In this device, a metal saw whose teeth are designed in a very precise way for a specific cut is attached to a steel body that is flexible and strong at the same time. which is resistant to stretching.

The high efficiency of this device as well as the unique adaptability of these devices and the blades used in it for various purposes have made this device one of the most important and efficient devices required by industries.
