Hafco Metalmaster EB-330FAS band saw cuts down on blade wear


For a fully automatic hitch feed, single mitre band saw; a great option is the Metalmaster EB-330FAS from Hafco, designed for repetitive cutting of small to medium sized sections – in single or in pack forms.

The EB-330FAS NC swivel head metal cutting band saw features an automatic hitch feed with a 178 mm (7-inch) touch screen controller, storing 20 programs. It boasts an inverter controlled infinitely variable blade speed from 25 mpm to 85 mpm.

In automatic cycle, the saw cuts from 0 degrees to 45 degrees right. In semi-automatic cycle, it’s 0 degrees to 60 degrees right. The saw also features hydraulic vice clamping with a manual hand wheel adjustment.

The saw is able to cut infinite lengths, backed by a 500mm stroke hitch feed vice with ball screws and servo driven motor. Blade life is maximised thanks to friction-reducing ball bearing blade guides which ensure minimal blade clearance wear.

The saw frame can lower quickly toward the material, automatically detecting the start-cut point, thanks to a mechanical position sensor.

A bi-metal blade function retracts the vice after cut, preventing the blade from rubbing on return, reducing blade wear.

Additional features include a quick action lock/release lever for the swivel head, a heavy-duty gear drive system and a blade cleaning brush

The Metalmaster EB-330FAS bandsaw is vibration free to operate, low on noise and great for clean, high precision cuts.
