Tabor 30” Abrasive saw as designed to cut hot stainless bars directly from the oven. Because of distance constraints, standard saws were not capable of cutting material arriving at the saw at 1800 degrees F. This saw has a specially designed cooled head to keep the bearings running continually in a hostile environment. A specially designed hydraulic system was needed to purge and rapidly cool the returning glycol solution.
The saw moves forward across the clamping systems cutting the bars and the head then index’s upwards, returns to start position and automatically lowers to the next cutting height. Wheel wear is monitored by a fiber optic switch and a PLC,that automatically lowers the saw head to compensate for wheel wear.
The saw operates with a 30” abrasive wheel and 150hp motor and has its own integral dust collection system. This saw can be produced with wheel diameters up to 60”
