Bandsaw Machines - The New-age ‘Power Saw’
Bandsaw machines were well-popular since the earlier half of the 19th Century and the idea was conceptualized in 1809 by a British individual named William Newberry. Though bandsaw machines were technically advanced but weren’t considered to be usable for a long period of time, owing to associated tribulations of boosting the saw blades’ strength or repairing them in case of breakage. However, a significant patent was put forth by a London-based inventor Henry Wilson, which focused on enhancing the band saw functionality in relation to sudden strain while in use. The advancements in bandsaw machines, over the course of years, were carried out with a primary focus on enabling ‘continuous cutting’ that offers optimal outcomes.
The demand for bandsaw machines spans across domestic as well as international markets, for various applications of woodworking, lumbering, metalworking, and material cutting. Sensing its escalating demand from various industries, manufacturers are focusing on use of quality raw material and incorporation of precisely-balanced wheels that ensure operational steadiness and smoothness. In addition, manufacturers are also focusing on development of bandsaw machines entailing minimal maintenance, coupled with additional benefits of sturdy construction and extended durability.

The growing industrialization in emerging countries and increasing population demands have been driving the automobile, construction, food, and power generation industries and is expected to grow significantly in the upcoming years.
An Inclination towards Biomass Usage for Energy Generation Creating Demand for Bandsaw Machines
- The growth in the energy production through the use of biomass would increase the demand for biomass, subsequently boosting the global bandsaw machines market. The use of biomass pellets has significantly increased in the recent past for harvesting biomass energy.
- For instance, in 2017, biodiesel accounted for 24.1% of the energy production in the market of Canada. This noteworthy share of biomass in the energy production will help the growth of the bandsaw machines market.
Greater Cost Savings Associated with the Use of Bandsaw Machines over Other Types of Saw Machines
- Bandsaw machine blades are thinner than circular saw blades, resulting in a significantly smaller kerf or chip removal when compared to circular saw blades, generating significant material and cost savings over time. These traits of bandsaw machines have made them the preferred choice in many end-use industries.
Manufacturing Industries Embracing Industrial Automation
- OEMs and system integrators of machine tools, such as band saw machines, are adopting the trend of industrial automation to gain a competitive edge by introducing PLC-based machines, which in turn, is expected to create ample opportunities in the global band saw machines market during the forecast period.
Untapped Potential in Precision Cutting Tools Industry
- Fully automatic bandsaw machines are used for cutting complex edges but are not as widely adopted as other metal cutting machines owing to the slow speed and less accuracy. With advancements in the manufacturing technology of bandsaw machines and incorporation of PLC and robotics, bandsaw machines can tap into a wider market of machine cutting tools. The automotive, metal sheet cutting, and other industries demand the use of high precision cutting machines, where bandsaw machines can further extend their presence.

Bandsaw Machines Vs Chainsaw Machines – What’s Winning the Productivity Battle?
Bandsaw machines are bringing the shine off chainsaw variants, owing to their unmatched efficiency and impeccable precision. The perfect placement of blade teeth and the matchless operating speeds underpin cutting abilities of bandsaw machines, and this has been further complemented by latest technological innovations incorporated in the existing as well as new product models. Bandsaw machines possess the ability to cut materials almost as quickly as large chainsaw machines, yet with a relatively lower capital investment and higher accuracy. This, in turn, is working in favor of the manufacturers who are actively involved in development and commercialization of bandsaw machines.
Considering the requirements coming from modern cutting applications, bandsaw machines have come a long way in terms of versatility and functionality. Excellent bundle-cutting capabilities, accurate feed units via servo drives, gear motor speed & horsepower options, programmable workstations for recurrent jobs, and capability to get smooth cuts in rigid materials are some of the distinguished features that further push the relevance of bandsaw machines. However, it remains indisputable that chainsaw and bandsaw machines will continue having their own unique places across industrial ecosystems, and the demand for chainsaw is unlikely to decline at once in light of its compatibility with a specific set of applications.
Automation in East Asia: The Precursor of Growth
Asia has been stealing the spotlight since the last few years, with respect to the trend of automation spreading its roots across the key countries. With China leading the pack, East Asia has been experiencing a myriad of economic and social benefits in the light of the massive-scale adoption of automation by industrial operators. OEMs as well as system integrators of machine tools, such as bandsaw machines, are drawing upon this trend by establishing strategic partnerships with prominent distributors in East Asia. In addition, companies active in the global bandsaw machines market are endeavouring expansion of their operational bases in China and Japan, which will further help them lift their profit pools to new heights.
