Marvel Mfg. Co., Oshkosh, Wis., has added the PA460-HD production band saw designed to cut specialty steels to its Spartan line.
The twin post machine combines rigid construction, a 10-HP blade drive, and enhanced coolant delivery. An innovative vibration dampening system helps to reduce noise levels and extend blade life. According to the company, the saw delivers maximum cutting rates on tough-to-cut materials, such as tool steel and stainless.
The machine vise is a split-front jaw design that holds material securely on both sides of the cut, while the automatic bar feed vise is designed to reduce remnant lengths to as little as 3 in. Additional standard features include a touch screen N/C control, 1.5-in. blade, and power chip auger.
