Beam Saws are a crucial tool to boost production. Cast iron, cast aluminum, box tubing beam, and a steel frame create the body of the 1,500-pound Beam Saw.

Industrial manufacturing companies use this hefty machine for shift work, operating two to three shifts daily in an industrial setting.  Beam Saws are frequently found in the following industries:

  • Curtain wall
  • Logging
  • Trusses
  • Aluminum windows and doors
  • Aluminum extrusions
  • Metal decking
  • Awning
  • Metal roofing

In addition to the many hours this saw can “work,” it can make long 64″ cross cuts. Its powerful motor lets the Beam Saw cut several pieces of material simultaneously. Add an Electronic Powered Cross Feed on the Beam Saw, and it becomes a semi-automatic machine. Include a Pneumatic Clamping System to customize the cutting process further.

The Beam Saw comes standard with a manual chain crank carriage feed and a T-slot extruded metal table with manual clamps. Simply push the button to cut.
