DeSawyer ES

In today's competitive truss industry, a proven way to increase profits and volume is to use equipment that is time proven reliable and durable. Any down time at the saw (even just one hour) can have a ripple effect that slows production throughout the entire plant. The Desawyer ESC core design has been proven since the late 1960's when Art DePauw started building his world famous saws. The Desawyer ESC is manufactured to those standards. The incredible changes in the truss industry and the design criteria of trusses made it necessary to produce such a saw capable of cutting today's toughest components. The Desawyer ESC excels in all areas of maintenance, operator ease, and return on investment. If you don't believe us ask anyone that owns one!

Servo motors provide speed and accuracy. A servo motor has an advantage over an AC motor due to its ability to move at high RPM's and its ability to be under constant power to maintain its position.  A servo motor usually has 2 cables connected to it, a power cable and a encoder cable.  Servo motors have built in encoders that ensure accuracy whenever it rotates.
