50 Years of the Mitre Cross-Cut Table
In 1958 a revolutionary idea was born at MARTIN: the mitre cross-cut table.
A 50-year history that stands for more efficiency, more precision and more comfort in timber processing. 50 years of consistent improvements that have turned this optional feature into a sophisticated high-end product in and of itself. MARTIN mitre cross-cut tables always provide plenty of room for every workpiece and make angle cuts from -46.50° to + 46.50° on large panels fast and easy, with an accuracy of up to 1/100 degree. Continuously adjustable, uncomplicated and fast.
Radio-controlled length compensation with RadioCompens
With the future-oriented RadioCompens* systems – the radio-controlled, automatic length compensation feature - or the brand-new ParaGlider (patent pending), every MARTIN sliding-table saw becomes an angle-cutting center. The ParaGlider, the latest innovation for cross-cut tables, works in hiding, so to speak. But in operation, its benefits are very easy to see.
The ParaGlider; a patent pending innovation from MARTIN...
The distance between the cross-cut fence and the main blade is always increased when performing an angular cut. This leaves the operator with less support for their workpiece, for example when crosscutting short battens. The new ParaGlider allows the operator to move the cross-cut fence against the secondary stop created by the ParaGlider, creating more bearing surface for the workpiece and reducing the distance beween the cross-cut fence and the main blade.
... becomes a standard.
Of course, the correct cutting dimensions can still be calculated properly by the controls because the ParaGlider works perfectly with both the standard cross-cut fences as well as with the RadioCompens stops. As of April 2008 the ParaGlider is now part of the standard version of mitre cross-cut tables.
