Blade Efficiency

The diamond blade life is significantly improved. The motor speed is set to a recommended 2,500rpm for optimum cutting efficiency and a greatly improved blade life. Research and development on our blades is an ongoing task to ensure that we bring you the best in our range.

Operator Safety

The Almonte Automatic Core Saw offers a quantum leap in operator safety and user-friendliness.

Safety features include:

  • A fully enclosed blade guard.
  • A unique patented RFID safety device incorporated within the red handle shuts down
    the saw if the blade guard is raised exposing the blade.
  • The RFID system cannot be overridden by inserting something between the sensors.
  • The drive feed activation is linked to blade operation; neither operates in isolation from the other.
  • Computer-controlled drives constantly monitor blade speed, pressure and feed chain speed.
  • Operation shuts down if maximum pressure is exceeded.
  • A reverse drive mode to enable safe, easy clearance of obstructions.
  • The control panel is conveniently located at the front of the machine, therefore,
    alleviating any risk that can be caused by having to lean over to control the machine which can lead to articles of clothing being caught by moving parts leading to possible injury.
