The term sawing
involves all techniques of material removal permitting to truncate a workpiece regardless of its material.
The choice of sawing material depends primarily on the characteristics of the element to be cut.
The category of sawing machine tools includes saws
and chain saws
The saw allows the cutting up according to a cutting plan. In the industry, the cutter is motorized. The operations can be automated with the integration of a digital control. It is used, for example, for the cutting up of metal tubes, of bars into plots.
There are several subfamilies of saws: the circular saw
, which is based on the cutting action of a toothed saw with a generally tilting head block, the bandsaw (rotation of a steel band on itself) for plastic, ferrous or wood materials and the horizontal or vertical panels saw (for cutting up wood panels by means of a circular saw).
Saws can be manual, semi-automatic, automatic (programmable forward and lowering bar saw).
, Petit Jean Henri, Rusch, Ultra, DanobatGroup, Ficep, Voortman, and GravoTech Marking are reputed manufacturers of industrial saws.
Along with saws, machine tools like chainsaws
are present in this category of equipment for cutting up operations.
Again, several sub-families of systems are distinguished, including disc chain saws, thumbnail groove chain saws and bit chain saws.
, O+P, Emmegi Group, Hitachi Koki, Sidamo, and Makita are among the leading manufacturers of chain saws.
Whether chain saws or different types of saws, the machine tools used for sawing are available on the second-hand market
. Those checked by RDMO workshops offer a level of quality and performance close to the new.
