Vertical Panel Saw Series


Your new BALA vertical panel saw is shipped as two components lagged and
strapped to a wooden skid. The saw carriage assembly has been separated from the
machine table for shipping purposes. Carefully check the shipment for any damage
and make the appropriate notation on the shipping bill of lading as necessary. If
damage is found immediately notify the shipping company for inspection and claim.
1. Move machine to the location where it will be installed. Remove lag bolts and
straps from skid. Use the following lift points for the machine frame. Lift and move the
machine with a fork truck or crane. It is recommended that you use shackles (which
can be purchased at a local hardware store; also called U-bolts) to connect to the
lifting points if your straps are too thick to bring through the loops at the back lifting
points.

Mounting the Gantry to the Machine


11. Using a fork truck or crane, you will need to pick secure strapping and lift points.
Observe the following lift points based on fork truck and crane recommendation.
12. Fork truck (for low-ceiling) lift point:

Use a second strap secured to the boom of the fork truck as a safety strap so the
strapping cannot slide off the end of the forks. Also recommended: have two spotters
stand at each side of gantry to make sure the gantry comes up evenly when lifting it
with the fork truck.

13. Crane method lift point (and/or for those with enough ceiling height to lift with a
fork truck). Lift point is at the top end of the gantry as shown (right). Above the
motor/carriage, but below the top portion of the gantry that sets along the top channel
of the machine. Choke the strap as shown.

14. Before lifting, make sure the straps are secured tightly to the forks of the fork
truck (or the crane). Move the gantry/crate on the floor level as close to the machine
base as possible. (No lifting has been done yet.)

18. When both bearings are aligned with the rail, carefully and gently set down the
gantry on the machine. You may need two personnel on either side of the gantry to
watch and help guide its landing. Make sure the bearings stay in line so they lay on
either side of the upper rail as it is mounted.

21. Remove the two counterweight bolts on right and left side of gantry. You will find
these approximately 60 cm up from ground level. The saw carriage is now ready to
move up and down. Save these bolts for future use. If you are going to move your
panel saw to a new location in the future, first you need to install the counter
weight stabilizing bolts before removing the gantry from the machine base. When
reinstalling your machine: Always place the gantry on top of machine base first
before removing the counterweight bolts.

22. Turn the carriage brake (lever) counterclockwise to release the carriage. Check
for smooth carriage travel. Always re-lock (turn clockwise) the carriage brake when
finished.

23. Remove the triangular plate with two wheels from electrical box on the back
of the machine. Place the two wheels in the aluminum channel on the top of the
machine to the left of the saw carriage gantry. Bolt to the bracket of the arm on
the underside of the gantry.

24. Locate the electrical junction box. Remove the two mounting bolts on the
backside of the top portion of the gantry. Remove the cover of the electrical junction
box. Mount the box to the machine (back of gantry) and tighten the two bolts inside
the box, securing the whole box to the back of the gantry.

25. Disconnect the ties which secured the black dust hose and blue air lines to the
back of the machine for shipment. (Only VSA models will have the blue air lines.)
26. Bring all hose/wires up to the top of the gantry. Keep the hose and wiring on the
outside of all leg supports for the machine; they will need to be able to travel the
length of the machine with the gantry and not get caught or snagged on the legs.
27. Connect the back hose at top of gantry to dust collection transition. TIP: You may
need to loosen the hose clamp. The hose goes inside the lip of the dust collection
transition (from the front of the machine). You may need a second set of hands to
hold the hose as you work it into the dust collection transition. Tighten hose clamp
when done.

28. Exclusively for the composite models:


connect the blue air lines to the quickconnect air fittings (see right). There are
two connectors on the back of the gantry for hook up.

29. In the electrical box, connect electrical wiring through the strain relief connector
into the terminal box (wiring is fed through holes on the bottom of the box.) They are
each labeled numerically. Connect each to its corresponding connector. (Connect
identical numbers.)
30. Remove wrapping of the dust collection bag. (Located at hip-level below the
electrical junction box.)

31. Exclusively for composite models:


Air hook up. Hook up location just to the right of the dust collection bag.

32. For your locally licensed electrician: hook up 3 Phase power to main power
panel. The yellow is neutral (ground line). Connect Phase to 3 consecutive slots from
the left, and connect neutral to 4th slot.

Wooden (dpme) Models Blade Removal for Rotation Test


These next steps will instruct you how to properly remove the scoring assembly and
main blade to test for the correct rotation inside the blade case. This test is not safe
with the blades on the machine. Remove blades prior to performing this test. Do NOT
perform this test with blades on the machine. Correct rotation must be confirmed
before running the motor with the blades & safety covers in place.
33. The motor case shows two arrows: the top arrow shows the correct direction of
the main blade motor rotation, the bottom arrow shows the direction of the scoring
blade.
34. Take off the blade case cover and, remove the saw blades in this following
sequence.
a) Release the spring at the top of the scoring assembly.
b) Remove arbor bolt using an Allen wrench (8 mm).
c) Remove scoring assembly.
d) Remove the main saw blade.

35. When you start the motor by pushing the green button, be sure that the arbor is
turning in the same direction as the indication arrow.
36. If it is turning in the wrong direction, that means you need to swap 2 of the
Phases in the main power panel to correct the direction of the blade motor and arbor.
37. Once the blade motor and arbor are turning in the correct direction, you may shut
down the machine and put the main saw blade, scoring assembly, spring, arbor bolt
and motor cover on again in designated sequence.
38. For fine tuning, of alignment; put a sheet of plywood/fiberboard on metal wheels
and cut it from top at 1 cm horizontally.

39. This time, place the newly cut part on wheels and make sure that it rests on
wheels completely. If the panel does not rest on all wheels completely (also on the
wheels at the middle part), adjust the middle foot up or down accordingly. Concave or
convex alignment problems can be avoided this way.
