Laser Products Launches New Saw Laser

Posted on 17 April 2013 by cradmin

The new GS-40 Saw Laser from Laser Products Industries provides a visible laser line for precise cuts. This product eliminates the guess-work by giving the exact location of cuts every time. Primarily designed for bridge saws and CNC equipment, the GS-40 can also be used for band saws and permanently mounted table or panel saws. The unit provides a green laser beam, is supplied with 110-240 VAC input and is vibration and water resistant – IP 65 rated (NEMA 4). It will project a fine green line at a 75 degree fan angle which will enable users to position the work piece, slabs or wood and know exactly where the blade is going to cut. The entire laser is hardcoat anodized to make it rugged enough for any application. It also includes a mounting bracket that allows it to be clamped on any pipe that has an outside diameter of 0.75- to – 1.75-in.
