Band Saw Cutting

A band saw is a power tool which uses a blade consisting of a continuous band of metal with teeth along one edge to cut various work pieces. Band sawing produces uniform cutting action as a result of an evenly distributed tooth load. They are particularly useful for cutting irregular or curved shapes, but can make straight cuts. Horizontal band saws hold the work piece stationary while the blade swings down through the cut. This configuration is used to cut long materials such as pipe or bar stock to length. Automatic band saws feature preset feed rate, return, fall, part feeding, and part clamping. These are used in production environments.

Mainstream Metals can band saw cut in-house rounds, squares and rectangles. Reduce your scrap and handling by having Mainstream provide your cut pieces.
