Supplier Spotlight: Pendu Offers New Heavy-Duty Gang Saw
Pendu develops high-production gang saw for demanding applications. New levels of automation allow for easier troubleshooting and changing line speed.
Date Posted: 1/1/2018
Pendu Manufacturing has introduced a new heavy-duty gang saw. It is the company’s heaviest gang saw, built for both greater durability and efficiency.
This powerful gang saw features a 150 hp motor to drive the bottom arbor and a 125 hp motor for the top arbor. The motors enable the gang saw to achieve feed speeds of up to 200 feet per minute while resawing tough hardwood cants.
Pendu designed the new heavy-duty gang saw in response to customer requests for a heavier, faster machine, according to Denny Goshert, a Pendu sales representative. The feed speed of up to 200 feet per minute is twice as fast as the company’s standard gang saw, he noted.
Customer feedback has been positive, reported Goshert. “Our customers have seen dramatic improvements in production thanks to purchasing the HD Gang Saw as part of a complete high production system that includes our high-speed stackers.”
The high production systems include a PLC-based system to control feed speeds automatically in order to maximize feed speeds for optimal production. The PLC also provides system monitoring for troubleshooting.
Pendu’s innovative gang saw feed system features 27 powered rolls — 17 on the bottom and 10 on the top. The company uses a unique hardening and chroming process to produce strong, durable rolls.
Constructed with a 1-¼-inch thick steel box frame, the new Pendu heavy-duty gang saw has a cutting capacity of 6 inches high and 12 inches wide.
An in-board cant sizer, powered by a 50 hp motor, can remove up to 1 inch of material off the top of the cant as it enters the gang saw.
A video of the new machine, showing it cutting hardwood cants, is available on the Pendu website.
