In Booth A-3568, Kalamazoo Machine Tool (Portage, MI) eliminated the miter-left cutting feature on their gravity-feed autocut H310 U bandsaw in response to customer requests for a lower-priced cold saw that still delivers the same quality performance. This bandsaw is still capable of mitering 60 deg to the right and has a TEFC 3-phase drive motor with two speeds: 140 fpm and 280 fpm. Its Autocut feature insures that each cut is fed exactly at the same rate, eliminating the need to open and close the valve on each cut. The cycle start button is located in the trigger switch for safety. The blade will turn off at the end of the cut and the solenoid will hold the sawframe where lifted. Additional features of the H 310 U include an easily opened/closed vise with a handwheel, a quick handle for repetitive cuts, carbide guides with rollers, a totally enclosed worm gear transmission, full coolant system and full blade guarding. Several optional conveyor systems are available.
