Panel Saw And Its Different Types

Whether you work in a warehouse, distribution centre, campus configuration or other installation environment, the lifting and movement of objects comes into play. Tall, long, and narrow objects are difficult to move or load on a truck. The design of the car allows users to operate it as a hand truck in a car. However, unlike hand trucks, the object being transported can move in any direction, which makes long objects easier to move. Once loaded and tilted back, the load on the Scoop Dolly remains stable without the need to be supported by the operator. The truck supports the weight of the load, not the operator.

Different Types Of Panel Saw Which Is Mostly Used

Scoop Dolly

The Dolly Scoop has tilt legs that can be adjusted to vary the angle of the load to safely maintain the centre of gravity on the platform. The platform has unidirectional rotating wheels so that the load can move in any direction.

With the addition of optional levered handles, wider objects can be transported on the platform, such as heavy furniture, appliances, etc. And, with the addition of the ramp wheels, the platform slides over the transitions of the loading dock to or from cargo trucks.

Thinking of investing in a vertical panel saw? In this article we explore the advantages and disadvantages of vertical panel saws (also known as wall saws) to help you make an informed decision.

A vertical panel saw is an increasingly popular alternative to the more traditional sliding table panel saws. Space saving, accurate, easy and safe to use.

Panel Saw

For those readers who have not used a panel saw or are not familiar with the general concept, most machines consist of three key parts; frame, saw beam, saw head. The panels rest vertically upright while cutting. The design allows placing the machine against a wall, hence the name, wall saw.

Elcon vertical panel saw frame

Lighter mobile designs are available that have a fixed saw beam, which requires the panel to pass through the machine. We are focusing on industrial saws for this article that works similarly. The panel is static, fixed against the machine, while the head of the saw and the beam of the saw move vertically and horizontally, respectively, making each cut.

The main frame is placed vertically (or rather tilts back a few degrees from the vertical) and provides support for the panel (see more information on panel support below). Acting as the basis of all the other components of the machine, the resistance of the frame is fundamental for the precision of the saw.

The frame also incorporates one or more adjustable folding abutments mounted on the left half of the machine that is fixed when cutting vertically.

When cut vertically, the beam can be locked in several positions incrementally on the right side of the machine. If used together with the folding stop, the saw-to-fence capacity can be increased by 1 m for each incremental position. Have a look at our panel saw menu for additional information.

Finally, the head of the saw is mounted on the beam of the saw and traverses vertically. It can be oriented in vertical or horizontal position depending on the cut required. The saw blade itself retracts behind the main saw guard, allowing the beam and head to pass over the panels while they are loaded and placed, before immersing themselves in the material to make the cut.
