MECAL SW 553 ARGUS Double Miter Saw

Double head mitre saw with motorized right head positioning. Left cutting unit is stationary. Blade feed direction is from back to forward. The blades tilt automatically at any angle between 22.5° outwards to 90° by means of pneumatic cylinders. Adjustment of the tilting angle must be done manually moving a mechanical reference stop. Equipped with horizontal and vertical pneumatic clamps, safety guards and spray mist tool lubrication.

Available single stroke cutting lengths: 5000mm (16.4′) and 6000mm (20′)

Max cutting lengths with repeated strokes: 10m (32.8′) and 12m (40′)
