All EWD Sash Gang Saws are characterized by a time-proven, extra heavy-duty design. A clearly structured machine set-up with easily accessible component groups allows easy care and maintenance of the machine.
The flywheel assembly can be changed without dismantling the side frames. The side frames and base plate are made in an advanced, stable and torsion-resistant cast iron design, crank pins and fly wheel shaft are made from special steel.
The upper sash guides are water-cooled by a cooling unit and a closed water circuit to reduce wear and ensure smooth running of the machine. The overhang of the sash frame is automatically adjusted according to the selected feed speed. Maintenance-free spindles and worm gears adjust the overhang plates.
The sash gang saw is equipped with a hydraulic feed drive, with variable speed control over the full speed range. In combination with the automatic overhang adjustment the oscillating feed drive achieves an optimum relation between saw speed and relative feed speed. Rubbing of the saw blades is eliminated as far as possible and the sawing of large logs is made considerably easier.
