A crosscut saw is a rotating circular saw directly connected to a motor. It is an industrial machine for cutting materials on a table.
It is used for cutting long, large pieces of wood (mainly square timber) or aluminum, and is usually used with a long, horizontal stand.
The diameter of the circular saw is usually from 400 to 600 mm, and the cutting point can be determined either visually by a scale or automatically by entering the dimensions into a digital device.
The crosscut saws are machine tool similar to the circular saw, but while the circular saw can only cut straight, the crosscut saws can slide and cut freely.
This is why crosscut saws are used in many woodworking shops, architectural wood shops, metalworking companies, and a wide range of other businesses.
Some sizes can fit on a tabletop, so they are used not only in mass-production factories, but also in private woodworking studios and ateliers.
There are two main types of crosscut saws: manual feed type and automatic feed type.
In the manual feed type crosscut saws, a rotary saw directly connected to a motor is moved back and forth, vertically and horizontally, and cut the material placed on the table.
When the hand is released, the rotary saw returns to its original position.
On the other hand, in the automatic feed type crosscut saws, the rotary saw is attached to the motorized rotary shaft and the saw is moved by stepping on the pedal to cut the work piece.
The width of the cut (distance traveled by the work piece) is adjustable, as is the speed at which the saw is moved.
Unlike other circular saws, the crosscut saw's cutting method is a down-cut type, so chips are scattered in front of the saw when cutting the work piece, allowing for safe and efficient work.
There is also a model called an optoelectronic jumping crosscut saw, which can cut off only the part of the material that is unnecessary by drawing a line with a special chalk in advance and using a special detection device, enabling more efficient and accurate cutting.
