How to Use a Saw to Cut Aluminium Frame Mouldings
If you're producing aluminium frames in volume, we can supply you with the right cutting equipment and helps you set-up.
In this guide we tell you how to use the Inglet MT481 Single Mitre Saw - ideal for those cutting approx. 40 frames per day.
Remember, before use conduct a risk assessment and wear appropriate PPE.
1) Measure the graphic panel and the thickness of the aluminum frame moulding.
2) Adjust the scale on the mitre saw to match measurements.
3) Slide in one length of aluminium and activate the mitre saw clamp.
4) Press the green button to turn on the saw.
5) Move the bar horizontally, left to right, in a smooth motion to the bottom right.
6) Slowly & uniformly raise the lever to cut the moulding.
7) Press the red button to turn off the saw. Release the clamp and remove the mitred aluminium.
8) Repeat the above process to mitre all aluminium lengths to size, ready to assemble using Aluminium Corner Hardware.
