Cutting edge bandsaws from Capital Equipment


Capital Equipment Machinery Sales, owners of Parkanson Bandsaws, has introduced the latest and largest addition to the range.

The new Parkanson Model PK1000DMS has a cutting capacity of 1000mm wide x 650mm high.

It also has digital programmable angle cutting – 60° in one direction and 45° in the other.

By simply punching in the angle required on the compact keyboard and pressing “enter” the machine hydraulically unclamps, rotates to the required angle and hydraulically reclamps.

A high quality laser is fitted above the blade, which casts a very distinctive red line along the cutting edge to assist in the positioning.

Once positioned you simply press “close vice” and the vice which clamps both sides of the blade (when cutting at 90°) will hydraulically close to a predetermined pressure.

You then press “blade start” and the machine bow will descend and begin cutting.

The machine is also fitted as standard with variable blade speed from 20-100 m/min to achieve the best cut and blade life.

The bow of the saw is inclined to an angle of 5°. This assists in blade selection when cutting large sections where you maybe cutting a width of 10mm one minute and 600mm the next.

The bow of the machine runs in two columns, which have linear guide ways for bow stability and longer blade life. 

At the end of the cut the machine can either be set to stop at the bottom or return to a predetermined height you have set.

Then it is only a case of pressing “vice open”, moving the material back through to the required length and start the process over again.

As an added option with this machine Capital Equipment Machinery Sales also offers full height vice jaws.

That means you can stack material to the full height capacity of the saw.

In conjunction with the full height vice jaws the company also offers a hydraulic top clamp to keep the pack clamped together from the top.

Another popular option is mist coolant. This eliminates the mess from coolant running down the structural steel or pipe work being cut.

All Parkanson automatic bandsaws are fitted with an independent feed vice system which is totally independent of the machine bed that supports the weight of the material.

When the feed vice is on the return stroke both jaws open so there is no contact on the side of the material. Any contact on the side of the material will make the cut length accuracy inconsistent.

The independent feed vice system in conjunction with the roller feed bed that is fitted as standard feature on all Parkanson automatic bandsaws significantly reduces the force required to feed the material.
