TOKSEL TAURUS GANGSAW MACHINE
Taurus-80 has a special design that transforms marble, beige, basalt blocks and rubble into slabs with minimal waste.
Corrosion which shortens the life span of machines due to water and dirt, is prevented via hot-dip galvanizing. 400-500°C hot-dip galvanize reaches to every spot that regular dye might fail to cover and lengthens the life span of the machine up to 100-120 years by preventing corrosion. Two block cars and a transfer car are hot-dip galvanized as well.
A rigid, vibration free structure is the well-known key for a precise cut. Connecting rods,
eccentrics and bearings are made of monoblock steel casting. This feature promises
precise cut. It is proven with an interesting test which is recognized as a challenge in stone
industry: When a coin is placed vertically on a high point of a gangsaw where it is likely
to vibrate the most, it stays stable even during fastest cutting mode.
Although swinging system is proven to be superior to other systems worldwide, monoblock cast steel swing arms are unique to Toksel. Connecting rods which are usually made of weld platinum, are also made of monoblock cast steel in Taurus-80.
Another feature that provides precise cutting is PLC system which offers various modes for
cutting. For instance you can produce slabs from smaller unshapely rocks and rubbles with
minimum wastage in sensitive mode.
To prevent tremendous damages due to cracks in stone blocks, Taurus-80 quickly stops thanks to switches in the front and back. Toksel is the first to use 132 kw. inverters to make this emergency stop and a smooth start possible.
When it comes to energy saving, besides the advantage of the friction-free swinging system, Toksel added high efficiency IE3 motors.
Unlike other gangsaw machines, Taurus-80 has automatic lubrication system instead of manual lubrication. Since the water valves are usually located inconveniently on the top of the machines, staff often forget to shut it off. Another admirable feature of Taurus-80 is automatic water valve.
