Wellsaw Model 1318-SA Semi-Automatic Horizontal Bandsaw

The model 1318-SA is a true semi-automatic horizontal bandsaw that eliminates the time consuming operations of a manual saw while increasing safety, productivity and increasing operations. The PLC efficiently manages the strength and precision of cuts.

  • Manufactured in the U.S.A.
