platform. This service allows you to minimize restart times in the event of hardware and software problems. 

The operating system is equipped with an on-line contextual help that informs the operator about the machine’s commands and, in case of breakdowns, offers a problem-solving service guiding the operator to solve the problem with photos and electrical / pneumatic diagrams directly on the screen. 

DigiINDUSTRY 4.0 (optional) is an additional service that allows production data analysis, to monitor the status of the machine and the working processes, in compliance with the Industry 4.0 procedures.
