Giant Saw

Two strong welded steel columns support and guide vertical movement of bridge of large dimensions made in special cast iron.

Structure given added stability/reduced vibration/less resonance thanks to ribs in cast iron.

Maximum blade size 3500mm



  • Built in welded steel with giant blade for extra cutting depth, a robust machine built on two columns that support and guide the vertical cutting unit movement along the cast iron bridge.
  • Manual setting of limit switches avoided because of encoder for setting cutting length.
  • Rev. Variable and encoder for cutting unit traverse. Different cutting depths can be set from terminal.
  • Blade-head unit moved horizontally by servomotor coupled to gear motor and rack and pinion system.
  • Speed electronically regulated from control panel.
  • Vertical movement on two precision screws with two worm screws.
  • Two counter-screws for safety.
  • One-speed step-cutting motor for rotation of screws which are synchronised by connecting shaft; encoder for positioning.
  • Main transmission by high performance tracks with oil-bathed gear box.
  • Shaft rev. changes by pulley (standard) or rev variable (optional).
  • Centralised lubrication. IP 55 electrical cabinet. Control panel with keyboard and real-time display of operator instructions, alarms and operating parameters
