  • Description

    Production-level performance. 8.5′ sliding table, double-hung cast iron saw unit with scoring, rearward tilting spindle for use with power feeder, digital-mechanical readouts, and many other key features. The new saw unit closed loop structure is made of a heavy cast iron and is supported firmly under the table by two lateral supports in a crescent shape. These solutions give strength and rigidity, guaranteeing perfect cutting results. The saw unit can be equipped, on request, with scoring blade for perfect cutting even on veneered panels. The scoring blade is an optional available in two versions: with belt transmission from the main motor and with an independent motor 0.75 HP (0.55 kW). The maximum diameter allowed for the main saw is 315 mm with scoring blade mounted.

    Optimal support also to larger pieces, with the sliding table 360 mm wide. Exceptional precision and smoothness: to secure the guides it is not used glue, since the thickness could affect sliding. They are secured with a procedure of aluminium riveting. Maximum stability and rigidity in all working conditions, thanks to a large spindle moulder column made entirely of cast iron. The 4 standard speed are ideal for any type of machining, from moulding to routing and tenoning, with the possibility to fit tools up to 275 mm of diameter.The spindle is surrounded by a cast iron “cup” to protect the internal mechanical components from shavings and sawdust.

    As option it is available the spindle moulder hood that uses a system for adjusting the guides with a rack and it is fitted with a mechanical digital readout. Thanks to the system of memories the hood can be removed and re-positioned without losing the machining position. The maximum tool diameter during moulding operations is 240 mm.
