Kalamazoo Machine Tool says its Model H230 Utility Saw is small enough to be economical but heavy enough for light production, toolroom, job shop or maintenance applications. The saw is capable of mitering 45 degrees or less to the left and 60 degrees or less to the right. This is said to permit a wider range of cutting angles without swinging the workpiece out across the work floor.
Available saw configurations include manual and AutoCut with blade speeds of 115 fpm and 230 fpm and AutoCut with infinitely variable blade speeds from 65 to 320 fpm. All models feature a 1-hp TEFC motor, a ¾" × 99" blade with solid carbide blade guides and full guarding, an enclosed transmission, a quick-clamping/quick-adjusting vise and a full re-circulating coolant system. Available options include in feed and out feed conveyors and a mobile attachment designed to allow the machine to be moved quickly and easily.
According to the company, a custom AutoCut operation permits repeatable, accurate cutting with a push of a button. The blade starts at the pre-set rate, coolant comes on and the saw frame comes down at the pre-set selected rate. At the end of the cut, everything shuts off and the operator can raise the saw frame, unclamp the workpiece and clamp the stock for the next cut.
