What is a gantry saw?

This gantry saw is equipped with one longitudinal saw and one cross cut saw, arranged on a common saw carriage. The saw gantry moves to the individual cutting positions and performs the cut.

What is a bridge saw?

A bridge saw or also called a sawing machine or cutting centre for natural stone or ceramics is a very large saw that runs on a beam or bridge. This guarantees professional quality cuts. Bridge saws are used to cut stone, granite, marble, ceramics and all other types of slabs.

What does a gantry do?

A gantry crane is a type of overhead crane that uses legs to support the bridge, trolley, and hoist. These legs travel on along the ground on wheels or ride on rails implanted in the ground. A gantry crane is typically used for outdoor applications or for lifting capability below existing overhead bridge crane systems.

What is gantry type?

Gantry Type CMM is mainly used for Precision Inspection of a large component. T his machine is designed and developed with advanced patented technology. Stable mechanical structure offered with a wide range of probing options including 5-axis probing technology.

What is a CNC bridge saw?

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) bridge saws are machines made for cutting natural stone, granite, marble, and ceramics.

What is a bridge tile saw used for?

Tile bridge saws can often be used for cutting squares, L-cuts, U-cuts, mitering and creating grooves.

How does a gantry work?

Working principle of the gantry crane hoisting mechanism: The basic principle is that the rotation of the motor is transformed into the lifting and lowering movement of the load. When the power is suddenly cut, the brake is applied and the load is stopped at the specified position.

Is an overhead tile saw better?

Since less dirt and water falls on the bridge, the overhead tile saw is more accurate in the long run. Contamination gets accumulated on the guide way causing the jerky table movement and may even damage the slide. Works best for rip cuts. Difficult to cut notches etc.

What is gantry made of?

A gantry crane consists of a steel frame that has both a horizontal beam or beams (on which a hoist runs) and supporting upright columns. These columns can be static/fixed but more commonly are able to run on floor mounted rails or castor/tyred wheels.

What is the difference between a wet and dry tile saw?

The main difference is how they handle the dust and remnants of the tile cast into the air or surrounding air which peels or splinters off of the original material. A wet tile cutter will use water to tamp down this excess remnant into a slurry which is kept in a bucket or something that can collect the “water”.

Why use a wet saw to cut tile?

For large jobs, where many tile cuts are taking place, a tile wet saw can also be beneficial. The water in the wet saw is crucial when cutting through hard or dense tile, such as porcelain, since it keeps the blade from heating up and beginning to smoke, creating too much friction to do its job properly.
