The Nova SI 400 is SCM’s best-selling sliding table saw. This machine comes with a 14” (350 mm) main blade (maximum blade capacity is 16”) and adjustable “EZ Dial” split scoring blade. It features a 10.5ft. squaring stroke on an anodized aluminum sliding table with hardened steel guides and an impressive 11 horsepower 3-phase motor to cut through tough materials with great precision. Customers appreciate the ease of use and production capabilities this saw has to offer.
The double trunnion assembly for blade tilting is part of the blade group casting. The entire blade group raises and lowers on two dovetailed steel guideways. This casting eliminates the possibility of misalignment which exists when these parts are bolted in place or pivoted on a pin as some manufacturers do. SCM’s engineered direct shaft drive coupled with rack and pinion allows for a smooth angle adjustment of the saw blade.
The Nova SI 400 has a new, wider, sliding table with two channels for added versatility. This is a feature normally only found on our larger machines. The hardened steel guideways are machined into place (no glue), and are designed to last the life of the machine with no adjustments needed.
Adjusting the scoring set is quick and easy. Simply turn the dial to adjust the width of the score. This system eliminates the need for shims and the constant adjustment they require. It is fully adjustable in 0.1 mm increments.
The Nova SI 400 comes standard with an overhead blade guard. Whether you are cutting sheet goods or 5” thick solid wood lumber, this guard has you covered. The guard also has a dust collection outlet to aid in the removal of dust and other airborne particles.
Guideways are ground to tolerance allowing for a precise and permanent fitting of the wagon assembly. The radius is ground into the steel guides which increases the contact area along the bearing surface which eliminates pre-mature wearing of the bearing and guides. The steel guides are mechanically dovetailed (not glued) into place and have a +/- 0.05 mm (.002”) tolerance along the entire length of the carriage. The carriage will never require adjustment due to its structure with arch-ground steel guideways (developed by SCM).
The Nova SI 400 has two flip-over stops for fast referencing when cutting workpieces with the same dimensions. This saw also has a crosscut fence that is over 90” long and a boom extension that can extend it another 48” when working with large panels.
The Nova SI 400 has a massive cast-iron blade group which tilts on a trunnion mechanism. This closed system allows for maximum dust removal and is the most durable tilting design. The gear assemblies are encased which prevent dust or pitch to penetrate the joining mechanisms. Other systems have an open structure which allows the blade group to twist when one of the trunnions is blocked by pitch or dust, thus throwing off your entire blade group and the accuracy of your cut.
