  • High Density WHDS-54 Rigid Horizontal Foam Saw

WHDS-54 - Rigid Horizontal Foam Saw

The Model WHDS-54 Horizontal Foam Saw is a two-wheel splitter designed to cut low to medium density rigid materials up to 6 lbs per cubic foot (96 kg per cubic meter) and up to 30" (762mm) high, 54" (1372mm) wide and 9' (2743mm) long.

Head Assembly - Specifications

Independent head assembly rides on precision ball screws that are protected by flexible dust covers. The head assembly has a tilt range of 0-5 degrees of forward tilt.

Table Assembly - Specifications

Powered table is driven by a 3 HP AC variable frequency speed controlled chain drive that is capable of moving the table at 50 FPM (15m/min) forward and 50 FPM (15m/min) fixed or variable reverse. Other speeds are available.

Blade - Features

The WHDS-54 is equipped with a 1.5" (38.1mm) x .032" (0.081mm) thick band knife supported by 16" (355mm) diameter wheels. The wheels have a molded urethane elastomer tire.

A blade sharpener equipped with long life Borazon™ grinding wheels is standard.

The blade motor is 10 HP and allows the blade to run at a no load speed of 4100 FPM (1250mm/min).

A standard Teflon coated blade guide, 0.099" (2.5mm) thick x 3.5/8" (92mm) wide, die spring tensioned, is provided with each machine.

Operator Control - Features

Touch screen operator controls are mounted on a freestanding podium connected by a flexible conduit so it can be positioned on either side of the machine.

The machine is equipped with a Programmable Logic Control (PLC) that allows control of the cut thickness with an indexing accuracy of +/- .003" (0.0762 mm). This is actual head movement based on encoder input. There are adjustments in the PLC program that allow compensation for mechanical tolerances and electrical timing that may change over time.

PLC also allows for such added features as:

  • Batch cutting
  • Batch pausing
  • Set height command

Power Requirements

Available electrics are 208V/230V/460V, 3 Phase, 60 Hz. Contact ESCO for other electrics.
