Sawing Machine Safety Operating Procedures

1. Before use, check the operation of the air-powered saw to ensure that the lubrication, cooling system, and vise are functioning properly.

2. The material being cut should be firmly clamped, especially when multiple pieces are being clamped together. Check whether all connections have been tightened.

3. If the material being cut is highly bent, do not clamp multiple pieces together; instead, clamp them one by one before cutting.

4. When lifting or unloading long materials, pay attention to the surrounding area for people, and use a support rack for materials longer than the bed surface. When cutting heavy materials, use a counterweight chain to secure any protruding parts. More than two people should operate and coordinate their actions under one person’s command.

5. Choose the appropriate cutting specifications based on material, variety, and hardness. For materials with high hardness, anneal them before sawing.

6. If the saw blade deviates, correct it immediately. Ensure that the saw blade is properly tightened in the saw frame to prevent it from breaking.

7. When cutting thin materials, either stack them to increase the thickness or add thick pressure plates to both ends and reduce the feed rate to avoid saw blade breakage.

8. If the saw blade breaks in the middle, turn off the power first before replacing it. Flip the workpiece and cut a new saw kerf.

9. Cover the circular saw blade with a protective cover. Avoid approaching the spinning saw blade with your hands or head.

10. Categorized and neatly stack the finished cut materials, ensuring stability, preventing falling, collapse, and blocking passageways.

Requirements for employment

Operators must be employees who have received professional training for operating the sawing machine.

Employees who have not received training or carefully read and understood this specification are strictly prohibited from operating the sawing machine. Violators will receive severe punishment, and any consequences resulting from their actions are their responsibility.

Pre-startup inspection

Confirm that the power cord is intact.

Ensure that starting the sawing machine will not affect the safety of the surrounding area.

Safe operation

Turn on the cooling water source and confirm whether there is cutting fluid; if not, add it.

Adjust the vertical sawing machine speed control handle to the up position, turn on the saw frame power, and the saw frame begins to rise. After it stops, clamp the material on the table.

Then adjust the speed control handle to the down position, and the saw frame descends, paying attention to control the speed of descent.

When it drops to a position where the saw blade is relatively close to the material, adjust the handle to stop the saw frame, turn on the saw frame power, and the saw frame moves.

Adjust the handle to the appropriate downward position, turn on the cutting fluid, and begin sawing the material.

During the sawing process, pay attention to the speed of saw frame descent; if it is too fast, slow it down.

The surface of the sawed material must be padded with cardboard or wood boards to prevent damage from clamping, and the material must be laid flat to ensure that the kerf is perpendicular.

Operators are strictly prohibited from having any part of their hands, head, or body under the saw frame. Any part of their bodies should not be within 20 cm of the saw frame.

Before sawing the material, the operator should have a detailed understanding of the size of the material. Before clamping the material for sawing, the operator should measure whether the size of the material is accurate.

Equipment maintenance

After use, the operator should turn off all power to the sawing machine, clean the equipment and remove the sawdust from the work area and surrounding environment.

Return tools and fixtures.

Inject oil into the guide rail daily and lubricate the gear pair.

Check all wires monthly to ensure they are intact; if not, replace them.

Replace the speed control box hydraulic oil every six months.

Don't forget, sharing is caring! : )
