Double-mitre-cutting bandsawGerman sawing-machine manufacturer Kasto, which has a UK subsidiary in Milton Keynes (, is supplementing its bandsaw programme with the addition of a twin-column machine for cutting stock to length and mitring between -45 and +60deg to a high level of accuracy.

The power and rigidity of the KastoMiwin saw makes it suitable for use by steel stockholders.

Available in semi-automatic and automatic versions — U 4.6 and A 4.6 respectively — the latter model has a rack-and-pinion drive to feed material by up to 3,000mm in a single stroke. Blade down-feed is electrically actuated via a ballscrew drive.

The clamping range of the new bandsaw is up to 460mm (depending on the material profile); the smallest size that can be cut is 10 x 10 mm. For single straight cuts, the semi-automatic machine leaves a rest piece of just 30mm (increasing to 200mm on the automatic model).

The band speed can be steplessly adjusted between 12 and 150m/min.

The installed length of the KastoMiwin is 3,950mm, or 5,450mm for the version with material in-feed.

Positioning the saw head at an angle reduces the width to 2,980mm, allowing for transportation in a container.

Be seen in all the right places!
