Choosing an Industrial Panel Saw: Tips for First Time Buyers

For woodworking companies whose work requires panels, owning an industrial panel saw is necessary, but choosing the right equipment can be challenging for first time buyers. Below are helpful tips for companies that are shopping for their first industrial grade panel saw.

Consider buying CNC equipment

The operating system of commercial woodworking machinery determines its production rate and cutting capacity. With this in mind, many companies choose to buy Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment that is computer-controlled. In high production environments, using a CNC panel saw is essential, but a CNC model also benefits medium production and low production environments that have few workers. Often, a single operator simultaneously oversees the operation of several CNC stations.

Choose the right model

There are two models of panel saws: vertical and horizontal. Both models are equally capable of producing panels, but many companies prefer the former for the following reasons:

  • A vertical model has the smallest “footprint”
  • The operator does not need to keep the board square to the fence
  • A vertical model is often more adept at cutting reveals
  • A vertical model is simpler to feed automatically
  • A vertical model is the easiest model to set up
  • A vertical model often costs the least

These advantages make a vertical model ideal for companies that need to save workspace, simplify the production process, automate the production environment, and save time on equipment deployment.

Consider buying used equipment

Used commercial woodworking machinery offers excellent value when it is refurbished. If a company opts to buy a high-priced CNC model, buying it from a professional refurbisher should save off the original price. Unlike standard used equipment, refurbished equipment is reconditioned to perform ‘like new’ by being cleaned from the inside out, and having worn and recalcitrant parts replaced. Considering its long lifespan, and industrial panel saw is an ideal piece of equipment to refurbish.

Inspect and test the equipment before buying it

If the equipment is purchased online, and the location of the seller is far away, it could be difficult to inspect and test the equipment in-person. If so, the potential buyer should hire a third party to conduct the inspection and test. Visually inspecting the critical parts of a panel saw and listening for unusual noises as it operates are excellent ways to assess the overall condition of the equipment. Most professional sellers allow potential buyers to inspect and test equipment in a reconditioning facility that is part of the business location.
