HBE Series Engineered for Durability
Behringer’s HBE series of band saws features rigid, fully enclosed machines with solid iron bow-frame construction. The cast iron, produced at the company’s foundry in Germany, is employed to dampen vibrations, contributing significantly to both the cut quality and the blade life of the saw. The rigid cast iron construction also maintains consistency from project to project, so you never worry about strength or durability.
Engineered with safety, energy efficiency and affordability in mind, the HBE series is excellent for applications from aluminum to stainless steel, single bars to bundle cutting, and everything in between. Available in seven models from 10 inches to 41 inches of cutting capacity, the machines boast a variety of features. The ball screw servo-driven feeding gripper assures the industry benchmark in both tight and repeatable length tolerances, minimizing waste with very short remnant pieces, Behringer claims.
Precision guiding systems ensure the right cut, every time, and electrically controlled chip brushes remove chips for better blade life, cut quality, and cleanliness. Material feeding capabilities make maneuvering your payload a breeze, the company claims.

. Starrett’s Blades Ideal for Abrasive Metals
The L.S. Starrett Company offers a range of carbide-tipped band saw blades ideal for cutting extremely hard, abrasive materials. The blades withstand extreme cutting pressures and offer a high resistance to wear and fatigue.
The range of saws include Advanz MC7, which utilizes a progressive four-tooth grind, creating seven distinct chips. The end result is less wear when compared to blades with conventional triple-chip tooth formation. The four-tooth grind is very effective on nickel alloys, stainless and tough-to-cut tool and heat-treated steels.
Advanz MC7 features exclusive Starrett tooth geometry which has a progressively ground trapezoidal tool design and positive rake angle. Exclusive Starrett edge preparation minimizes micro chipping and the blade is made of sub-micron grain carbides. The blades offer precision cuts for a superb surface finish and provide an excellent cost-per-cut solution for production sawing. Blades are offered in multiple sizes in widths from 1 ¼ inches to 2 5/8ths inches and thicknesses from 0.042 inches to 0.063 inches. For more information, visit www.starrett.com
