band sawmill / vertical / stationary
Standard Salem Equipment Twin and Quad Bandmills utilize cast ductile iron wheels to allow higher operating rim speeds, up to 10,400 surface feet per minute, and higher strain capability which translates into faster feed rates and more accurately sawn lumber using thinner saw kerf than competetive offerings.
High Production Sawmills
For high production sawmills, fabricated steel wheels are available for wheel speeds of 12,000 or 14,000 surface feet per minute. This puts more saw teeth per minute into the cut allowing for faster feed rates up to the limit of band saw blade design.
Salem Bandmills are preferred by many saw filers for accuracy and ease of maintenance.
