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.

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.
tooth face lubrication 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.
change eccentric dies and swage head make
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.
a frequent cause of repetitive stress injury while increasing
productivity by automating this task. Both
filing room productivity and safety are improved.
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.
Armstrong AutoSwage is available as either a right or left
hand machine. Saws of the same hand as the AutoSwage encircle
the AutoSwage. Saws of the opposite hand as the AutoSwage
are looped in front of the machine. As shown in the illustration,
one AutoSwage can swage & shape both right and left
hand (or double cut) band saws by using two sets of post
brackets and two air back feed units.
Armstrong AutoSwage can be used in line with an Armstrong
VariSharp or conventional #4 Armstrong band saw sharpener.
The minimum saw length for using a sharpener, filing clamp
and AutoSwage in line is 30 feet (saws shorter than 34
feet require that
the electrical cabinet for VariSharp be placed outside
the saw loop as shown in the illustration above).
