MEP Shark Bandsaw 282 SXI Evo (Semi Auto): cap’ 280 x 200mm

The SHARK 282SXI evo is a semi-automatic hydraulic Bandsaw that can cut from 45° right to 0º to 60º left.



The SHARK 282SXI evo is a semi-automatic hydraulic Bandsaw that can cut from 45° right to 0º to 60º left.

Machine is controlled by a single axis microprocessor with the latest generation of controllers for semi-automatic sawing machines designed by MEP of Italy.

Operation is simple, you start the cycle by means of the push-button. Thereafter the following steps are carried out: the vice closes and the motor starts, the head goes down to execute cut, motor stops, head returns to top position and vice opens.

Also as standard the 282SXI Bandsaws has additional cutting cycles of Manual and Dynamic cycle. Dynamic is similar to semi-automatic dynamic cycle except the operator lowers the head manually then engages the trigger in the handle to engage the semi auto mode.
