What should you look for in a band saw sharpener?
A band saw sharpener is a significant investment for your company. The machine you choose will contribute to the efficiency of your operation and the quality of the products you produce for years to come.
So, how do you make the right selection?
One of the most important benefits that a good band saw sharpener can provide is repeatability. Each band saw tooth must be ground to the same precise standards for a smooth, straight cut with minimal material waste, while prolonging the operating life of your band saw.
Ease of operation is another major consideration. The simpler a machine is to set up, adjust and maintain, and the fewer labor hours required to sharpen a saw, the more cost-effective it’s going to be.
And, of course, durability is a crucial factor. The longer a machine performs satisfactorily without downtime the greater your return on investment.
Finally, reliable service must be available when you need it. This includes the training to help you properly select, install, and operate new equipment, convenient warehouses with parts to provide your needs quickly, and the field service personnel to give you necessary assistance.
