What Is Multi Blade Rip Saw?

What Is Multi Blade Rip Saw?

The multi blade rip saw is a circular saw composed of several cutting units connected together and whose distance can be adjusted precisely. It allows you to cut large pieces into planks, beams or profiled wood in one step. The variants of these special machines differ depending on the height of the cut and the variable feeding speed.

Multi-blade rip saws can provide a perfect balance between accuracy and efficiency. Their high horsepower motors are featured to meet low to high volume production requirements.

Types of Multi Blade Rip Saw

1.Log Multiple Rip Saw

Feed one log with about 10-50cm diameter and 50-2000cm length into machine; get 8-9 pieces planks or panels with different dimension after 10s, this is the most valuable function—high efficiency.

Log Multi Rip Saw was considered as one of the most advanced log processing machine, feeding smooth, high efficiency, lower consumption, safer for workers, lower price with high value. Each log multi rip saw can get 20-30sqm finished-product (plank or panel) in every single day (about 8 hours), 4-7 times compare with traditional band saw. So called tiger machine in China, means eating material fast and big eater.

All saw blade place inside of machine, covered by outer shell, highly improved the protection for workers.

Log Multi Rip Saw adopt a bunch of saw blades for getting several pieces of panels one time, single rip saw adopt one piece of saw blade, which install normal saw blade usually. By comparison, Log Multi Rip Saw must install high-demanded saw blade, which asks saving material, small saw kerfs, thinner, clean.

2.Square Lumber Multiple Rip Saw

The multi rip saw is mainly used for sawing square timber wood into a plurality of square bars. The upper and lower shafts are designed for large diameters. It has the characteristics of small sawing path, smooth sawing surface and high yield.

It is an ideal woodworking machinery for processing finger joints, joinery boards and packaging boards.

The thickness of the final board can be controlled by changing the spacers’ size. It can process a variety of hard logs such as poplar, pine, eucalyptus.

The Advantages of Multi Rip Saw

Multi-blade saws allow pieces of wood to be cut in more than one location at the same time.  Width cutting, which is often referred to as ripping, is combined with longitudinal cutting to make the first stage of wood processing faster and more efficient.  A multi-blade saw consists of two or more circular blades that are mounted on a saw shaft.  The distance between the blades in a multi rip saw is set before the wood cutting begins with rings that are pushed against the shaft.  This allows the same machine to cut wood of varying sizes quickly and accurately.

A multi-blade rip saw is capable of producing wooden work pieces of exact widths, lengths and depths using a selection of distance rings.  This saves an operator from having to use two or more different machines, or from having to unload and reload the same piece of wood to achieve the desired dimensions.

Why Woodworkers Need a Multi-Rip Saw?

For a more precise and accurate cut, a multi-rip saw is a must-have for any woodworker. The upward cutting motion of the blade ensures a cleaner, smoother surface.

Achieve Optimal Cutting Efficiency

With a multi-rip saw, you can achieve optimal cutting efficiency. The upward cutting action of the blade means that the wood fibers are cut cleanly in one pass, producing an even surface with fewer chances for error. Additionally, because the blade is cutting in a forward motion rather than back and forth as traditional saws do, you can save time and get your projects completed more quickly.

Resaw Boards Into Smaller Pieces

A multi-rip saw can also be used to resaw boards into smaller pieces. This technique is often used by woodworkers when they need to create new sections from a single board, such as in creating furniture legs or other narrow parts. Resawing with a multi-rip saw can be done quickly, accurately and efficiently due to the blade moving in an oval shape instead of just back and forth.

Make Your Rip Cut Saw More Powerful by Utilizing Additional Blades

Multi-rip saws are usually equipped with a single blade, but they can be further enhanced through the use of additional blades. Mounting a crosscut/angle blade on your multi-rip saw opens up new possibilities for creating angled miter joints, dadoes, and rabbets. Plus, you can alternate between different types of blades according to the material being cut and the task at hand.

For example, switching to a high speed steel (HSS) blade if cutting harder woods such as oak or walnut may provide better results than using the standard blade that comes with most multi-rip saws.
