An Abrasive Saw, also known as Cutoff Saw Machine is a Power Tool which is typically used to cut hard materials, such as metal bars, ceramic tiles, and Concrete. The cutting action is performed by a rough surface abrasive disc, similar to a grinding wheel.
Specifically speaking, this is not a cutting saw, as it does not use the regularly shaped-sharp edged blade for cutting. An abrasive disc grinds the metal surface bit by bit repeatedly to cut apart.
These saws are available in a number of models; some are.
Table Top: This kind of cutoff machine is mounted on a table and is fixed to the table for stability while working. Generally used for cutting tiles and metals.
Walk behind Models: These machines are larger saws which use a stand or small cart to cut into asphalt, concrete materials and pipe work on construction work.
Free Hand: It is a free hand portable saw a machine that can be easily held in hand. The motor is near the operator, with the blade at the far end of the saw machine and a handle to move as per the cut needed.
The Cutting abrasive saws typically made of complex friction circular disc blades to cut through the steel material. These discs are consumable items as they wear throughout the cutting process. Discs are typically 14 inches (360 mm) in diameter and 7/84 inches (2.8 mm) thick.
A larger saws use 410 mm (16 inches) diameter blades. Some are special discs are available for cutting stainless steel & metal bars. Abrasive blades use super-abrasive blades made of Cubic Boron Nitride and Diamond, which are more durable than conventional abrasive materials.
