In the standard version, the LTS 520 is suitable for straight and miter cutting of structural profiles, solids, plates, pipes & tubes. The machine stand is of welded steel construction, with an integrated swivel base. Mechanical stops are provided at ninety degrees (for straight cuts) & at forty-five & thirty degrees for miter cutting in both directions, left or right. The degree of miter is displayed digitally to one-tenth of a degree, so that the operator may position the saw precisely.
The machine’s gearbox is mounted below the saw table & travels horizontally on precision ground & hardened guide ways. The LTS 520 employs an all spur & helical gear train, which operates in a constant oil bath. Gear shafts are journaled in heavy-duty roller bearings, to provide the smoothest & most efficient possible method of power transmission.
The saw motor is 1.6/2.8kw two speed electric motor that will give saw blade speeds of 29 and 58 m/min with an optional stepless drive offering 12 to 100m/min blade speed.
Other machine features, which serve to minimize vibration while cutting, are the saw’s thick working table & powerful pneumatic clamps. The material being sawn is clamped horizontally & vertically to ensure that it is positively secured. The width of the clamping range is normally zero to 16-3/4 inches, but by exchanging the pressure piece on the horizontal clamp, the range can be increased to 20-1/2 inches. This auxiliary pressure piece is furnished with the machine & is also useful when acute miters are performed.
