Ocean Terminator Band saws
Ocean Terminator Band Saw Models
Are you sick of waiting for
your steel service center to deliver your cut-to-length parts while
the penalty deadline looms ever closer?
Ever wished you could buy
direct from the mill and save on your raw material costs?
Do you hate wasting labor,
flame cutting and grinding the large beams and columns that your
small saw just can’t cut?
There are lots of band saws on the market, and many of
them claim to work well for structural steel applications, so why should
you choose the Ocean Terminator over the competitor's band saws?
Structural Steel Sawing Options
Lets look closer at your
structural steel sawing options...
1. A vertical band saw at first glance appears to be an inexpensive way to get a
lot of capacity for little money. It also appears to be the most bang for
But driving the blade horizontally is painfully slow and
ultimately costs the fabricator in lost productivity as his workers
wait for the material to come off the saw.
The lack of rigidity also
means that you cannot drive the blade fast and the ends are seldom
square, requiring expensive final finishing.
2. A scissor style band saw blade moves in the vertical direction, and
these band saws also
appear to give a decent rage of capacity for an inexpensive price.
Once again the rigidity of a scissor style band saw is only good in
small sizes, but once you get above 20", a scissor style band saw
will give slow inaccurate cuts, due to the frame flex and the
inability to drive the blade fast.
3. Large structural steel cold saws are
exceptionally good cutters of steel, but have become prohibitively
expensive. Finding a cold saw that will cut a 42" beam is next to
impossible and will set you back hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Additionally the blades are exceptionally expensive and very few
sharpening services handle the large blades required to do beams and
profiles up to 42"
Standard Features - Ocean Terminator Band Saws
So now lets take a look at what makes the Ocean
Terminator Band Saws so successful....
Huge Sawing Capacity
First of all the Terminator band saws were designed
specifically for structural steel fabricators who cur large and heavy
profiles. They are ruggedly built to handle the largest and heaviest
profiles available in the industry.
The Ocean Terminator is available in two sizes – a 30”
band saw and a 42” band saw. Both are a dual column, dual miter design,
specifically to handle the largest steel profiles, and beams up to 850
lbs per ft.
Dual Column Design
To cut large structural steel profiles with a band saw,
it is essential to utilize a dual column design. This ensures
exceptional rigidity, and this rigidity ensures accurate cutting with
minimal blade deflection, and it also allows the blade to be driven with
increased cutting feed rate.
This results in fast accurate cutting. And the Ocean
Avenger reflects the latest state of the art design, by the industry
leaders Hyd-Mech, the rock solid solution for sawing.
Miter Cuts Both Ways
The ability to miter cut in both directions
significantly reduces material handling time and reduces your cost per
cut. The Terminator miters up to 450 left and 600 right. The miter cutting is achieved through the use of a heavy
duty hydraulically powered slewing ring shown here.
Straight Cuts Every Time
The Terminator utilizes 2” wide blades featuring the
latest in band saw blade technology. The 60 attack angle is
the ideal angle for structural shapes and ensures fast, accurate and
repeatable cuts. Hydraulic band saw blade tensioning provides consistent
automatic blade tension while allowing quick and easy blade changing.
Fast Accurate Positioning of the Band Saw blade
The laser guide allows the operator to quickly line up
the saw cut-line at the precise position, significantly reducing
A powerful 10hp/7.5kw motor is mounted directly to a two
stage gearbox. An AC inverter drive provides a large range of blade
speeds, ensuring efficient cutting of all profiles and materials. The
direct down-feed system allows easy adjustment of the feed rate and
Digital display is standard on the Ocean Terminator Band
Saws. The Digital display provides easy to read feedback of the angular
miter position as well as the blade speed.

The dual vises provide material clamping on both sides
of the blade, and positively grip the material at any miter angle. As
standard equipment, the Terminator Series saws are equipped with a
plunger-style overhead clamp, reducing cutting vibration on large
structural shapes, increasing cutting accuracy.
Reduced Setup Time
The idler-side guide arm moves in tandem with the front
moveable vise ensuring proper positioning of the guide arm relative to
the material width at all times. Replaceable carbide insert guides
housed in the guide arms provide exceptional accuracy and vibration
Long Blade Life
A hydraulically driven blade brush keeps the blade
gullets clean, maximizing blade performance and life. The large
30-gallon coolant reservoir and pump delivers ample coolant flow through
the nozzles to the carbide faced guides. A wash down hose and spray gun
Simple to Operate
The Terminator’s pedestal mounted console can be
positioned for best operator viewing and safety. The selector switches
and push-buttons allow the operator to control all machine functions.
