OSHA Amputation: Meat-Cutting Band Saws Safeguarding Measures Mobile App
Band saws can cut wood, plastic, metal, or meat.
How does it work?
These saws use a thin, flexible, continuous steel strip with cutting teeth on one edge that runs around two large motorized pulleys or wheels. The blade runs on two pulleys (driver and idler) and passes through a hole in the work table where the operator feeds the stock. Blades are available with various teeth sizes, and the saws usually have adjustable blade speeds.
