Abstract

Sawing is the process of cutting a workpiece with power band saws, hacksaws, and circular saws. This article discusses the process capabilities and limitations of band sawing. It provides information on band sawing machines, their fixtures and attachments, band construction and materials, blade design, and cutting fluids associated with the band sawing process. The article also discusses the variables considered in band saw machining. In addition, it presents examples representing the comparison of contour band sawing with milling and shaping in various applications. The article concludes with a discussion on the safety precautions to be followed during band sawing and on friction band sawing, circular sawing, and hacksawing.
