Wet abrasive saw engineered for quality testing of foundry castings - TheFabricator.com

The Kalamazoo Industries model K36 wet abrasive saw is designed for foundries that need to cut very large heat-treated castings for porosity inspection. The saw features a 50-HP motor driving a 36-in. abrasive wheel with an abrasive composition engineered for the specific alloy being cut. Gearmotor oscillation moves the saw arm slightly back and forth while cutting through the workpiece, resulting in a faster cut with no burning or distortion of the castings.

The abrasive saw has a 1.75-in. arbor; semiautomatic, air/oil, variable 0- to 12-FPM power downfeed for rapid feed advance; and a controlled, repeatable feed rate. The machine has a T-slot table for clamp fixturing and an air chain vise, with a jaw vise optional. Other options include an enclosed cabinet, side curtain guards, and an adjustable back fence for casting placement.
