Understanding How A Beam Saw Works

August 20, 2017 2 min read

The Beam Saw has been a valuable member of the woodworking machinery family for many years. Providing perfect precision and making working on cutting pieces effortless, it is the perfect product for you no matter what type of woodworking your business does.

Here at Calderbrook Woodwork Machinery we understand exactly how a Beam Saw works but do you? Read on to find out how they work, what their uses are and why you need one:

What Are Beam Saws?

These saws have a large blade used to cut different sized logs into beams. Often using circular blades which are available in a variety of different styles, beam saws are useful for a range of different jobs. They are the most effective method of precise panel cutting with modern software that allows the saw to gain maximum yields from the materials.

How Do They Work?

With intelligent handling and precision cutting, these machines make effortless work of large volume panel sizing.

A moving carriage saw and a powerful pressure beam hold the material in place. There is a rear fence which holds and moves the material to the position which is controlled by computerisation. This allows both physical and technical aspects to work together to produce great products and lasting results.

The saw carriage of the beam saw produces high feed rates with large horsepower motors. This allows a scoring saw which is incorporated into the design to cut laminated and veneered materials.

The beam saws available at Calderbrook Woodworking Machinery offer optional software equipment which can work at a range of different angles and they are also available in compact models as well.

What Are They Used For?

Beam saws are one of the most effective methods of precise panel cutting. The beams it is used to cut are typically used to construct everything from the frameworks of buildings to kitchen cabinets.

With semi-automatic adjustments, the saw can be used to work with a range of different tasks all in one day, although some of them require manual manipulation.
