A large capacity, twin column band saw has a rigid design for high performance with reduced vibration and produces best surface finish and good blade life. A pivot action semi auto saw is flexible, compact and adaptable for all applications.
A semi auto band saw is equipped with a powered vice and powered bow lift cylinder. The cutting cycle is initiated by pushing a single button that closes the material clamp, starts the blade and allows the bow to descend at a controlled downfeed rate. At the bottom of the cut, the blade stops and the bow rises to a position immediately above the material. The vice clamp then opens.
Straight and Mitre Cutting
The straight cutting of billets is best suited to some heavy build machines with swivelling vice jaws, other machines have a swinging bow for easy mitre cutting.
