There are also many types of multi-blade saws, such as log multi-blade saws, square wood multiple-blade saws, and upper and lower multiple-blade saws, which are also divided into crawler type, belt type, and shaft type.
Log multi-blade saw
Log multi-blade saw is to saw the log into plates. Use a slim, small-gauge woodworking saw blade for light loads and material savings.
The feeding system is mostly left, right, up and down car drive shafts, which rotate synchronously, also called a coupling, with a large feeding force, and it is not easy to get stuck in the wood, and the log is not easy to deviate when fed with its coupling.
Because log multi-blade saw are mostly controlled by couplings, it can prevent track wear, rust, belt aging and scratches, excellent moisture-proof design, so that the main shaft bearings are better moisture-proof when working, and reduce saw blade burning. possible. Most of the spindles of log multi-blade saw are relatively thick, and have been professionally inspected by dynamic balancing machines, with smaller vibration and sound rays.
Feed one log with about 10-50cm diameter and 50-2000cm length into machine; get 8-9 pieces planks or panels with different dimension after 10s, this is the most valuable function—high efficiency.
Log Multi Rip Saw was considered as one of the most advanced log processing machine, feeding smooth, high efficiency, lower consumption, safer for workers, lower price with high value. Each log multi rip saw can get 20-30sqm finished-product (plank or panel) in every single day (about 8 hours), 4-7 times compare with traditional band saw. So called tiger machine in China, means eating material fast and big eater.
All saw blade place inside of machine, covered by outer shell, highly improved the protection for workers.
How Does a Rip Saw Machine Work?
The rip saw machine works by using a high-speed electric motor to drive the blade, which is attached to either the right or left side of the saw base. This allows for multiple depths and angles of cut, based on the preferences of the user. The blade moves back and forth rapidly in a sideward motion across the wood, followed by pressure from adjustable rollers that push down onto the wood with every stroke to ensure clean and even cuts.
Safety Precautions When Using a Rip Saw Machine
When operating a rip saw machine, it’s important to follow safety precautions. Always ensure that the machine is properly shielded and guarded, and that the power is turned off before making adjustments or repairs. Be sure to also wear protective equipment such as gloves and safety glasses when handling blades or cutting material. Additionally, if you are talking with someone else in the area, always keep communication volume low to avoid accidental start-ups of the rip saw machine.
Tips and Techniques for Mastering the Rip Saw Machine
To get the most out of your rip saw machine, practice with scrap material and sample projects. This will help you become accustomed to how the saw should sound and how it will move when in operation. Additionally, adjust the blade depth setting according to the material and project size that you are cutting. Finally, be sure to regularly clean and maintain the rip saw machine, including oiling bearings and replacing worn blades and other internal components as needed.
