BMI Universal Panel Saw Custom Made

BMI Custom made Panel Saws In Any Size.

If your need for a simple, flexible and low cost panel saw is not met with one of the five standard sizes, which we offer, there is always an option to ask for a special size model. It could be smaller or larger.

We have done many different lengths and heights – with the largest one being 12 meter and delivered to a Danish customer. The smallest so far could cut panels 1 x 1 meter.

The principle is still the same as used on the standard size panel saws which is as follows:

The BMI Panel Saw is made of a special aluminium profile to secure maximum stability while keeping weight to a minimum.

The slide on 8 ball-bearings is force-controlled and delicately adjusted in its angle by means of a tooth belt system. This means that you place the panel on the supports and then you move the saw unit ( and not the panel ) in order to cut the size. Moving the saw unit obviously requires less efforts than moving the whole panel.

On the slide is mounted a repeat ruler device that measures from the upper edge of the board. Thereby the cut item is on top and subsequent cutting is done with exact same measurements without re-adjustments.

A laser cut stainless steel turn plate, equipped with 10 ball-bearings is mounted on the slide. It turns 90 degrees with fixed stops.

It is adjusted to the Festo dive saw TS 75 EBQ. Dependent on type of blade the panel saw can cut most materials ( fabrics ) with precision and perfect quality.

As an extra point the slide is equipped with a spring snatch as counterbalance for smooth vertical cutting.

Measuring the cutting point, can be done either manually with a measuring scale which has been placed onto the aluminum profile, or you can choose to upgrade the measuring system to a digital read out system either both horizontally and vertically, or if only one direction is needed as digital read out, this is also possible.

Festool Dive Saw

The stainless steel turn plate is adjusted to the Festool dive saw TS 75 EBQ very easily. It takes two screws and the Festool unit is locked to the plate. Dependent on type of blade the panel saw can cut most materials ( fabrics ) with precision and perfect quality.

Flexibility and Safety

The saws can connect to vacuum cleaners (see Accessories).

A very slick function is the easy tip from horizontal to vertical position. This is optional to the larger saws. As standard the larger saws are not tilt able.

The vertical position is particularly suitable for length cutting of material up to approximately 100 cm. width.

There is no pressure on the blade and the cut off material is easy to get to.

The position also makes the panel saw a potential extra mounting table.

The tip function of the BMI Panel Saw puts an end to bad working positions.

Furthermore the risk of injury from the saw itself is minimized due to the fact that one does not hold the board, but the saw.

The BMI panel saw is perfect where space is limited; the saw only requires app. 50cm more than its own length in extra space and in depth between 60 - 80 cm from the wall. The weight is between 80 - 95 kg.
