HE&M Saw introduces the H220HA-DC-C dual-column, metalcutting, fully automatic bandsaw. The saw’s columns are constructed of structural tubes, creating a stout arm configuration. The guide arm slides on linear rails for better guide arm travel and stability. The guide arm also travels with the adjustable side of the main vise so the saw operator doesn’t have to move it close to the material as the material size changes. Instead, the guide arm is moved automatically when the vise closes. The saw has a 22-in.-by-22-in. capacity and uses a 2-in. blade.
