The Ocean Terminator 18/25 Dual Column Dual Miter Band Saw is the newest of the Ocean Terminator range of band saws. It is specifically designed for structural steel fabricators to handle the larger beams and profiles, and the heaviest sections that structural steel fabricators cut on a daily basis.
The DCM 18/25 is the only dual column saw that can miter to 60 degrees in both directions. It also has a very useful optional powered lift roller to help un-pinch blades and to assist moving heavy material over the saw datum block.
The ability to miter cut both directions significantly reduces the material handling time, further improving your profitability.

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
