The guide arms on the HEM Plate Saws are the toughest in the business. The fixed guide is mounted directly to the massive arm weldment. The adjustable guide, which moves at the touch of a switch, slides along precision ways, providing a rigid mount for accurate cuts in any material.
Precision-ground carbide blade guides keep the blade in perfect position. Designed for long life, the guides provide the most accurate system for blade alignment in the industry.
The band motor and gearbox are mounted in a single unit at the top of the saw arm, away from the chips, debris and coolant. The ten horsepower motor delivers power to the band wheels through a totally-enclosed worm gear drive.
The centrally located control panel combines manual and automatic controls for operator convenience. The console swings in a full 90-degree arc, allowing the operator to move the console to the position most comfortable - and most productive.
