    Description

    This EXCEL Coventry Vertical Band saw has a moving band saw blade fixed in a vertical position while the material to be cut is fed into the blade by a table. There are stoppers provided to cut parallel pieces. Different grades of blades are available based on the material to be cut. A vertical band saw, also called a contour saw, keeps the blade's path stationary while the work piece is moved across it. This type of saw can be used to cut out complex shapes and angles. The part may be fed into the blade manually or with a power assist mechanism. This type of metal-cutting band saw is often equipped with a built-in blade welder. This not only allows the operator to repair broken blades or fabricate new blades quickly, but also allows for the blade to be purposely cut, routed through the center of a part, and re-welded in order to make interior cuts. These saws are often fitted with a built-in air blower to cool the blade and to blow chips away from the cut area giving the operator a clear view of the work. This type of saw is also built in a woodworking version.
