An overview of the company and its organization, products, services and capabilities.


Pat Mooney Saws has established itself as a leading provider of metal sawing machinery and saw blades in North America. The Company is the North America sales and service representative of NISHIJIMAX Carbide Cold Saws (Japan); DANOBAT Band Sawing Machines (SPAIN) FMB Mitre Cutting Band Saw Machines (ITALY) and PMI Aluminium Cold Saw Machines.



In addition to representing KANEFUSA Carbide Saw blades, the Company also operates a Cold Saw Sharpening Center running 24 hours per day. Pat Mooney Saws has built its reputation on stocking both machines and parts for immediate delivery. Our technical support staff is available to help each customer either over the phone or on site depending on the needs of the customer.

FMB Mitre Band Saws combine the advantages of a circular cold saw with the speed of an abrasive saw and the capacity of a traditional band saw. Our semi-automatic versions offer hydraulic clamping, positive hydraulic cutting pressure and auto return after the cutting cycle. Our automatic band saws offer production, accuracy, ease of set up and versatility in a compact package. Our FMB gear drive saws are designed for large capacity sawing.



The Nishijimax NHC-230 CNC Carbide Cutoff System Saw features a 9 in bar stock capacity. Even with this increased capacity, the NHC-230 is still fast and accurate enough to replace 3 to 4 production saws. Fact is, the NHC-230 saws 9 in round 1045 bar stock in 50 seconds and to near finish quality.

Nishijimax’s use of a unique saw spindle drive system for the NHC-230 allows for 25 to 70 rpm blade speeds with unusually precise torque control. A 51 hp induction motor drives the saw blade spindle via a reduction gearbox. The rpm of the gearbox in controlled by a FREQROL Inverter Drive. Nishijimax’s NC Saw Spindle Feed Axis ensures that a precise feed rate is set automatically and input chip load is maintained. The saw blade feed rate is controlled via an AC Servo Motor with Encoder, a Mitsubishi Programmable Servo Drive and a precision ball screw. Compared to hydraulic systems, there is no fluctuation for temperature or condition of the oil. Job set up takes less than five minutes with the CNC Controller.

The rigid construction of the Nishijimax System also contributes to its highly accurate operation, and surface finishes from 40 to 80 RMS. The saw head travels on hardened and ground linear rails and the saw blade housing is mounted to the massive saw head. The saw blade is guided into the workpiece by ceramic guides that provide 6-point contact for zero-deflection and blade wobble.
Further increasing precision, the NHC-230 Series is equipped with a hydraulic material clamping system with horizontal and vertical clamps. An exclusively designed Nishijimax powder metal saw blade brake eliminates vibration as the blade enters the cut during high RPM sawing.
