        Bases of the quotation

        Mains voltage: In accordance with EN 60204; 400 V
        three-phase current (-10 %, +6 %); Control voltage 24 V-DC

        Mains frequency: 50 Hz (-1 %, +1 %; transient –2 %, +2 %)

        Type of mains: TN mains according to IEC 364/VDE 0100

        The power is supplied from the mains to the switching
        cabinets including advance fusing by the customer. The position of the switch
        cabinet is to be seen from the lay-out.

        measures against indirect contact:
         Over-current protector (zero balancing). The mains supply of the
        operator (size and characteris-tic of the main fuse selected as well as the
        total imped-ance of PE and outer conductor in the supply line to the machine)
        has to be designed in such a way that the per-missible shutdown time in the
        event of an error is not exceeded. The use of a differential current
        switch in the mains in-coming supply is not permitted.

        Safety requirements: The offered machine corresponds with the valid
        safety requirements according to the machinery directive 2006/42/EG

        Subject to the individual conditions of use and to the
        in-stallation site, additional equipment such as fences, safety light beams and
        barriers in the area of material supply and cut-off removal may be necessary.
        Possibly, such additional equipments are not included in our scope of supply
        and must therefore be procured by the buyer.

        Delivery terms: Possibly valid company’s own operating material
        regula-tions have not been taken into consideration when work-ing out the
        offer, unless they are specifically mentioned in the quotation. The machine
        will be equipped with proven components selected by KASTO. If you insist on the
        ob-servance of your operating material regulations we kindly ask you to make
        these regulations available to us for working out the appropriate offer. After
        placing the order, any specifications can no longer be considered. This is also
        valid for so called fire protection regulations.

        Cutting accuracy: On perfect conditions with perfect tools the
        deviation of cut is within ±0.1 mm per 100 mm cutting height with standard
        steel qualities. For material with a perfect geo-metric surface an accuracy of
        length of cut-off pieces in accordance with ISO 2768-1, degree of accuracy fine
        is achievable with individual bars and cut-off pieces longer 6 mm. When using
        uneven, twisted or burred initial ma-terial, the achievement of the mentioned
        cutting accura-cies is restricted. The tolerance of length of cut-off pieces is
        valid for machines with automatic material feed.


        This sawing machine is particularly suitable for easily to normally machinable materials in solid material, tubes and profiles. Only conditionally suitable are materials that are difficult to machine as well as plastics. An application up to two-shift production operation is envisaged. The specified cutting ranges and performance characteristics must be observed. The use of uneven, twisted or burred starting material can severely impair the cutting accuracy. For more detailed information on the correct use of the machine, please refer to the operating instructions. Disregarding this area of application and/or General Terms and Conditions can lead to the warranty claims becoming void.
