MEP Shark Bandsaw 452 CCS: capacity 460 x 320mm

SHARK 452CCS are manual band saw machines that can cut from 45ºright to 60º left.



SHARK 452CCS are manual band saw machines that can cut from 45ºright to 60º left. This model is available in the manual version or with the Cut Control System (CCS). We usually only stock the CCS version. With the CCS the bandsaws can make single cuts without operator, using the head weight controlled by a spring and a hydraulic brake.

We can offer the machine in a MA version, this means it includes a pneumatic vice that that opens and closes by means of a manually operated valve (or by means of a foot pedal which is optional).
