Kalamazoo Machine Tool's model H6A-NC double-column mitering band saw is an automatic machine designed for vibration-free sawing of structural, solid, and difficult materials. The saw is programmable to enable serial cutting of various lengths, sizes, blade speeds, and quantities, and it stores jobs for simplified future setups.
The machine columns and base are heavy, monoweldment construction. The linear guideways feature lube fittings for simplified maintenance. The material feeder is controlled by a variable-speed inverter drive motor that turns a roller ball screw and ball nut with recirculating ball bearings to produce a low friction coefficient and stabilization.The saw blade measures 1.25 in. by 17 ft. 5 in. and operates at 60 to 360 FPM. Material work height is 32.25 in., with a vise opening of 23.5 in. Capacities are 20 in. at 90 degrees, 17.5 in. at 45 degrees, and 9.5 in. at 60 degrees.
