Model item-1143, Swingbeam/Rocker Arm Drive System
If the ram pivots from the end frames, an arc or "swing" is created throughout the stroke.
Due to their weaker drive system, swingbeams must adjust their blade gap for virtually every material thickness.
Because the swingbeams pivot points are fixed, they cannot have variable rake adjustments.
The swing of the upper blade causes the angle or relationship of the top blade to the work piece to change throughout the stroke.
This angle change causes distortion from the beginning to the end of the cut.
As a result of their lighter weight construction and less rigid drive system, swingbeams typically only have a 1-2 year warranty.
