Fox® swing frame cut-off machines are a fast and economical way to remove gates and risers from castings or to separate castings tied together with runner systems. When gates or risers are on flat surfaces cuts can be made very close to the casting eliminating the need for additional grinding.
The units should be suspended from a bridge crane or jib crane arranged for easy movement in/out or left right. With the unit suspended on a chain hoist the machine can be pivoted on the chain to achieve cutting at a particular angle.
The saw also has adjustment for rotating the wheel (as viewed by the operator) up to 90 degrees allowing horizontal cuts as well as any angle between horizontal and vertical.
The handle bars are adjustable for length and angle for ease of use.
The two speed drive allows the wheel speed to be recovered when the wheel is partially worn. Starting speed is 14,200 Surface Feet Per Minute (SFPM), using the two speed adjustment the average wheel speed is approximately 12,500 SFPM, providing higher efficiency.
