A band plate saw, also known as a plate saw or contour saw, is a powerful machine designed specifically for cutting thick and/or long metal plates. It employs a continuous band saw blade with teeth that rotate around two wheels to create a cutting motion. This technique allows for precise and consistent cuts through metals, making it an ideal solution for projects that require accuracy and versatility.
Band plate saws are engineered to cut through a wide range of metals, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and various alloys. The choice of blade and machine settings depends on the specific metal's thickness and properties.
Band plate saw cutting offers several distinct advantages:
While band plate saws are highly versatile, they are primarily intended for straight cuts and may not be suitable for intricate or extremely curved shapes. In such cases, other cutting methods might be more appropriate.
