DigiBS 4.0 – Bead Saw for PVC with variable cutting angle (single bar) integrated with electronic Length Stop

DigiBS 4.0 is a system that integrates a bead saw and an electronic length stop.
The saw is an ”up-cut” type (blade diameter 300mm), while the positioning of the variable cutting angle from 20° to 160° is managed by a NC rotating table.

The DigiBS4.0 is specifically designed for cutting glazing beads, optionally equipped with a universal clamping system for a rapid or electronic adjustment (EGS – Electronic Glass Simulator option). The system allows the processing of different profiles without templates or counter blocks

DigiBS 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.

An exclusive guide and support system for the glazing bead facilitates the profile loading while the precise positioning and clamping are operated by the pneumatic piston glass simulator (12 selectable settings for the four pneumatic clamps), to obtain a rapid working cycle.

The EGS Electronic Glass Simulator is an additional option, which allows you to set an “infinite” number of glazing beads. This innovative system allows you to work a wide varied range of beads without any need of additional bead blocks.

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 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 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 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. 


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.
