If you answered YES to any of the questions above you are a prime candidate for the outstanding Ocean TERMINATOR Band Saws.
Here are some of the more commonly asked questions
The Ocean Terminator band saws are supplied with two coolant systems. The preferred system is the MQL or Minimum Quantity Lubrication misting system that automatically releases a tiny amount of atomized vegetable oil to lubricate and cool the blade. This provides the longest blade life and prevents coolant from running off long beams and puddling on the floor. For very heavy and thick material it is sometimes preferable to use the flood coolant system
All Ocean terminator band saws are simple to operate
The only options that exist for these band saws are material handling equipment such as in and out-feed roller conveyors and cross transfer tables if required. Ocean Machinery offers a full range of precision engineered band saw material handling components, allowing you to easily customize your material handling system to your specific needs. Our material handling systems comprise modular components that are heavy-duty, hydraulically powered and simple to operate. You can create your own band saw material handling system choosing from
Our modular approach to material handling makes it simple to integrate your Ocean Terminator Band Saw with your fabricating machinery including beam drill lines, beam coping machines, shot blasting machines and more.
Any band saw is only as good as the quality of the band saw blade, and for this reason, Ocean Machinery recommends Lennox blades. Ocean Machinery keeps all Ocean Terminator Band Saw Blades in stock for immediate delivery.
