The saw was one of man’s first tools — but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been technological advances throughout history.
For a long time, the best method to cut metal was with a hand-held circular saw, but it was inefficient, expensive and time-consuming.
There had to be a better way, and the folks at Scotchman Industries know there is: A cold saw.
With a cold saw, a specially designed blade makes a clean cut through metal — and it doesn’t generate heat the way an abrasive wheel would. Cold saws are effective, affordable and quick; a clear winner over the old-fashioned hand-held saws.
Today, Scotchman Industries is still improving and updating their cold saw lines from their home base in Philip, S.D., to ensure you get what you need: An effective and safe product.
Value in Time Saved
A circular cold cut saw is the best machine for cutting ferrous and non-ferrous materials.
With ferrous materials, the blade turns at a very low RPM — giving a fast, precise, burr-free cut without heat or sparks. And, unlike abrasive band saws, heat is transferred away from the cutting surface. This means immediately after the cut, the material is ready for the next step in the metal working process.
The burr-free cut keeps you moving forward faster, too, because you won’t spend time filing down the metal after a cut is made. There is a big value in time saved with a cold saw.
Any Job, Big or Small
You're definitely saving time with a Scotchman cold saw, but one of the biggest advantages is the cost savings.
An abrasive wheel needs replaced after 75 cuts, but the metal cutting blade in a Scotchman cold saw can make thousands of cuts before it needs replaced.
No matter if you’re a manufacturing pro, a home hobbyist or even a shop teacher, Scotchman’s line offers the solution to your cutting needs with a complete line of cold saw models: ferrous and non-ferrous, manual to fully automatic.
