Saws, the most essential tool in the wood manufacturing arsenal, will be everywhere at IWF 2014, with 110 companies listed under the category in the Show Directory - not counting blades, fences, tables and accessories. 

Among that list of exhibitors (below) are Putsch USA. Known for vertical panel saws, Putsch has announced a first U.S. showing of its horizontal beam saw, the Vantage 95 Horizontal Beam Saw. Putsch says with the Vantage 95 beam saw introduction, "We are able to offer complete panel sizing solutions - from one panel at a time to high-volume production."

SawStop is introducing an optional sliding crosscut table attachment for all its existing SawStop saws. It can rip or crosscut items up to 48” deep and 43” wide. The fence extends past 58” for material support. It features an easy-adjust for the proximity of fence to blade and a single knob for easy adjustment. Its oversized miter gauge measures to 60 degrees.

TigerStop has a non-stop line-up of IWF 2014 introductions, including a cross-cut fence and further integration of its crown miter cutting program into the TigerStop fence line-up. TigerStop is announcing its Precision Rough Mill, a flexible work cell that combines TigerRip 1000 with TigerSaw 1000, the optimizing cross cutting machine.

Stiles Machinery has a technology addition to its panel saw line up: the Holzma dustEX dust extraction system. Without operator involvement, the dustEX single-direction air ball valves blow air horizontally instead of vertically – creating a cushion of air to move dust toward a redesigned program fence where it is vacuumed into a collection unit. The Holzma dustEX eliminates dust damage to both surface panels and saw table plates.

Compressed air guns to clean cutting lines and blow air toward the back of the saw. The Holzma dustEX is a finalist in the IWF 2014 Challengers Award program.
