Pedrini has introduced the M940 CN bridge saw. The cast-iron bridge and shoulders constitute an extremely rigid assembly withstanding, without any deformation to trolley weight and cutting stress as well as allowing for the use of fixed covers for the protection of transversal sliding guides all along their entire length, the company reports. The coupling surfaces for the shoulders and the housings for rack, guide rods and synchronization shaft have been machined directly into the bridge structure.

The large diameter, hardened, ground and chrome-plated guide rods, are fastened along the two distant bridge edges.

The pinion/rack couplings guarantee movement precision of the bridge, while the compensation elastic devices assure the perfect operation of the disk when carrying out slow lateral travel of "spatula" cutting.

Spindle supports, tilting slide, main slide and saddle --with relevant guides and motors --form the powerful assembly of the tool holder trolley. The trolley allows the "step cutting" with up to 90 degrees tool tilting. The electrical panel protected in the accordance to IP54 is equipped with an air-conditioning unit, which maintains a safe internal temperature.

The control panel mounted in a convenient and safe position on a revolving support, comprises the industrial PC. The machine is operable both with the automatic cycles supplied as accessories and with externally obtained ISO code programs (for example from CAD-CAM), transferable from floppy disk or through local net connections.

Proper software will enable carrying out curved trajectories on XYZ triad, by splitting them into interpolated linear sections.

Through the "Touch-Screen" or DXF files (AutoCAD), it is possible to insert the drawing of the shapes to be carried out. Circle No. 241
