The T70 a high-end sliding table saw that sets industry standards
The T70, like every MARTIN machine, is built for maximum performance. The sturdy mechanical design and the unique and user friendly 10.4“ touch screen controller perfectly complement each other.
MARTIN does not only set industry standards when it comes to technology but also when it comes to user-friendliness. The operator is guided through individual work processes step by step by the controller that can also be customized if desired.
Cutting-edge control technology
The core of the new T70 is a powerful and user friendly touch screen controller with a 10.4” monitor. The operator is guided through complex work processes easily, quickly and accurately. All relevant information is visible at a glance. Even the basic T70 allows the operator to control three axes for the cutting height, cutting angle and cutting width. The T70 can be optionally be equipped with a motorized cross cut fence as well as a miter cross cut table as fourth and fifth axes. If the machine is equipped with the patented 3-axis scoring saw, it is also integrated in the controller. With a T70 you can work with up to eight linked axes which considerably reduces set-up times.
For performing special work on a sliding table saw like cutting grooves, rabbets and tongue-and groove joints, the MARTIN controller offers an efficient assistant. Step by step the operator enters all the necessary parameters and is guided through the work process by the controller. This way even untrained machine operators soon become experts.
Easy to operate
To enter a new value for a particular axis into the controller, just touch the respective number field. The screen immediately changes its input mode, enabling you to enter new numerical values. The numeric keypad not only indicates the minimum and maximum allowable input values that the machine will take, but also memorizes the last five input values for rapid recall. The integrated calculator can also be used if necessary. On the „HOME“ page, rapid access icons can be created and unused icons can be deleted.
This way you can keep track of the current machine values. For the precision calculation of your cuts and quick tool change you can store up to 100 different saw blades in the tool menu. A saw blade that has been stored once is immediately available and fully integrated in the controller. This way the 3-axis scoring unit automatically adjusts to the kerf of the main saw blade. Time consuming test cuts can be omitted almost completely and you can concentrate on the task at hand.
Support from the office
The machine can be connected to a computer by an optional data interface. This way the T70 can be connected to the MARTIN editor or to other panel-cutting optimization software programs like ARDIS®, Boole&Partner®, Vlecad®, CAD-code® or PatternSystems®. With the optional CPOUT interface you can connect your machine to almost any software that you would like to use. This way the machine operator is guided through the work process very efficiently which leads to more accurate results and efficient use of the resources at hand.
Technology in detail
The T70’s solid and heavy machine frame that is reinforced with a concrete composite is unique and in the woodworking machinery industry only to be found on MARTIN machines with this technical perfection. Otto Martin invented this method of construction in the 1920s and had it registered as a patent back then. Today, after 90 years of continual improvement, MARTIN still uses this simple and effective type of frame construction. The combination of steel and concrete create a high quality machine frame that is unparalleled when it comes to sturdiness, absorbing capacity and torsion resistance. This design has been proven to have up to six times the vibration dampening properties than that of a traditional cast-iron or welded frame.
The MARTIN hardened steel guide system that has been steadily improved since 1959, is the core of every sliding table saw. The unbeatable technical advantage of this system is that it allows for the permanent smooth and precision guidance of the table. The hardened steel guide strips are permanently lubricated in oil to make sure that the surfaces are unaffected by dust and chips. The hardened guide strips are cleaned every time the operator strokes the table and is the only way to permanently ensure a smooth and easy movement of the sliding table over time. Another important quality characteristic is that no plastic parts were used in the construction of this component; a valuable consideration when it comes to cut quality.
Another unique MARTIN standard is the replaceable table lip that is bolted to the main sliding table extrusion. This makes it easy to repair damage caused by deflected saw blades. The table can also be locked down every 20 mm along the length of the machine. Whether you work with various cutting devices or load the table down with heavy material, the MARTIN sliding table is always positioned where you need it.
Sturdy and precise cross-cut fence
All of our T70 machines are equipped with the unique MARTIN 2-point cross cut fence.The crucial advantage of this fence is that it offers two-point support for the workpiece. This system is useful, especially if you work with thin, flexible material. The straightened material is aligned seamlessly along the fence making for a precise cut every time. The quality ball bearing construction of the 2-point stop allows it to glide easily from one position to another. Due to the robust closed aluminum profile, the fence is unaffected by dirt or dust. The magnifying glass, an easy to read scale and standard fine adjustment of the inner stop element ensure accurate cuts from 190 – 2020 mm. Lengths of up to 3310 mm can be cut using the extendable outboard stop. The cross-cut fence can be positioned in either the forward or rear position on the cross-cut table. In either position the miter angle can be infinitly adjusted to a scale up to 50°. The exact compensated calculation of the cut is performed by the controller.
The T70 is equipped with a motorized rip fence as standard that helps you position the cutting width quickly and precisely. The intuitive touch screen controller helps to substantially reduce human errors when it comes to measuring and helps to contribute to the perfect cut. The precision rip fence’s wear –free grooved ball-bearing guide system further ensures precise positioning and a high degree of angular precision over the entire cutting width. The rip fence glides over the machine table smoothly, unaffected by dust and chips.
The unique MARTIN design makes the lowering of the rip fence below the table level quick and easy. This allows even long workpieces to be sawn. If the rip fence profile is laid on its side for veneer overhang applications, the controller senses this and compensates for the change in cutting width. To manually move the rip fence, simply press the button located on the fence and set to the desired postion.
Miter cross-cut table / RadioCompens system / ParaGlider
Otto Martin invented the miter cross-cut table more than 50 years ago to enable operators to make precise angle cuts on larger panels. Since then this popular accessory has been steadily improved and optimized. In 1958 a scale was sufficient to set miter cuts to. Today a modern digital angle display is integrated in the table. The table can be adjusted to any angle up to 47° with a resolution of 0.01°. A rigid central lock ensures exact repeatability when restoring the table to 0°. It is not without good reason that more than three quarters of all the customers that buy MARTIN sliding table saws opt for the sturdiness, functionality and precision of this convincing invention. When using the cross-cut fence for precise angular cuts, compensation for the offset of the length measurement is also necessary. With the “RadioCompens” system, the table is moved to its miter position and the workpiece length is automatically compensated for. After setting the table angle, both digital displays show the adjusted cutting length, reducing set-up times to a minimum.
