This saw has been engineered by Turla in the finest detail with the utmost precision.During the cut phase the blade rises above the highest point of the profile. The blade cycle has an up-across, down and back motion. It rises up to cut (the necessary thickness only), cuts through the extrusions, lowers at the end of the stroke then returns under the extrusions. The blade cutting velocity is set by the operator directly on the panel view of the control panel. This provides a smooth and an accurately controlled cut stroke. All the clamps (as well as the entire machine) are equipped with noise suppression materials to reduce the noise from the cutting operation. They also distribute the pressure over a wider area and prevent swarf from spilling out. There are four (4) chip evacuation paths. Three are located in the top hood (two in the main clamps columns and one at the side), the other is in the base section.
