What are the power service and air requirements for your machines?
Air requirement for all machinery is 90 - 120 PSI at approx. 6 CFM (Clean, dry) Power requirements are as follows: 120 volt 20 amp service, 220 volt single phase and three phase 20 amp/ 440 volt 16 amp. (440 volt may require transformer.) (Most machines are rated +/- 10%)
What is the difference between a single acting and a double acting cylinder?
A double acting cylinder has both an A and a B Port. This means oil enters the cylinder via the A port pushing the piston down. When the control calls for the piston to retract oil is diverted to the B port which pushes the piston up. A Single acting cylinder has an A port for running the piston down but is retracted with an internal spring. A double acting cylinder has pressing and pulling power and is generally controlled with a joy stick control.
What kind of blade life can I expect to get before it needs to be sharpened?
It is very hard to say what the blade life will be because of the many factors to consider. The following things effect both cold saw and band saw blades:
- Break-in of the blade / type or grind of the blade / blade coatings / proper tooth configuration / coolant used / speeds and feeds / material shape, type, hardness / type of saw / proper saw maintenance/ blade installation and adjustments.
What blade comes standard with your saws?
You can find this information by viewing our Blade Standards Guide.
Does Dake re-sharpen cold saw blades?
Dake does not sharpen blades in house, however we will be happy to recommend a professional re-sharpening service for you.
