If you need to slice really big stuff, you need a really big saw. The KASTOmaxcut is a really big bandsaw. Compared to the the person squatting next to it, the blade is thicker most people’s arms and the wheels are almost as wide as a person is high.
A 29hp motor powers either a bi-metal or carbon bandsaw blade which can be hydraulically twisted to make either horizontal or vertical cuts. According to KASTO’s website, you’d use this saw to cut slabs, ingot moulds, forged shafts, open-die forgings, marine crank shafts, shafts for turbines, large tools of all qualities and material like titanium, Hasteloy, and Inconel, which are difficult to cut.
You can purchase machines the that range in cutting width from 41″ to 81″ (that’s over 2 yards!). KASTO doesn’t post a price for the bandsaws on their website, so you’ll have to give them a call if you’re interested.
