Precise panel division

Portal saws

In the mineral fibre industry, for splitting cement-bonded panels, when processing gypsum and insulation boards as well as for plywood and more – the portal saws from Anthon are suitable for diverse materials. Cutting heights of up to about 260 mm are also possible for special panel handling requirements – thanks to high-precision linear guide systems and state-of-the-art CNC controls.

An automatic adjustment of the position of the individual sawing units allows for an extremely flexible panel layout.

By using several longitudinal and cross-cutting saws, extremely high dividing capacities can be achieved.

The lateral adjustment of the saw and hogger units is fully automatic via servo drive and rack/gear wheel, using precision measuring racks. For particularly narrow cutting widths, Anthon also supplies linear drives for lateral saw positioning as an alternative.

By using chippers on the outer units, no separate waste removal is necessary. The position is detected via an encoder mounted directly on the servo motor. Based on the cutting pattern data, the cutting positions of the sawing units are automatically defined and adjusted.

The sawing units are mounted on linear guides on both sides, thus meeting even the highest precision requirements. Sawing units and scoring saws are each equipped with their own drives, from which the respective saw shaft is driven by means of a toothed belt. It is possible to pre-select optimum circumferential speeds, as the drive motors of the sawing units are frequency-controlled. The scoring saw can be adjusted laterally as well as in height by motor, whereby the high/low adjustment ensures the setting after the saw blade has been sharpened, while the lateral adjustment enables the correct setting to the main saw blade. For changing the saw blade, all saw units can be moved out to the side.

Areas of application
Dividing systems in the insulation board/building materials industry
Cut-to-size lines with precise finish cut in the furniture industry
Compact stand-alone solution for limited installation space
Portal saws are available as rip saws and crosscut saws or as a combination
Depending on the power, the saws are available with 1 or 2 gantries (angular arrangement).
