Transor Filter USA shipped a new Series V2 filtration unit to Vollmer of America in accordance with the two company’s recent joint marketing agreement. The Transor V2 will be installed and provide a filtration system to serve two saw blade grinding machines at Vollmer’s state-of-the-art showroom at its U.S. headquarters in Pittsburgh. The two machines are the Vollmer CHD 270 and CHF 270 – a fully automated service center for the complete machining of carbide-tipped circular saw blades.
The Transor’s OMF (One Micron Filtration) system enables the VOLLMER machines to achieve faster cycle times and consistent, accurate finishes on complex circular saw blade tooth tops and faces, as well as saw blade side angles. According to Transor’s CEO, Irv Kaage, Vollmer customers will be able to see both these machines and the Transor Filtration unit in action when installation is complete in a couple weeks.
Vollmer produces and maintains circular saw blades and rotary tools. Transor specializes in providing One Micron filtration solutions for companies that produce cutting tools and saw blades.

- sawing machine ( saw)
sawing machine ( saw)
Machine designed to use a serrated-tooth blade to cut metal or other material. Comes in a wide variety of styles but takes one of four basic forms: hacksaw (a simple, rugged machine that uses a reciprocating motion to part metal or other material); cold or circular saw (powers a circular blade that cuts structural materials); bandsaw (runs an endless band; the two basic types are cutoff and contour band machines, which cut intricate contours and shapes); and abrasive cutoff saw (similar in appearance to the cold saw, but uses an abrasive disc that rotates at high speeds rather than a blade with serrated teeth).
