Feed Mechanisms

The bandsaw feed mechanism aids in proper machine usage, allowing for an easy and productive cutting procedure with positive end results. Blade life preservation is another aspect. Gravity feed saws behave as their name implies and rely on their own weight. The cutting force can be adjusted by a movable counterbalancing weight, a screw-thread coil spring adjustment, or by a hydraulic or pneumatic damper or speed control valve. A damper won’t force the blade down but instead limits the fall speed, preventing excessive feed on thin or soft parts. Hydraulic feed saws use a positive pressure hydraulic piston to move …

Bandsaw Blade Speed Recommendations

It is important to consider bandsaw blade speed recommendations if accuracy, a smooth finish, and increased output are part of the plan. A bandsaw’s teeth are designed to cut a variety of materials and produce a uniform cut. The minimum radius of a curve cut on a particular bandsaw is determined by the width of the band and its kerf. Bandsaw speeds can range anywhere from 40′ (12 m) per minute to 5,000′ (1,500 m) per minute, and specialized saws built for friction cutting of hard metals run at speeds of up to 15,000′ per minute. New tooth geometries and pitch …

Horizontal and Vertical Bandsaws

Selection of horizontal and vertical bandsaws, like any other decision, depends on things like need, capabilities, and fit. Both can be used for woodworking and in metal fabrication shops. Horizontal bandsaw machines have the capacity to cut materials from soft woods to thick metals. Vertical bandsaw machines are used for cutting wood, metal, and plastic. Horizontal bandsaws hold the work piece stationary while the blade is moving back and forth through a cut. The configuration of the horizontal bandsaw helps to cut long materials. Vertical bandsaw machines need the operator to move the material against the blade to make a …
