Definition: Saws

Saws are standard machines for the wood industry and woodworking. They are used in acquiring the wooden materials, and for the later stages in which it is developed the end product. This is why there are many types, including simple handsaws and powerful circular saws for lumber mills. Countless types of saws have been developed to efficiently process wood components such as furniture, windows or doors. Among them there are band saws, chopsaws, sliding table saws, miter saws and panel saws. At Surplex you will find a wide selection of used saws, also modern models!

Saw machines in woodworking

Saw machines are typically intended as woodworking machines. They are used in acquiring the wooden materials from the original source (the forest), and for the later stages in which it is developed into the end product. Wood saws can cut through tree trunks in any direction to enable the ideal starting material. A variety of wood cutting machines have been developed to enable industrial operations to efficiently process any volume of wood into every product imaginable.

Definition of saws

Saws work by the processes of dividing and machining. They use a toothed blade that is pushed into and across the material via circular or oscillating movements. The saw blade can be flat or round. Circular saws can achieve higher sawing speeds and feature a mechanically simpler construction, however, their cutting depth is always limited to a maximum of 40-45% of the saw blade diameter. This means greater cutting depths always require very large blades, which makes handling them relatively difficult.

As such, bandsaws are the primary choice in applications requiring deep cuts into the material. In timber harvesting, the chainsaw is the most widespread and also features heavily in later stages of timber production and preparation.

Types of saws and peripheral woodworking devices

The wood is harvested from the forest, cut to size in the sawmill, and sent on for further processing in the carpentry workshop. The further the raw timber is along the path to end product, the higher the precision that is required of the wood cutter machine. This is why each stage of the processing chain has its own preferred woodsaws, from either the circular saw, bandsaw or chainsaw product ranges.

Bandsaws

The sawing unit within a bandsaw consists of a loop-shaped metal belt with teeth on one side. This metal loop is clamped between a drive roller and tensioning roller.

Bandsaws are driven electrically and are available in a wide range of sizes depending on the intended application. In the sawmill, they are used for trimming logs lengthwise into planks and boards. Once cut into thin boards, they can be turned into planks through a number of side-cuts using a circular saw.

In carpentry workshops, their main use is for cutting long beams into whatever width is desired. They are technically simple and reliable machines.

Well-known manufacturers of bandsaws include:


Scroll saws

Scroll saws are a variation of the bandsaw design. Instead of a flat belt, or ‘band’, they use a thin cutting wire, which enables operators to create intricate curves and cut out workpieces radially from a given material. Scroll saws are the industrial equivalent of fret saws.

Popular manufacturers of scroll saws include BLITZ, FROMMIA, HEGNER and SCHEPPACH.

Combined trimming saws

Combined trimming saws make it possible to machine board materials on both sides within a single work cycle. This is most beneficial when it comes to batch processing precise workpieces where it increases efficiency and productivity.

On a technical level, they consist of a circular saw with two saw blades, which can be very precisely aligned with each other. In recent years, however, they have been largely replaced by panel-dividing systems and sliding table saws. They are no longer produced today but can be found on the second-hand market at very affordable prices.

The best-known manufacturers of combined trimming saws are BÄUERLE, BARBERAN and OMGA.

Sliding table saws are the standard tool of choice for carpenters and joineries. They make it possible to create extremely precise, linear cuts in panels and board materials. Sliding table saws feature a large range of settings and options, such as for maximum/minimum panel length/breadth, as well as producing precise mitres and angles.

Sliding table saws were invented by the German company ALTENDORF, which is still the market leader in this sector. A range of other companies have also turned to this machine and supply the market a wide selection of products.

The most prestigious makers of sliding table saws are:


Mitre saws

Mitres are 90° cuts into wooden profiles and strips used to create precise joints, which are widely used in parquet and laminate flooring. Mitre saws are one of the key tools of interior outfitters and the term can encompass both mitre and cross-cut saws as the machine can offer a combination of both functions.

Mitre and cross-cut saws are generally small and light enough for them to be transported from site to site. But there are also heavier, stationary mitre saws intended for carpentry workshops, which are often combination mitre saws capable of creating mitre cuts on both sides of a profile in a single work cycle.

Popular manufacturers of mitre saws include ELUMATEC, FOM, RAPID and STRIFFLER.

Cross-cut saws

Cross-cut saws are used for shortening long materials in a variety of ways, but in contrast to normal circular saws, they can only cut the short side of a slat or narrow board to the desired angle. However, the angle can be adjusted in terms of both width and depth.

A cross-cut saw comprises a machine table featuring a rotary and adjusting unit for the saw blade and a return mechanism arranged above the table. Cross-cutting involves clamping a workpiece onto the work table, adjusting the circular saw to the desired parameters, and pushing it across the material using a hand-operated lever. The result: precise cross-cuts.

Some of the best-known manufacturers of cross-cut saw are ELU, MAKITA, METABO and OMS.

Panel saws

Panel saws are used for efficiently dividing up large panel/board materials. They are used by furniture builders and are frequently found in hardware stores.

Panel saws generally operate using one or more circular saw units and can be extended with extra equipment, such as a turnover station. This allows panels and boards to be processed on both sides and then stacked once the procedure is complete.

HOLZMA, HOMAG, GIBEN, SCHELLING and STRIEBIG count amongst the best manufacturers of panel saws.

Multi-blade saws

Multi-blade saws enable boards, panels and chipboard to be simultaneously cut to the desired size. Depending on the type of machine, they can produce a range of strips in one or several widths in just one work cycle. Multi-blade saws are primarily used to saw wood with thin dimensions and cannot handle materials which are more than a few centimetres thick.

Popular manufacturers of multi-blade saws include RAIMANN and ABMI.

Equipment for loading & stacking in sawing machines

The efficient processing of tree trunks requires the highest performing types of transport system. The most widespread are roller tracks, conveyor belts and turnover stations, which ensure the right materials are in the correct place for ongoing processing in a sawmill or panel wood cutting machine. A wood saw also generally needs a way of clamping or holding the material in place, i.e. via magnets and gripping mechanisms, but more fragile panels and boards are frequently held via vacuum lifters, which ensure no damage to the wood.

The main producers of feeding and stacking machines for wood cutting saws are FRILUMAC, RBO WINSTORE and SIRIO.

Complete sawmills

Sawmills are heavy-duty pieces of equipment which break down tree trunks into boards and planks. They also collect all the wood chips produced and forward them for onward processing (depending on chip quality). Sawmills are also often equipped with veneer peeling machines, which enable the tree trunks to be directly processed into veneer sheets. Sawmills primarily work using bandsaws and circular saws.

Popular manufacturers of complete sawmills include SERRA and BRENTA.

What should I be aware of when buying a wood saw machine?

Before looking for wood saws for sale, buyers should carefully consider what the saw will be used for since there is a large variety on offer.

Chainsaws are the best choice for harvesting timber, whereas circular saws are ideal for construction site operation. For interior furnishings, cross-cut and mitre saws can provide the best results. But, for all saws, there is one rule of thumb: quality above price. Wood cutting saws from well-known manufacturers are generally more powerful and reliable in operation, and as such, should be preferred over all other affordable in professional woodworking settings.

The best woodworking saw for a carpenter or joinery would be a sliding table saw. With these saws, the more important aspect is the equipment fitted rather than the sawing performance statistics, which particular applies when it comes to buying used saws for sale. Simple sliding table saws offer a comprehensive range of processing options, but their manual design means they are not well-suited to serial production and other large-scale manufacturing. Manufacturers today offer a range of convenient features, which makes it easy to master even the most complex applications. Used wood cutting machines also frequently feature digital support for the operator, provided the construction year of the machine is within recent decades.

In the fields of exotic- and hard wood processing, the bandsaw is king – it can cut at a continuous thickness and very low material wastage is ensured through the cutting process. Purchasers of bandsaws should first look at cutting speed and then, if machine-supported; the feed rate, which are reliable indicators of machine performance. Another key point to consider is that there are different types of bandsaw which are not compatible with every type of wood. The potential applications of each machine should be investigated.

Sawmills, on the other hand, are heavy-duty machines for roughly cutting through tree trunks. The circular saws, bandsaws and chainsaws used only offer basic cutting quality and approximate dimensional accuracy. However, they are designed to shift and process huge volumes of wood outdoor under the full force of the elements. A saw made for rough wood-cutting cannot deliver the results of a carpentry-grade machine, but their excellent reliability, strength and performance mean they are more than capable of processing very hard or damp wood.

Buying second-hand

In summary, professional woodworking saws are robust and long-lasting machines, which means major damage to the machine table or base frame is unlikely.

On a technical level, wood cutting machines are very simple: the cutting unit (a circular saw or bandsaw) is basic and can often be dismantled, cleaned and overhauled with little expense.

In recent years, wood saw machines have made great strides in terms of efficiency, which means a good supply of used machines on the second-hand market as more and more saws are replaced for higher performing models. However, thanks to the durability and quality inherent in all major saw brands, these used machines can continue to be operated productively for many years to come.
