Product Code: 500712750-USED

Seize the opportunity to own a gently used Bandsaw 280 GSHT, briefly placed in a facility for 3 months before upgrading. Fully checked and functional, this machine combines precision with durability, now offered with a 3-month warranty.

The Scantool 280 GSHT Mitre Bandsaw is designed to cut metals of all types. It comes with an industry-standard blade that is and can be outfitted with a variety of blades making it a versatile saw that can address almost all applications within industry. The 280 GSHT is a single mitre band saw with a heavy-duty cast head. It comes with a blade tensioning device to assure the straight travel of the blade during cuts. It has a coolant system with ports positioned before and after the cut which optimises blade life and cut quality. This bandsaw has 2 speeds which allow the operator to choose the appropriate speed for each application. The descent of the saw head is controls with a hydraulic descent mechanism and has a bottom-side micro-switch that shuts off the saw when it reaches the end of the cut. A quick-locking vice enhances operator efficiency during the changeover of cutting materials. The 280 GSHT is CE Certified and adheres to all the latest norms and has an added safety blade-breakage feature.

    Metal Band Saws or Bandsaws are a critical component of all manufacturing facilities, machine shops, workshops, maintenance shops, precision engineering facilities, and more.  Bandsaws can be used to cut a wide variety of materials such as wood and meat but only offers the best quality saws designed for industrial metal-cutting.  Some primary examples of uses of a band saw are for cutting to size structural steel, bar stock, tubes, pipes, and RSJ material, and beams and they can cut bundles and complicated profiles and shapes.  Many engineers will saw a band saw is not as accurate as a circular saw but for 98% of the applications in fabrication and manufacturing a band saw provides more than sufficient accuracy during the cutting process and the accuracy is facilitated by the top quality design and build quality offered with the band saws in bandsaws.
