Vertical Toolroom Saws Can Handle Variety of Workpiece Sizes and Shapes

Combining a variable speed drive in a rugged unitized welded steel frame and solid cast iron table ensure that Palmgren’s Vertical Toolroom Saws are well equipped for a variety of jobs.

The construction enables the saw to easily handle contour sawing, beveling, slicing, ripping, stack cutting and cutting off various materials from aluminum, brass to steel. The variable speed drive system allows for quick, easy speed changes so the operator can match the correct speed to the blade and cutting application. The design enhances productivity and versatility to any metalworking operation.

The extra-large cast iron titling table on the #6883119 Vertical Toolroom Saw from Palmgren can handle a wide variety of workpiece sizes and shapes.

Related Glossary Terms

  • metalworking


    Any manufacturing process in which metal is processed or machined such that the workpiece is given a new shape. Broadly defined, the term includes processes such as design and layout, heat-treating, material handling and inspection.

  • sawing


    Machining operation in which a powered machine, usually equipped with a blade having milled or ground teeth, is used to part material (cutoff) or give it a new shape (contour bandsawing, band machining). Four basic types of sawing operations are: hacksawing (power or manual operation in which the blade moves back and forth through the work, cutting on one of the strokes); cold or circular sawing (a rotating, circular, toothed blade parts the material much as a workshop table saw or radial-arm saw cuts wood); bandsawing (a flexible, toothed blade rides on wheels under tension and is guided through the work); and abrasive sawing (abrasive points attached to a fiber or metal backing part stock, could be considered a grinding operation).

  • 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).
