The Pressta-Eisele “GS 550” is an up-cut saw ideal for applications such as curtain walls, commercial windows, storefronts, railings as well as industrial aluminum profile cutting. The “GS 550” features a 7.5Kw motor, thus it is ideal to cut thick extrusions.

An hydro-pneumatic cylinder ensures the precise raise of the blade. Four pneumatic cylinders (two vertical and two horizontal) hold the extrusion firm in place for the maximum precision of the cut. Four independent pressure regulators allow the independent adjustment of each clamp.


To perform the cut with the “GS 550” up-cut saw, the operator must hold simultaneously two pushbuttons with both hands. As soon as the cut is performed and one button is released, the blade descends below the table level.


Interlock safety switches are part of the standard safety features as well as the top hood that provides full protection to the operator.
