Polish Acrylic on a Sliding Table Saw
For over three years, Martin has been pursuing the idea of
finish polishing the edges of acrylic on the sliding table
saw. Shopfitters, constructors of musical instruments and
particularly trade fair construction companies often have
to polish the edges of acrylic that have become dull after
cutting. The idea was to develop an option for the MARTIN
T74 saw that would make it possible to finish polishing
of acrylic panels directly after cutting them.
The drive of the sliding table was fine tuned for polishing.
The pressure bar is divided into several clamping areas,
which can be used independently ensuring gentle and firm
clamping of smaller and bigger workpieces. A special fence
included in the package makes it easier to position the
workpieces to be polished. Even whole stacks of acrylic
plates can be positioned for polishing without difficulty at
the 2 m guide. Acrylic plates as well as whole stacks of
material, with an edge length of up to 3,000 mm and a
thickness of up to 100 mm, can be processed effortlessly.
The package includes the
polishing unit, including tool
protection, dust extraction
hood and lifting device
which can be lifted and lowered
manually. The polishing
unit can only be used
with Euracryl ES-100 tools
(not included in the package) polishing a maximum thickness
of up to 100 mm.
