Bandsaw training, commissioning and re-training

The bandsaw has evolved significantly since its invention in the 19th century. But with such a great utility comes complexity; operating a bandsaw machine safely and efficiently requires an intimate understanding of the machine’s workings, its potential hazards and the techniques to leverage its full potential. Saws UK therefore provides a guide to bandsaw training, commissioning and re-training.

Regardless of the specific type of bandsaw, be it horizontal or vertical, metal-cutting or wood-cutting, comprehensive training is crucial. Recognising the need for expert-led, comprehensive bandsaw machine training, the Saws UK University took shape.

Training begins with a deep dive into the machine’s architecture, exploring each part’s function and interaction with the whole system. Participants are guided through the myriad components of the bandsaw, from the blade, guides and wheels, to the motor and the drive system. Operators also learn about safety, daily machine operation and bandsaw maintenance. As participants progress, they delve into more advanced topics, such as fine-tuning machine settings for different materials, troubleshooting common issues and mastering advanced cutting techniques. 

The process of bandsaw commissioning sets the foundation for the successful operation of the machine. It is the initial set-up, where the bandsaw machine is assembled, installed, tested and adjusted to ensure it operates as efficiently and safely as possible. This is why bandsaw commissioning is an essential component of the training programme at Saws UK University. 

Bandsaw machine re-training ensures that operator knowledge and skills remain current, aligning with the latest developments in bandsaw technology and industry practices. Saws UK University tailors re-training sessions to the needs of attendees, covering everything from basic refresher courses to advanced workshops focusing on new technologies and techniques.
