The 8320 BigSaw2 from CS Unitec is the largest dry-cutting, portable metal saw on the market, according to the manufacturer. Featuring a 12.75.in.-dia., carbide-tipped blade that cuts up to 4.75 in. deep, the saw quickly processes steel, sandwich panels, conduits, and metal pipes without requiring coolant. Cuts are burr-free and cool to the touch within seconds, the company states.
The saw's 16-amp motor delivers a free cutting speed of 1,400 RPM and features motor overload protection to prevent motor burnout. With a side-mounted tilt tray for chip disposal and an integrated dust collection port for connection to an industrial vacuum, the machine can operate dust-free. An optional guide rail with clamping system is available to make precision straight cuts through sandwich panels and sheets up to 47 in. long.
