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.
Universal robust band saw is appraised for general use in continuous uninterrupted production plants and in work-shops (work
on locks, maintenance) as well. 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.
The machine is equipped with high-performance industrial hydraulic unit. Pressing a single switch will execute complete cutting cycle –
material clamping, band and cooling system start, cutting, band and cooling stop, arm uplift to the original adjustable position and vice
unclamping. All of this in connection with hydraulics-controlled saw band feed into cut significantly increases cutting efficiency, especially in
larger series and cutting of full and high-quality materials.
When you switch to the manual mode you can control all functions separately. Hydraulic unit allows you to set the required pressure of the
vice. 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. Large base and
massive arm turning system with large loading surfaces ensure exceptional stability of the machine even when cutting heavy workpieces.



  • Continuous adjustment of the cutting angle within the range 90°–60° when the workpiece is clamped tight.
  • 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.
  • Simple locking and adjusting of the desired cutting angle on the angle scale.
  • Massive quick-clamping vice ensures easy and reliable material clamping.
  • 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. Coolant tank with a 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 control by ergonomically placed controls (electrical and hydraulics) on the base of the machine.
  • The machine is equipped with a hinged stop with a 500mm scale. Hinged system prevents jamming of the material during cutting – it prevents saw band from damage.
