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 steel wire system.
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 readjustments.
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.
Depends 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.
The saws can connect to vacuum cleaners (see accessories here: http://www.bmi-pladesav.dk/html/tilbehoreng.html).

Flexibility and safety
A very slick function is the easy tip from vertical to horizontal position.
The vertical position is particulary suitable for length cutting of material up to app. 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.
In a horizontal position
The tip function of the BMI panle 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 comes in 5 sizes and can cut boards of up to 210 cm width and 305 cm length.
The BMI panel saw is perfect where space is limited; the saw only requires app. 50cm more than its own lenght in extra space and in debth between 60 - 80 cm from the wall. The weight is between 80 - 95 kg.
When not in use the BMI panel saw can easily fold up and be moved around the workshop or construction site by only two men.
