The Tiger 352 SX is a new automated saw that hosts a number of MEP’s latest developments in their range of vertical sawing machines.
This semi-automatic vertical sawing machine incorporates four of what could be considered new improvements to this particular method of cutting.
Cutting from 60° left to 45° right, the unit has a vertically sliding head system operating on recirculating ball screws, while its new coaxial cylinder has a bypass valve for fast approach and a linear transducer readying the head position.
Situated on a steel base, the rotating table castings can rotate on a centre pin with axial bearing to allow higher precision on the cutting angle set and ensure better chip evacuation from the working area.
Another new aspect of the technology is a transversal positioning and clamping system which having been tested in bigger sawing machines was found to be a good advancement in positioning and clamping.
These four advancements complement a central control panel that programmes the semi-automatic cutting cycle according to the dimensions of the material being cut and checks the machine functions shown on the LED display.
