Semi-Automatic Circular Saws
Semi automatic circular saws are available as pivot action, vertical, upstroking, plate saws or double headed machines. Prosaw have a saw to meet your application requirements and budget.
The rigid design of a vertical circular saw may be the best option for cutting some solid steels.
Quality manufacturers that have been selected for the supply of this machinery include Bomar and Ileri.
All types of ferrous and non ferrous materials can be cut with circular saws, and when the correct type of saw and blade is used it usually gives a better surface finish than a bandsaw.
A semi-automatic circular saw fitted with a TCT blade can cut aluminium, plastic and other non ferrous solids, profiles and sections and a saw with a SHSS blade can cut mild steel, stainless steels and other metals in all types of solid and section.
A semi-automatic circular saw usually has a single button start that initiates the cycle. The blade starts, the powered vice clamps the workpiece and the cutting head feeds the blade through the material at a controlled rate. In some machines, a powered bow will lift up after the piece has been cut.
Some machines incorporate a swivelling head for easy mitre cut setup.
Machines with fast blade speeds, fitted with tungsten carbide tipped, TCT blades, are designed to cut aluminium, plastic and other non ferrous solids, profiles and sections. An abrasive saw can be used to cut solid hard metals and a cold saw with slower blade rotational speeds, using a super high speed steel blade (SHSS blades) is used to cut mild steels, stainless steels and other metals in all types of solid and section.
