Our service team have been working on Forte equipment for more than 30 years, so we can state with confidence that we can offer a second to none backup service.
Forte equipment has been manufactured in Germany for more than 50 years and is regarded as the Rolls Royce of cutting saws. They have gained this reputation by manufacturing very robust solid saws that quite literally last a lifetime. Forte don't use gimmicks to sell their saws, they don't have to. Anyone that has owned one will tell you they are very simple to use, reliable, efficient and very effective.
Forte set the standard for production speeds and and blade life that all the other manufacturers try to beat. This is achieved by the solid frame and head that is supported by two large steel columns keeping the blade true without vibration. The downward velocity is smooth and direct which can only be achieved with the twin column design. Vibration and jerking at the cutting point (the point at which the teeth enters the product) shortens blade life and can cause an uneven cut. The machine head is tilted at 45 degrees (unlike many of our competitors machines) to reduce the amount of twist that the blade has to go through between the blade wheels and the cutting guides. Twisting motion leads to the backing strip of a blade wearing and cracking which in turn leads to the blade breaking before the teeth are worn.
A unique balance valve and sensor is fitted to the machine head which maintains the optimum tooth load by exactly controlling the blade feed and speed throughout the the cutting process.
