MetalMizer has introduced the new MV2018 metal cutting band saw. The space-saving saw is designed to offer the same or greater cutting capacity of other saws in its class with 30 percent less machine depth, the company states.
The motor drive system is mounted directly on the cutting head, eliminating the need for a spline drive and reducing the amount of floor space it requires.
Cutting capacity is 18 in. horizontal and 20 in. vertical. The 45-degree tilting saw head has 3-degree forward tilt. Cutting pressure is 0 to 175 lbs.
The saw is suitable for cutting pipes and steel profiles with awkward bends and compound angles.
