SMART CUT™  1004  Diamond Cut Off Saw 



SMART CUT™ 1004 Diamond Cut Off Saw (327kb)

SMART CUT™ 1004 Diamond Cut off Saw is a perfect Laboratory or Industry Saw for cutting a large variety of round and irregular shape materials / specimens (such as tubing & rods). Specifically designed for use with a large variety of thinner kef diamond & abrasive cut off blades. SMART CUT 1004 is frequently used for cutting ferrous and nonferrous metals, ceramics, metal matrix composites, thermal spray coating, polymers, coal, glass, cermets, minerals, glass tubing & many other materials. SMART CUT 1004 bridges the gap between precision sectioning saws and larger cut off machines. This precision diamond cut off saw will accommodate most materials & samples while reducing set up and cutting time. Large range of Ultra Thin & High Precision diamond cut off blades from .016" Thick & up are available for cutting small parts that would otherwise be consumed by thicker blades.

The overhead design puts operator, in the best position to see and make accurate, precision cuts. Rigid machine never moves, each cut is consistently straight and square. Template design outlined with aluminum or other type marker can be cut accurately right on the line. High torque 1/4hp motor makes cutting fast and smooth. Adjustable pivot hinge eliminates all looseness and play for precision alignment. It's straight forward design allows the operator to concentrate on sectioning samples, not operating the machine. It's large versatility, and very affordable price makes it a must have for any Manufacturing or R & D facility.  Made in U.S.A.

SMART CUT™ Precision Diamond Sectioning have been successfully implemented and proven in hundreds of advanced materials and applications. SMART CUT™ Precision Manual and Semi-Automatic Saws provide Advanced Material Laboratories and Manufacturing Facilities consistent performance as fully automatic saws, at small fraction of the cost.  With ever increasing budget cuts, many facilities find the use of Precision Sawing/Sectioning Equipment and Consumables cost prohibitive. 

SMART CUT™ Precision Diamond Sectioning Saws have been successfully prove and implemented in hundreds of advanced materials and applications. SMART CUT™ Precision Manual and Semi-Automatic Saws provide Advanced Material Laboratories and Manufacturing Facilities consistent performance as fully automatic saws, at small fraction of the cost.  With ever increasing budget cuts, many facilities find the use of Precision Sawing/Sectioning Equipment and Consumables cost prohibitive. 

Fully automatic Precision Sawing machines usually cost several thousand and even tens thousands of dollars. Yet, most advanced material facilities very rarely require the functionality of high cost, automatic sectioning saws. SMART CUT™ series of Precision Diamond Saws have been designed to provide the material researcher or engineer the same capabilities they would expect from high cost automatic sectioning saws, at literally small fraction of the price. Start Saving Money Today!

We recognize that the Diamond Wafering / Sectioning Blade by itself is perhaps the most important factor in your sectioning / precision diamond sawing operation. The diamonds impregnated inside the bond matrix of the wafering blade, are what actually participate in cutting action. No matter how precision or well made your wafering saw. You will not be able to obtain the material surface finish, and precision tolerances you need, if the blade you are using is not right for your application. 

UKAM Industrial Superhard Tools proprietary blade chemistry, precision manufacturing methods, modern quality control methods, allow us to control and regulate the dozens of variables that affect blade life, quality of cut, surface finish. Reducing and often eliminating additional steps often required after sectioning. All blades are manufactured and available from inventory to fit your specific material, application, and surface finish requirements. We will work with you to determine your needs, and develop the right bond formulation, concentration, and grit sizes. SMART CUT™ Precision Diamond Wafering Blades are designed and specially selected to provide maximum possible blade life, for your desired cut quality and speed.

UKAM Industrial Superhard Tools is one of the Leading Diamond Wafering Blade Manufacturers, with one of the Largest Inventory of Precision Diamond Wafering Blades in the U.S. Over 4,000 diamond wafering blades in stock, available in different sizes, thickness, arbor sizes, diamond concentrations, diamond mesh sizes, and bond hardness's.

You are sure to find the Right Diamond Wafering Blade for your application in stock and ready for same day delivery. If you are not using these blades, you are paying too much.

What you will save on the cost of consumables and Diamond Wafering Blades will more than pay for the saw in short period of time.
