Two Full Stroking Hydraulic Vises
- Securing the material with hydraulic pressure results in better blade life, increased operator safety and a decreased risk of the material moving during the cut. Keeping the material secure reduces the chance of stripping the teeth on the saw blade.
- Reduces power consumption and results in less noise. It’s better for the environment with reduced ware on hydraulic components.
Manual Head Positioning
- Located on the control panel, the VW-18 angle can be set via use of the protractor and confirmed with digital angle display on the control panel.
Direct Down Feed (DDF)
- Allows the operator to control both feed rate and feed force, for more efficient cutting.
