The HYDMECH V-18-45 Vertical Band Saw is a manual vertical band saw with the ability to miter from 45° left to 45° right.
A 2 HP driven hydraulic pump supplies system pressure through three position directional valves controlling all vising, head advance/retract, blade tension, and guide arm movement.
Its optional 3° degree canted head, recommended when cutting larger beams, structural steel, and bundles of square tubing allows for more efficient cutting and improved blade life.
Featuring a 18″W x 31″H capacity, 7.5 HP motor, and 1 1/4″ blade, the V-18 is a reliable choice for all your vertical metal cutting applications.
Two Full Stroking Hydraulic Vises
- Securing the material with hydraulic pressure results in better blade life, increased operator safety and a decreased risk of the material moving during the cut. Keeping the material secure reduces the chance of stripping the teeth on the saw blade.
Powered Moveable Guide Arm
- Allows for quick adjustment of the guide arm ensuring rigidity of the blade during the cut, maximizing blade life and performance.
7.5 HP True Direct Drive
- The motor and gear box are bolted together. This results in better transfer of power between the two moving parts. Other benefits include lower maintenance costs, better torque, and less vibration resulting in better blade life.
Variable Vise Pressure
- Allows for adjustment of the clamping pressure of the vises. Ideal for cutting thin wall tubing and other light material applications in which a high vise pressure may deform the material.
