ยป All of the workshop machines are designed for high accuracy sawing to length of tubes, sections and solid materials as well as mitre cutting. The range extends to 260 mm capacity for round stock, 310 x 260 mm for flat. Mitre cuts are from -45 to +60 degrees and the angle is continuously adjustable, as is the band speed, which can be set from 20 to 110 m/ min. A torsionally rigid, vibration-damped, cast iron frame ensures excellent cutting quality, even when processing difficult-to-machine materials. In the KASTOwin pro AC 5.6, the company will present a high-performance bandsaw offering short cutting times, long tool life and intuitive operation. The automatic machine is optimised for use with bimetal and carbide blades. Depending on the type of blade, processing times can be more than halved. Cutting range is 560 mm and the smallest dimension that can be cut is 25 x 25 mm. The shortest residual length is 10 mm for individual cuts and 35 mm for automatic operation, enabling operators to minimise waste. .
