Innovated version of the well-known ARG 250 model series that has been produced for 25 years, with a brand new, uniquely
designed saw band arm. Increased maximum diameter of the split material from 250 mm to 260 mm. The latest concept of the arm
casting with cavities is fitted with running wheels with an increased diameter. The larger diameter of the wheels ensures less
bending stress of the saw band. All this ensures an outstanding rigidity of the whole system, long service life of saw bands and
maximum cut precision. The hollow parts of the arm contains all wiring and coolant lines, which protects them from damage. The
new arm concept also greatly simplifies saw band replacement or cleaning of the inside of the arm - you just open the hinged
cover and it stays in the upper position. Apart from creating an entirely new design of the arm, we also made many technical
adjustments and changes improving the quality, user comfort and service life of the machine. As an accessory, you can use a
saw band cleaning brush, synchronously driven from the drive wheel.
Fully automated CNC band saw is generally suitable for cutting big series in the heaviest and non-stop operating plants. The
machine is equipped with a workpiece feed by industrial servomotor with a new control system. The servomotor and ball screw
ensure high speed and maximum accuracy of workpiece feed, even in multiple feed when cutting long pieces. Options of setting
three feed rates – 27, 42 or 50 mm/s acording to weight and length of the workpiece to be cut. Maximum length of a single feed is
500 mm.
Central control panel with a big colour touch screen (7.5”) ensures simple intuitive control of all features of the machine. The control unit
allows for programming of up to 60 programmes for quick setting of the feed length in repetitive production. Each programme can be
annotated, e.g. by the drawing number. Possibility of programming and cutting of different number of pieces of different sizes without the
need for further operation of the machine. The machine can be controlled in fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual mode. In manual
mode all functions of the machine are controlled separately. Workpiece clamping and arm feed into and out of the cut in the desired position
according to section of the workpiece are controlled by hydraulics. Regulation of pressure of the feeding and fixed vice is included in the
standard equipment.
Maximum cutting efficiency is maintained also thanks to the possibility of setting optimum saw band rate by a frequency converter in the
range between 15 and 90 m/min., which significantly contributes to cutting accuracy and service life of saw bands. Maximum accuracy of
workpiece feeding is based on a very robust construction of the machine with all the main parts made of grey cast iron and massive
framework of the feeding system. Large base and overall massive framework guarantee exceptional stability of the machine even when
cutting heavy workpieces. The base is equipped with a large removable chips container and allows for installation of an optional worm chips
container. Industrial band 27 x 0.9 mm is manufactured in many versions and allows for cutting of wide range of materials, including
stainless steel or tool steel.



  • Continuous manual setting of the cutting angle within 90°–45°. The material can be cut by angular cutting or in automatic mode as well.
  • Very robust machine framework composes of castings from grey cast iron and ensures vibration absorption.
  • Modern concept of the band saw arm allows for large cutting ranges in upright and angular cuts.
  • Large diameter running wheels and precise three-side hardmetal guiding ensure long service life of the band and cutting accuracy.
  • Overdesign of running wheel bearings, tensioning wheel system and all rotary parts ensures long service life of the machine.
  • Noiseless and maintenance-free band drive is provided by an industrial electric motor with worm gearbox.
  • The machine is connected to a complete cooling system with a high-performance pump and possibility of regulating the flow on both guiding heads independently and on an additional adjustable outlet. Coolant tank with a high-performance pump is placed in the base of the machine.
  • The machine checks correct tension or break of the saw band. If the saw band breaks the machine automatically switches off.
  • Easy intuitive controls by ergonomically places controls on the rotary central control panel.
