Hendrick says the CM3 horizontal panel saw allows for ease of positioning, loading, and cutting with automated features such as air flotation, a full length pneumatic pressure beam, adjustable position stops and fully automatic cutting cycles, all with the simple push of a button. An 18-HP blade motor provides power for up to a 3-in. depth of cut. The scoring system can help to eliminate chipping, resulting in total cutting speed control with a variable saw carriage speed dial, the company says.
