HOLLISTON, MA — A pneumatic saw and clamp system that eliminates torch cutting and lets users produce clean accurate cuts on thick steel plate fast with no heat affect zone (HAZ) is available from ESCO Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.
ESCO’s APS-438 Air-Powered Saw and Quick-Clamp sets up fast using a 2-inch wide steel track and has two wedge-style clamps that attach to steel plate up to 15-inches wide by 3.5-inches thick and accepts the saw. Eliminating torch cutting and the resulting HAZ, this saw mounts rigidly onto a bracket that glides along the track on four V-grooved steel wheels to make straight, clean accurate cuts.
Ideally suited for the on-site fabrication of structures, tanks, ships, and related products, ESCO’s APS-438 Air-Powered Saw and Quick-Clamp can cut steel plate and highly alloyed materials. The 3 HP air-powered saw provides a 4-3/8-inch cutting depth, has a cut line indicator and gauge to simplify alignment, and the steel track comes in 5- to 15-foot sections.
