The accuracy and high quality performance you expect from Armstrong.
The world leader in band saw swaging and shaping technology for more than 100 years. The conventional eccentric die and solid carbide anvil are adjusted just like a conventional Armstrong air swage. The two carbide clamps grip the saw without twisting, for positive clamping without "swirl cuts" in the saw steel. The shaper side dies have the angles and clearance precisely ground into the carbide tips, just like Armstrong's popular #6900 shaper to achieve the tooth you want. Even the amount of "pull down" of the tip can be adjusted quickly and precisely, making it easy to maintain a "full back" on your teeth.
Touchscreen control and independent swaging and shaping heads for unmatched versatility.
The AutoSwage accepts saws from 4" to 16" wide with standard tooth spaces from 1" to 3". The operator can change tooth space adjustments in less than two minutes. Just pressing a button on the touchscreen changes the operation from swage only to swage & shape.
Automatic tooth face lubrication system
This system eliminates the need for an operator to apply messy oil or chalk to each tooth. Automatic shut-off stops the AutoSwage after all teeth have been accurately swaged and shaped.
Quick change eccentric dies and swage head
This feature makes it easy to use the AutoSwage on a variety of saws. Eccentric dies in ⅜", ½", ⅝" and ¾" are available for the AutoSwage in the standard short bite style. The three largest size dies are also in the extra aggressive extra-short bite style, while the ½" and ⅝" sizes are also available in the mild long bite style. In all, there are nine combinations of die sizes/styles available to cover nearly every swaging situation.
Eliminate a frequent cause of repetitive stress injury while increasing productivity by automating this task.
Both filing room productivity and safety are improved.
One productive AutoSwage keeps up with four sharpeners.
Set-ups are fast – usually less than three minutes to "load and go". The AutoSwage swages and shapes simultaneously, so a 200 tooth saw can be swaged and shaped in about 21 minutes after pressing the "start" button. Operators can accomplish other work in the file room while the saws are swaged and shaped on the Armstrong AutoSwage.
