Panel saws are an important machine in any workshop that deals with sheets of wood in high volume. Panel saws are effectively a sawing machine with a sliding table and they have the ability to make light work of cutting jobs that require accuracy and precision.
Predominately used in any business that creates cabinets they can be used to cut solid-wood, plywood, MDF and other materials such as melamine into smaller sizes panel saws have also proved invaluable in the sign making industry where they are used to cut sheets of wood for sign blanks.
There are two types of panel saws: vertical and horizontal.
Vertical Panel Saws
These types of machines typically have low cost or high cost models. They both consist of the saw traveling through the short side of the sheet which is called cross cutting. With the low cost models, the user has to slide the material through the saw while with the high cost models, the saw moves through the static material.
Horizontal Panel Saws
A horizontal panel saw cuts large sheets of plywood with a circular saw by pushing the material through the blade. The ones without the sliding table can also cut sheet goods.
