WEHA Offers Redesigned Achilli Track Rail Saw System

Posted on 21 May 2015 by cradmin

WEHA Achilli Track Rail Saw SystemWEHA now offers the redesigned Achilli TSA 3 HP Portable Track Rail Saw System for granite, marble, quartz surfacing/engineered stone, quartzite and all other natural stones. Designed for cutting one or two granite or stone countertops per day, the saw is made using the same heavy duty 3 HP motor as the large Achilli ANR Saws. These motors offer a strong torque output, allowing cutting up to 4cm granite. The Track Rail Beam System isn’t a tw0-beam track, but rather uses the same 1/8-in.-thick galvanized steel beam and bearing system that Achilli uses on its full bridge saws. The saw will not deflect, twist, cut out of line during the full length of cut, reports the company. The blade housing that accepts a full 14-in. blade with up to an 18mm height segment. It also offers dual water ports for continuous water on the blade. The saw is suitable for hard surface countertop laminations, and has a full depth adjustment knob that allows plug cuts anywhere needed. If cutting extremely hard material and step cutting is required, it is easy to control the depth of cut during each pass, according to the company. With full rubber lining the length of the rails, once the rail has been placed in the exact spot you want, the rail and saw will not slip or slide out of place during the cut.
