Lohmeyer offers two sliding table saws with pre-defined equipment. Both machines contain a sliding table of 3,200 mm and a scoring unit. The core part of both machines is the sliding table which has proven its worth in practice and the sawing aggregate. The main bearings of the saw shaft are arranged at a considerable distance to the saw blade to ensure the appropriate stability. Any saw requires a certain robustness to tolerate the impact of high radial forces to the saw blade such as the canting of big boards. The Lohmeyer saws do not have guidance systems near the saw blade, the height adjustment is arranged far away from the saw blade and is carried out through a smart lever system.
The highlight of FKS 350 IQ is the electrically driven rip fence. The operator enters the cutting width on the eye level terminal into the software surface developed by Lohmeyer, presses the Start button and the rip fence moves to the desired position with the precision of the tenth of a millimeter. Thanks to the movable operating panel at eye level the user can have a close eye on all settings at all times. The data are entered at a touch screen. When the ruler is tilted, the modified off set dimensions are automatically calculated. The maximum cutting width is 1,305 mm at the vertical position of the ruler.
As the software surfaces are developed in-house, the Lohmeyer technicians master the software to the most minute detail and can undertake customer-specific adjustments such as varying acceleration ramps when an automatic feed is applied.
With regard to spare parts Lohmeyer has taken a different approach and follows an unconventional path. In the age of internet trade the customer can easily order the required spare parts in the internet after the warranty period is expired. For that purpose the operating manuals of all Lohmeyer machines contain the lists of manufacturers and the exact designations of the components.“ Also in that respect we want to stay honest and not upset our customers with high-priced spare parts”, Peter Lohmeyer, the managing director of Wood IQ, explains the company’s strategy.
Optionally, Lohmeyer offers a double sided mitre fence applicable to both saw models.
