1050 – 05 – Band Sawing & Friction Sawing
Band saws are long, pliant, continuous blade that runs through two opposing wheels. They are adaptable blades that are used in a variety of task; furthermore, they can be used either vertically or horizontally. There are even band saws that can operate at a 45-degree angle to cut odd shapes. These are called contouring band saws. Through rigorous innovation, the industry has developed band saws with automated stock feeds and controls that are computerized. This has made them the highly efficient saw of choice for many workshops.
Friction saws are used with both circular saws and band saws. The saw generates heat just ahead of the edge of the blade, allowing the material to soften and be cut very easily.
Though both these types of saws are frequently used by a huge variety of workshops, band saws are used more often because they are more efficient and less cumbersome than circular saws.
