Minimax SC3 Classic Sliding Table Saw


The most compact sliding table saw that can handle a full-sized sheet.

Most board manufacturers make their standard sheet size 2400x1200mm (8’x4′).  This means you need an effective way of ripping down a 2400mm length to ensure you get the best return on your panel.  With its 2660mm sliding table stroke, the SC3 Classic does this easily.  You’ll get the best return from any faced boards, like melamine, veneers and high gloss finishes.

The large crosscut fence with 2 flip over stops and oversized outrigger support table make using this machine even easier.

  • Aluminium sliding table 2660mm stroke
  • 300mm blade capacity
  • Scoring saw to minimise chipping and breakout.
  • 900mm ripping capacity to the right of the blade
  • 240V, 3hp Single phase motor

The MiniMax sliding table saw system gives a smooth slider, that is accurate every time.   The table runs right next to the main blade to ensure your panel does not get scratched.


Standard Features:

  • Blade capacity 300mm
  • Blade tilting 90 to 45 degrees
  • Max saw blade diameter (with scoring saw installed) 300mm
  • Squaring stroke 2660mm
  • Ripping capacity 900mm
  • 3hp, 240V single phase motor
  • Cast iron worktable dimensions 840 x 560mm

Sliding Table

Extruded, anodised aluminium sliding table (dims 270 x 124 x 2250) sliding on high precision, hardened and calibrated guideways (F550 SX steel). This wide worktable gives great support, even for larger panels and workpieces. Incorporating a self-cleaning dustproof design the sliding table is designed to last. The table itself is a ‘honeycomb’ extrusion design to disperse the loadings and distribute the panel weight evenly.

Scoring Unit

Belt driven scoring unit to reduce chipping and breakout on melamine and veneered boards. 80mm diameter blade with easy adjustment from outside the machine, no tooling needed. The main blade capacity is 315mm, even with the scorer fitted.

Squaring Frame

Allows large sheets to be processed single-handed. Support is given by the squaring frame and the sliding table. The panel is pushed up against the crosscut referencing fence. Supplied complete with:

  • Panel support.
  • Two large flip over stops supplied as standard.
  • Swinging arm support
  • Extending panel support for wide panels
  • Panel clamp mounted to the aluminium sliding table


Slides on a large machined round bar, 45mm diameter – guaranteeing uniformity along the full 900mm rip capacity. The fence is locked into position via a cam system, and includes a micro adjustment know to allow you to make fine movements to the fence.

The fence itself is mounted on a large cast mounting. It is anodised aluminium, giving smooth workpiece feed.

Cast Iron Worktables and Machine Base

The machine frame and base is manufactured in the SCM groups assembly plants. The base is laser cut from one piece of plate steel. A CNC controlled folding machine than constructs the base. This method guarantees the integrity and rigidity of the machine frame.

The working tables are cast iron. Again this is done in SCM’s own foundry. Having these manufacturing facilities ‘in house’ means the MiniMax machines feature oversized castings with extensive reinforcing. The cast tables are then milled to provide a flat working surface.
