  • Machine can miter cut 45 degrees to the right and left, as well as cut vertically
  • Angle is adjusted hydraulically
  • Material is clamped by hydraulic vises – 2 sets, left & right of blade
  • Variable vise pressure with panel mounted adjusting valve
  • Vise can swivel thus allowing the cutting of compound angles
  • Machine movement is on linear bearings to provide maximum rigidity and smooth motion
  • The saw head feed utilizes a load sensing valve which stops the feed if the blade starts to overload, typical when cutting the web of structural shapes
  • Blade Guides are carbide faced with rollers to remove blade twist and dampen vibration
  • Magnetic motor starter with automatic shut off at the end of cut, motors thermal overload protection
  • Blade is preloaded to optimize cutting
  • Blade tension is adjusted hydraulically
  • Blade drive system consists of a direct drive, high efficiency planetary geardrive. Blade speed controlled with a variable frequency drive
  • Manual saw forward, saw retract, saw cut, vises open/closed, slow and fast and saw head tilt
  • Semi automatic cut cycle consists of saw start, saw cut, saw stop, and saw retract
  • Adjustable stops for saw travel forward allow notching of blocks and saw retract to allow for different sizes of material
  • Steel wheels with ductile iron hubs
  • Flood coolant system to both saw guides and an adjustable nozzle mounted on a saw head, all with adjustable flow rates
  • Electrical system uses only C.S.A./UL approved components and is electrically approved
  • Premium quality bimetal bandsaw blade
  • Instruction and parts manual
