KMT Model KS450 Semi-Automatic Band Saw for Production Sawing
The Kalamazoo Machine Tool Model KS450 Semi-Automatic Band Saw is designed for production sawing of solids and structural shapes up to 14-inches at 90 degrees in full cycle, semi-automatic operation. The saw offers double mitering -- 60 degrees to either left or right -- with a variable speed blade from 60 to 360 fpm. The saw frame is canted 5 degrees to easily cut through the bottom of a structural section without vibration, or slowdown of the sawing rate.
The Model KS450 features massive components for solid, vibration-free production cutting, fully hydraulic operation, and a free-standing operator console that may be placed in the desired location. When the operator pushes a single button, the sawframe automatically senses the material size, the vise clamps, the sawframe makes the cut at the preset rate, then automatically returns to clear the workpiece, and the vise opens, ready for the next cut. This enables exceptionally fast production sawing.
