Circular saw with tilting blade with professional performances for a quality without compromises.
The minimax si 315es has proven itself in American cabinet shops for many years. This machine boasts a full 10’ stroke, and features normally found on much more expensive machines, for a fraction of the cost. This machine incorporates a top quality, American made, Leeson motor for 1ph shops. See for yourself why the minimax si 315es stands in a class of its own.
Top performances: cast iron saw unit with 315 mm saw blade and scoring unit with independent motor. Best support in all machinings, thanks to the 330 mm width sliding table. Maximum precision and stability with the blades lifting by means of “dove-tail” guides system and the saw unit tilting by means of two, large, lateral trunnions.
Unique in the world in its category, with a cutting height of 118 mm. The cast iron saw unit with a rigid closed loop structure can accommodate a blade of 315 and 350 mm diameter with the scoring blade mounted, ensuring perfect and easy cutting of veneer panels and thick solid wood material. The saw blade uses 100% of the motor power, thanks to the scoring blade with an independent motor as standard. The rotation fulcrums of the saw unit have a 120 mm diameter and stand on steady crescent shaped rests that separate it from the base: a rigid reliable solution.
Optimal support also to larger pieces, with the sliding table 360 mm wide. Exceptional precision and smoothness: to secure the guides it is not used glue, since the thickness could affect sliding. They are secured with a procedure of aluminum riveting.
Panel loading is easy on the large squaring frame with an idle roller at the end. The telescopic squaring fence with the inclined metric scale and two reversible stops can be used to square panels measuring 3200 x 3200 mm and for miter cuts at up to 45° on both sides of the frame.
Wide range of high-tech devices to make your Elite S even more powerful and personalized, like the start/stop pushbuttons for the main blade and scoring blade integrated in the sliding carriage; very useful when machining large dimensioned work pieces that prevent an easy and safe access tothe main machine control panel.
