  • Built-in coolant system
  • Low voltage and overload protection
  • Auto shut off
  • Semi-automatic operation
  • Multiple models available
 

Large Capacity Semi-Auto Twin-Post Bandsaws

The Large Capacity Semi Automatic Twin Post saw combined with the optional swivel base, makes the perfect miter saw for cutting wide flange beams.

Highlighted Features/Notes

  • Spring loaded carbide guides
  • Semi-auto operation
  • Fused disconnect with lock-out
  • Hydraulic vise operation
  • Hydraulic blade tension
  • Multiple models available

Swivel Semi-Auto Twin-Post Bandsaws

The M-16-2 series features hydraulic swivel base, automatic preset hydraulic blade tension, a hydraulic miter vise with variable clamping pressure and increased sawing pressure for severe applications. These features provide easier and more productive operator control. Twin post design allows for more accurate cutting, notching, and easier cut entry on all tubing due to the compound angles introduced by scissor type saw design.

Highlighted Features/Notes

  • Hydraulic swivel base, single direction
  • Hydraulic miter vise with variable pressure
  • Hydraulically controlled blade tension
  • Semi-automatic operation
  • Auto shut off
  • Multiple models available

The CNC system allows an operator with a minimum amount of experience to efficiently use the machine tool. A step-by-step dialog prompts you through the information needed to program an unlimited number of jobs. For those one-time jobs, just enter the length and number of cuts.

Highlighted Features/Notes

  • Fully automatic CNC barfeed
  • With color touch screen controls
  • 500 plus job selection
  • Auto shut off
  • Digital blade speed indicator
  • Multiple models available

Large Capacity CNC Fully-Auto Bandsaws W/Shuttle Type Barfeed

Large Capacity Fully Automatic and with shuttle type bar feed. The large capacity machines utilize a color touch screen to access all of the standard machine controls. The CNC system allows an operator with a minimum amount of experience to efficiently use the machine tool.

Highlighted Features/Notes

  • Fully automatic CNC barfeed
  • With color tocuh screen controls
  • 500 plus job selection
  • On-screen help menu

CNC Controlled Bandsaws

Ficep offers a complete range of CNC controlled bandsaws that can be furnished as a standalone system or in combination with a CNC controlled drilling line. Multiple models can process sections up to 50 inches in depth. Non CNC Bandsaws also available.

Highlighted Features/Notes

  • Ficep has taken this proven CNC technology to the next level by incorporating this into their automated bandsaws that are designed and manufactured by Ficep specifically to process structural steel. 

Trim and Vertical Bandsaws

Positive frame feed allows the head to descend at a fixed IPM rate for optimum cutting in those high production applications where similar types of material are cut repetitively. Hydraulic down pressure moves the blade through the hardest material at a constant rate. Please contact us for more information.

Highlighted Features/Notes

  • 2" Bi-metal blade
  • Carbide guides with backup rollers
  • Semi-automatic operation
  • Rotary blade powered blade brush
  • LED positive feed readout
  • Low voltage protection/overload protection

Special Application Bandsaws

W.F. Wells has a complete bandsaw line, but they also build custom machines for special applications. 75% of special machines cut exotic materials other than metal. If there is a need for a special option, we can quote you. Some special application areas include: plastics, graphite, crystal, quartz, silicon, ceramics, wood products and military ballistics.

Katana Bandsaws

Katana saws are equipped with all the devices which after years of experience are considered essential to grant the best cutting result in steel construction. The body rotates as standard on a toothed wheel controlled by an encoder in order to carry out mitred cuts. In the bigger models the toothed wheel is complete with a sliding bearing. The Katana has powered brush synchronized with the blade to take off the swarf from the band teeth. Blade lubricating/cooling system included in the working cycle. Double blade guides and hydraulic vertical hold downs. And easy electronic systems that can be extended to manage completely automatic sawing lines.

Highlighted Features/Notes

  •  Hydraulic blade tightening to tighten the band
  • Devices for saw rotation through a powered mechanical toothed wheel with survey of the rotation mitre thanks to an encoder
  • Katana is designed to become as a stane alone saw or automatic sawing centre
  • Katana bandsawing systems: Integrate rollerways, transfer tables, CNC controlled measuring gauges and last generation CNC control unit
