The sliding table - the heart of the sliding table saw
Precision, smooth running and long term reliability. These are the preconditions for economic success with your sliding table saw.
All operations start with a precise rip cut. The table of the FKS 3 IQ series slides smoothly and precisely – the guides are hardened round bars which carry the sliding table - a robust, proven design for constant satisfaction when operating the FKS 3 IQ series saws of Lohmeyer. Of course, the system is maintenance-free.
Quality and security
As a professional you know that the sliding table system guarantees the accuracy of the cross cuts, because the sliding table accomodates the cross cut fence.
If you are smart, you leave nothing on chance, but go for quality, precision and an engineering which secures constant satisfaction when operating the Lohmeyer FKS 3 IQ series sliding table saws.
Cutting length of the sliding table
Table length FKS 355 IQ: 3,200 mm
This corresponds to the following cutting lengths:
3,100 mm with scoring saw
3,200 mm without scoring saw
Cutting width of the rip fence
Max. cutting width FKS 355 IQ = 1,305 mm
Cutting length of the cross cut fence
1,900 mm to be read at the lower scale,
3,200 mm with telescopic device, to be read at the upper scale
A roller at the end of the cross cut fence supports the loading and unloading of instable workpieces.
The electrically movable fence has an accuracy of +/- 1/10 mm. The ball screw spindle positioned in a dust-free housing is responsible for this task. Fast and reliable. The fence is removable for an easy cut of larger and wider workpieces of more than 1,305 mm.
The safety area starts at 200 mm in front of the saw blade in order to prevent the automatic fence moving into the tilted saw blade. Below 200 mm the fence stops automatically and moves to the required position after a verification with the switch pressed down. This ensures that there will be no critical situation between the fence and the saw blade.
The fence is equipped with a digital readout device for precise setting with high repetitive accuracy.
The cross cut fence with telescopic extension is designed for cuts up to 3,100 mm.
Correct reading is facilitated by the inclined scales. The buffers can be easily flipped.
The fence ruler can be positioned on the front and back side of the cross table.
Besides the slide table, the saw aggregate is another
main element of the sliding table saw.
The design of the Lohmeyer sliding table saw guarantees a high degree of operational reliability and smooth running. This means for you: daily availability and exactly the precision you need for your customers in everyday woodworking.
Durable and reliable height adjustment
Dust-protected linear guides ensure durable and precise height adjustment.
Clean and safe working thanks to protective hood
A transparent and ergonomically designed protective hood for cuts with 90° saw blade and a separate protective hood for angular cuts ensure safety and reduce the operator‘s exposure to dust and chips by directly extracting the dust at the source of origin.
Durable and reliable angle adjustment
The angle adjustment system is located outside the contamination zone. Durability and operational reliability are thus ensured by the proven design. That is smart.
A solid basis is the foundation of success. This is particularly true for the core components the sliding table and the saw aggregate. Both units need a solid foundation – the base frame.
Manufactured with high-tech laser cutting machines it is a closed design and very rigid. This guarantees the smooth running and stability of the FKS 3 IQ series.
Single sided mitre fence
The mitre fence enables the operator to cut narrow and wide pieces precisely. It is easy to adjust and mounted on the sliding table without tools in a few simple steps. The cross cut fence table can be put underneath the mitre fence to support longer and thinner workpieces.
The adjustable handle at the sliding table permits ergonomic and user-friendly operation.
Double sided mitre fence
The compact design and the light weight of only 12 kg is convincing right away. The registered design of the splitting wedge makes it easy to cut off market pieces and reduces chip outs. Due to the included wall mounting unit the double sided mitre fence may be positioned at the wall.
A scale with its magnifier support the length and angle positioning. The length of the scale is 1,375 mm. The gap free stop system allows repeatability. For often used angles (5°, 10°, 15°, 22.5°, 30°, 45°, 50°, 60°, 67.5°) a length compensation is available.
Exact display variants
The length and angle position is adjusted through the scale and the digital readout. The accuracy of the digital readout is 0.01°, for length positioning 0.1 mm. Four angles including the specific length compensation can be memorized.
The space requirement for the machine including the traverse of the sliding table is approx. 6,800 mm x 3,400 mm.
For placing and removing bulky workpieces enough free space between the machine and adjoining equipment or buildings needs to be considered. Further room is to be provided for depositing workpieces and residual pieces.
