A bandsaw is a powerful tool which comprises of a blade that consists of a band of metal with teeth along with one edge to cut various metal pieces. The band usually rotates in the same plane, but the band saws have three or four wheels.
A bandsaw is a machine which requires proper maintenance just like any other equipment. If bandsaw machines are not maintained well then the machine can break down and will not perform well. Preliminary or preventive band saw maintenance increases productivity, cost and stress.
The bandsaw machines have a metal band gears that are long and narrow. The band moves on two wheels which are set on the same vertical plane with a space in between them. The saws can be used in carpentry and metalwork as well to cut different materials. They are best for shaping irregular machines.
The machine is composed of a frame which is in the shape of a goose neck. They support two steering wheels and overlap in the same vertical planes that enclose a saw worm known as tape. Generally, the bandsaw machine manufacturers in India offer three types of machines with specific features.
The blades are according to the types of special work like manual, semi-automatic and automatic. They are best for making horizontal, vertical and angular cuts. These are as follows:
Metal cutting band saws: These are the ones that require a refrigerant that go on providing constantly on the bandsaw blade. The saw is maintained at a low temperature and in turn prevent overheating which can cause defects in courts and shorten the life of the blade. The absence of refrigeration also produces a slower court.
Bandsaw blades for woodcutting: It comprises of highly elastic metal sheet that is cut and welded as per the diameter of the wheels of a machine. It produces continuous sliding on the work piece that needs to be cut.
Saws, automated tape: These are the ones that carry off present power, speed, reverse and clamping of parts. They are usually put into work where it is not convenient to have a machine operator of the device. Such saws also work with the help of computer numeric control to ensure accurate cuts.
