Model KS600 Semi-Automatic Band Saw Designed for Production Sawing

March 11, 2010
The Kalamazoo Machine Tool Model KS600 Semi-Automatic Band Saw is designed for production sawing of solids and structural shapes up to 20-inches at 90 degrees in full cycle, semi-automatic operation. The saw offers double mitering up to 60 degrees either left or right. The blade speed in infinitely variable from 60 to 360 fpm to enable the operator to adjust the cutting speed for optimal sawing of the material. The saw frame is canted 5 degrees to easily cut through the bottom of a structural section without vibration or slowdown of the sawing rate. The Model KS600 features massive components for solid, vibration-free production cutting, fully hydraulic operation, and a free-standing operator console that may be placed in the desired location. When the operator pushes a single button, the sawframe automatically senses the material size, the vise clamps, the sawframe makes the cut at the preset rate, then automatically returns to clear the workpiece, and the vise opens, ready for the next cut. This enables exceptionally fast production sawing.
