Evolution Power Tools

R255-SMS

Evolution Power Tools have over 20 years’ experience in the power tool sector and are recognised as one of the fastest-growing power tool brands in the world. Evolution’s innovation comes from their advanced, multipurpose TCT blade technology which cuts wood, aluminium and steel with a single blade. Fullform had the privilege of collaborating with Evolution to expand their ‘Build Professional Range’ by developing their sliding mitre saw.

The ethos behind R255-SMS is to deliver an accurate, reliable and powerful mitre saw suitable for both the DIY enthusiast and professional user.

The R255-SMS benefits from numerous value-added features not typically found in saws at this price point. The 50° mitre capability offers greater flexibility when carrying out cutting jobs and the laser guide is a staple of accuracy. The internal linkage arm uses a single body construction for greater reliability compared with existing multi-arm linkage mechanisms. The carefully designed ambidextrous handle, rear carry handle and cable brackets offer real end user benefits that are key to the unit’s success.

A rigorous development process focused on optimising the construction of the saw for best possible accuracy while reducing the part count for a streamlined assembly process. The result is a 22% weight reduction compared with existing units. The material saving combined with a highly innovative flatpack transit solution results in an economic and ultimately ecological package.

The development of the design was accelerated through parametric modelling of the R210-SMS
